Tal Nadan, New York Public Library, Manuscripts and Archives Division to Present at Fashion: Now & Then

Tal Nadan is the Reference Archivist for the New York Public Library's Manuscripts and Archives Division. In addition to an MLS, she also holds a MS in the History, Theory and Criticism of Art, Design and Architecture. Her interests are in 20th century design as relating to consumer culture, previously studying packaging design for her master's thesis. The presentation will discuss the relationships of different areas of the industry and the modes of information sharing, rooted in the activities of the non-profit Fashion Group International throughout its 80-year history.

Tal's presentation "Fashion Group International and the Practice of  Information Sharing" will be followed by a five minute presentation by Jean Meek-Barker. Ms. Meek-Barker began her career assisting Paramount Studios librarian Gladys Percey. Among her credits, she has been a photo stylist for Mademoiselle, a store merchandising representative for Harper's Bazaar, a reporter at the New York Herald-Tribune, and fashion editor for Redbook. Ms. Meek-Barker is the current archivist at Fashion Group International, and a 50-year member of the organization.

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.
