Welcome to COSTUME

Welcome to the new website of the ICOM International Committee for Museums and Collections of Costume!

The International Committee for Museums and Collections of Costume is delighted to welcome ICOM members with a specific interest in apparel. Established in 1962, the over 400 members of the Costume Committee are museum professionals and costume historians from all over the world committed to the study of all aspects of presenting, preserving, researching and collecting apparel. Members share their expertise through presentations at annual meetings and publications in both digital and print formats. Topics include research projects, exhibitions, the discussion and demonstration of conservation and storage techniques, aspects of design, manufacturing and many other subjects related to dress. Annual meetings are held in locations throughout the world. An unsalaried Board of Officers, elected by the membership governs the Committee.
