Introducing new WT contributor Heather

 assess.jpgWorn Through has provided me with a fabulous way to tell others about some of the dress news on my mind and discuss interesting concepts with readers. Yet, there never seems to be enough time to really devote all I want to. One of the best things about Worn Through for me has been some of the friendships and professional associations that have developed right here on these pages via the comments and personal emails that have stemmed from topics on the blog. This is how I got to know Heather Vaughan, who I was already aware of through her active work when she was the editor of the Costume Society of America’s E-News. Since Worn Through has proven to be a fun and worthwhile endeavor, yet more time consuming than I can handle, Heather graciously accepted my invitation to be a regular contributor and to provide her insight into the world of fashion and dress scholarship.  Heather is currently an independent scholar of fashion and dress out of California. She’s a 20th century buff but has been trained in the range of fashion and textile history through her schooling and work experiences. She’s got some other web activities going including running a listserv for Alumni of the NYU Visual Culture: Costumes program. I look forward to see what Heather posts and thanx to her for agreeing to be part of the Worn Through team!
