Archivist Editions


The Archivist has a unique view of the fashion industry.
Non-seasonal, it does not purport to sell its audience clothes;
it prefers to showcase designers’ archives, important
personal collections and new emerging talent. Founded in
2012 by Jane Howard and Michael Harrison, the multi-media
project is not confined by format and takes no advertising.
It is inspirational rather than aspirational and seeks to
explore the cyclical nature of fashion; to change perceptions,
reinterpret and present to a new generation.

"Archivist does not sell clothing, and it especially does
not sell the new. What will unfold over the coming
issues will be the different ways the past can be retrieved
and celebrated and how various the ways are."

Professor Judith Clark
