Costume Institutes Collections Now Online

For the first time, nearly all of the Costume Institute’s large collection of clothing has been translated into an online database. View original works from Ungaro, Schiaparelli, Givenchy,  and many more.

The project was started in 2000, and since then the department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art has worked on formatting and digitizing information on 29,432 objects from the 31,000-piece collection. It is available to view through the museum’s Web site under Collection Database. The move is part of the museum’s initiative to showcase its entire holdings online.
