- I am interested in the history of costumes, because I am also
studying world history. And you must be able to understand how people
through the ages have clothed themselfes and because through history
fashion has played a important part. also each period and countries
have always changed what people have worn through the ages.And so
fashion is as important as any other subject.
- I am interested in the history of fashion and dress because I am
seriously considering a profession to do with historical clothing,
possibly in theatre. I'd like to get some background knowledge on
different periods, which will help me out when I go to research
different times so I'll have a better understanding of what I am
looking for and where to find it. I am hoping to try and get as much
as possible out of this course because I really like history and I
love to sew, so maybe I'll actually construct a few outfits during
the next 4 months!
