Clothes Tell Stories is an on-line Costume Workbook, a web-based resource for museums, students and the general public about how to use costume to tell stories. Costume is extremely evocative and always has an immediate appeal in museums. Clothes so easily illustrate many kinds of stories because, when correctly used, they bring an extremely personal, engaging aspect to our history. Costume Committee members – expert costume curators and conservators from museums all over the world - are contributing their expertise in this project. It will illustrate many aspects of working with historical costume which will be useful for non-specialists: terminology, exhibition techniques, successful labels, contemporary collecting, aspects of proper storage and handling, exhibition walk-throughs and much more.
