The Oral History Project of the Fashion Industries contains over 300 interviews by prominent 20th-century fashion industry insiders. In-depth interviews with individuals in every segment of the fashion business create a broad historical record that is drawn directly from the knowledgeable, informal, and often, colorful verbalization of its practitioners. The Oral History Project is a unique record of facts, ways and means, points of view, practice and personality that could be preserved in no other way.
The Oral History Project of the Fashion Industries began informally in 1977 and was officially funded by a grant from the Educational Foundation for the Fashion Industries beginning in 1981. The project was guided by an industry advisory committee chaired by Mrs. William Randolph Hearst, Jr.
