History

The Westminster Menswear Archive collects, studies, conserves and presents significant works of technical menswear in order to connect people to creativity, knowledge and ideas.

The Westminster Menswear Archive was founded to establish and maintain a collection of garments and related artefacts to encourage and develop the study of menswear design from a technical and functional point of view; to advance the general knowledge of menswear as a design discipline, and to be used as a resource tool to inform contemporary menswear design.

The archive will strive to inform, encourage and inspire a diverse range of students, industry professionals, researchers and other users in support of their creativity, learning and research in fashion and related subjects. It will also underline the importance and relevance of the Westminster fashion archive within contemporary fashion, fashion education, research and scholarship and fashion practice, as well as with the broader public.
