Pre-Loved Podcast: Dr. Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell
Today we’re speaking with Dr. Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell, and she is an award-winning fashion historian, curator, and journalist. She is the author of Fashion Victims: Dress at the Court of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, and Worn on This Day: The Clothes That Made History.
I wanted to have Kimberly on the show to discuss fashion history because it’s a different kind of “pre-loved” -- we love these clothes we see in museums in a different way from their original owners.
We talk about fashion history in a museum context, how a piece of clothing goes from being “vintage” and owned by a person to belonging to a museum collection, and some -- of the many! -- fascinating stories of pieces she’s worked with. And so much more!
Thanks for listening, let’s dive right in!
