About Worn Through

In the crowded arena of fashion and style blogs there still remains a void for news and discussion about social-cultural, academic, historical, and critical thoughts on dress. Worn Through fills that gap with information on everything from smart textiles to museum exhibits to global trends to scholarships–as long as it’s about dress from a scholarly or analytical perspective.

Worn Through is a blog focused on dress and fashion news, events, commentary, and critique, specifically looking at the cultural and social aspects. Its primary focus is the academic and museum worlds of dress studies as well as geographic reports from around the globe.

Worn Through was established in June 2007 and has grown to be an established voice in fashion scholarship. Readership includes students, educators, museum professionals, costume designers, publishers, journalists, historians, designers, and many more with a passion for fashion.

Founder and Editor Monica Sklar, Ph.D. is a professional researcher and educator in the study of dress. Additionally, Worn Through features the regular contributions of multiple accomplished individuals from historical and cultural dress professions, as well as showcases the writing of numerous guest luminaries.
