What is Apparel Anthropologist?
- Anthropology: is the study of humans, past and present.
- Apparel: is clothing, especially outerwear; garments; attire; raiment.
Together: Apparel Anthropologist is dedicated to the observation, analysis and advice on considering what to wear and finding new ways to think about and interact with clothing: from making smarter purchases, to buying local, and even looking at the bigger picture of how your daily decisions can make a difference for both you and your environment.
This is both a cultural study and a practical one. The hope is that I can also provide some tips on how to access your closet, cycle through the seasons, recycle, upcycle, and reinvent your wardrobe month after month.
