Artifacts of Style

Items of material culture relating to “communities of style” include articles of dress and “outfits” in the collections of “exemplars of style.” “Artifacts of style” may also include photographic and video and on-line media documenting dress and adornment styles (e.g., homemade YouTube reviews of wigs and instructional videos on hairstyling, snapshots and family photos illustrating dress and dress events).
