Cassie Davies-Strodder graduated from Sussex University with a BA in Art History  in 2006. For the last five years she has worked as an Assistant Curator in the Fashion and Textiles Department at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London; Britain’s leading museum of Art and Design holding the National Collection of textiles and dress. Whilst her specialism is early 20th century dress, Cassie has been heavily involved in the Contemporary Programme at the V&A, working on the hugely popular ‘Fashion In Motion’ series of contemporary fashion shows at the Museum and ‘Friday Lates’, the V&A’s a curated programme of evening events working with contemporary practitioners in fields as diverse as Architecture and Japanese Lolita fashion. Whilst working at the V&A she studied for her Masters Degree in History of Design and Material Culture under the tuition of renowned dress historian Lou Taylor.  Cassie’s research into the Heather Firbank dress collection at the V&A will be published early next year in a book entitled ‘Shopping for Fashion in Edwardian London: The Heather Firbank Collection.’

On Friday, October 19th and Saturday, October 20th professionals from the fashion industry, libraries, archives, academic institutions, publishers, and museums will gather at LIM College for Fashion: Now & Then, a conference on the past, present, and future uses of fashion information that will consist of lectures and panel discussions.
