Former Fashion Institute Librarian Alex Kosztowny returns to Crowell Library on Tuesday, October 10, with another talk about fashion history, this time from a technical perspective. Most people do not think about the craft and construction aspects that go into garment creation, but these elements play a vital role.

Alex Kosztowny is a Los Angeles based freelance designer and librarian who focuses on art, fashion, textiles, and the preservation of materials. He was an instruction and reference services librarian at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles and now works for the County of Los Angeles. He holds his master’s degree in library and information science from the University of California at Los Angeles as well as degrees in fashion knitwear design, theatre costume design, and business management.

Come to Crowell Library for this fascinating look at fashion history at Crowell Library October 10th at 7:00 p.m.
