About the Digital Fashion Resource Centre

Seneca's Fashion Resource Centre has, since 1989, collected what Canadians have worn.  The purpose of the collection is to provide a resource centre rather than a museum so that those who study fashion may do so in a unique way.  The examination of items worn by men, women and children from the past provides, awe-inspiring insight and information for all students of fashion. The Centre was established through the dedication of many faculty in the School of Fashion including Claire Becker, Caroline Routh, Bev Newburg and Dale Peers.  It has been supported by all of the faculty within the School of Fashion and utilized by not only students and faculty of the multi-disciplined programs within the school but by other departments across the College.

Dale Peers is the current Costume Coordinator and has been actively involved with the collection since its inception.  Her focus is on the care and preservation of the collection as well as finding ways to bring this unique method of appreciating and studying fashion to as many people as possible. She strives to find ways for others to enjoy the collection as much as she does.

The Digital Fashion Resource Centre is a collaboration between Seneca's School of Fashion and Seneca Libraries. It has been created to provide access to 360 images and descriptions of key pieces in this collection.
