We are pleased to welcome you to the (renewed!) ICOM Costume Committee Annual Meeting 2018 website. The ICOM Costume Committee brings together the world’s museum professionals and costume historians to explore 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.

The theme of this year’s Annual Meeting is Fashion & Innovation. We hope to offer a varied programme, touching upon new developments as well as a historic point of view. It can be about the invention of the knitting machine as well as Virtual Reality fashion design. We would like to include revolutionary exhibition concepts as well.

The meeting will be hosted by the Centraal Museum in Utrecht, right in the center of the Netherlands. The meeting shall take place from 10 –15 June and is part of the fashion exhibition Jan Taminiau: Reflections. We will start at the Centraal Museum in ‘quaint and quirky’ Utrecht and visit other Dutch cities as well.

Please follow our activities during the Annual Meeting through Facebook and the ICOM Costume website.
