Research Library


Our costumiers have an amazing knowledge of the period we deal in (1945 to the present day) and as a reference resource, we have built up a massive and comprehensive reference library over the past 25 years.

The Library consists of thousands of Specialist Books, period fashion magazines, catalogues, flyers, tear-sheets, photographs and films on DVD and video.

The Library covers every aspect of urban, club and street style through to high fashion, including character clothes, eccentricities, and even everyday work-wear.

In fact everything for your production needs, the library can be especially useful where accurate period details and authenticity are required: call us to access this resource.
