    The theme of this year’s conference pays tribute to Ann Saunders MBE FSA (1931 - 2019), former Editor of ‘Costume’ and celebrates the huge contribution that she made to the Society.
    The conference will explore all aspects of how paper and clothing are related whether it be in the context of making and designing, communicating ideas or as sources for developing a further understanding of the history of clothes.
    We are seeking papers which will explore the three sections of the Conference:
    Designing and Making, Communicating and Recording and Understanding and Analysing
    Designing and Making can include (but is not limited to):
    Communicating and Recording can include (but is not limited to):
    Understanding and Analysing can include (but is not limited to):
    The theme has a natural affinity with the Society’s Patterns of Fashion and Patterns for
    Performance Awards – both have flourished from Janet Arnold’s Patterns of Fashion
    publications which provide an invaluable way in to studying dress and learning how to
    create your own patterns. The 2020 awards will be presented, judged and awarded at the
    Papers, with the exception of those by keynote speakers will be of 30 minutes duration
    We welcome papers from academics, collectors, curators, designers, researchers, students, and independent scholars.
    Those wishing to offer papers should submit an abstract of about 200 words with a short CV in WORD (no formatting).
