Bookmark | Of Another Fashion

In The Anthology’s Bookmark column we explore some of the most inspiring corners of the internet. This week’s was submitted by Boston-based food blogger Camille of Broken Record (whose premise is “lousy photos, good food”). Take a look…


Of Another Fashion is this amazing project being done on the fashion histories of women of colour in the US (although there’s plenty of overseas stuff too – people’s photos of their moms before they immigrated, for instance),” she says. “It’s crowdsourced so people submit their own photos.  So it’s cool conceptually as well as having amazing content.”

The site, curated by Minh-Ha T. Pham, an Assistant Professor in the History of Art & Visual Studies Department and the Asian American Studies Program at Cornell University, is full of gorgeous vintage shots from all over the world as well as the stories behind them. It’s well worth bookmarking.


Besides, I want that dress.

    Thanks for featuring the site – and also, thanks for the traffic, my site skyrocketed yesterday! Sorry, hungry fashionistas, I haven’t updated in a couple weeks, but I promise new food’s a-comin’!

    I could stare at these forever…imagining the stories behind each. I adore the polka-dot dress in the second shot!
    I’ll be heading over to see the whole collection – thanks!
