Fashion History on Instagram

Some time ago I promised to make a list of the best fashion history accounts that I follow on Instagram, and I apologize to all the people who requested a copy of the list.  Instead of trying to figure out who wanted it, I’m just going to post it here.

I also apologize to those of you who do not have an Instagram account.  If you have a smartphone or tablet, then you can open an account just to enjoy this resource.  You don’t have to post any photos.  And you can always see my latest photo by clicking on the photo in the right sidebar, under “More Fashion History on Instagram.”

Keep in mind that  I follow a lot of people on Instagram and these are just the ones that have a strong fashion history emphasis.  Also, I only follow accounts where the person running it gives the source of each photograph.  There are dozens of people who post lots of pretty pictures from other sources, but this is not Pinterest.

I’m sure I have left some out, so I’ll be adding to the list.  And feel free to suggest any others that I may not have found.  @myvintagevogue  @documentingfashion_courtauld @americanagefashion  @madameweigel.patterns @fashiontextilemuseum @nyucostumestudies @amberbutchart @historyalamode  @beecroftartgallerycostume @julenmorrasazpiazu @fidmmuseum @fashionhistorymuseum @historicalgarments @the_art_of_dress  @unl_historic_costume  @fox_historic_costume @scadfash @museumatfit @fitspecialcollections
