The second International Europeana Fashion Conference, held on 9 April 2014 at the V&A, examined the fascinating intersection of fashion, heritage and the digital world.

Taking place just after the opening of the V&A’s exhibition, ‘The Glamour of Italian Fashion’, the conference examined digital fashion activities through the prism of Italy’s fashion houses, museums and archives.

The programme included talks by representatives from Italian fashion houses as well as contributions from noted fashion historians.
