Clare Rose is a fashion historian who is an expert on fashion before 1920 and on children's clothes. She currently teaches at the Royal School of Needlework, London and at the V&A Museum, and has been interviewd on the Great British Sewing Bee. She has worked as a museum curator and done research in museum collections and archives throughout Europe and the USA, unearthing unseen artefacts and documents that can change the way we think about the past. These include mail order clothing catalogues from the 1840s, copyrighted designs for clothing, pre-1914 fashion magazines, and photographs. Her latest book, Art Nouveau Fashion, uses the rich resources of the V&A Museum to give a new view of this fascinating period with many previously unpublished images.
