How does one start a career as a Costume Historian in a Museum?
THE MANIFESTO IS MUTATING! IT IS TURNING INTO A WIKI THAT CAN BECOME THE HIVE MIND OF ALL COSTUMERS, FINALLY LIVING UP TO IT'S SLOGAN: "COSTUMERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!" YOU CAN HELP IN THIS PROCESS BY MOVING PAGES TO THE NEW SITE AT THECOSTUMERSMANIFESTO.COM, HELPING TO EDIT THE PAGES THAT ARE THERE ALREADY, AND ADDING YOUR OWN ORIGINAL INPUT.
NYU in NY that works with the Metropolitan Museum of Art apprentices, and Kent State University in Ohio (which has a big museum and program). Your first step however, is to join The Costume Society of America which is where all the museum folks network, do conferences, present papers and all that career stuff. Also volunteer at once at a local museum (the bigger the better) that has a textile conservation lab. They are hungry for volunteers, and you learn lots for free. ---Tara
