About Jennifer

Hello! My name is Jennifer.  I like fashion, art, food, travel, sewing, museums, and anything French (well, almost anything).  I am a fashion historian, costume mounting technician, museum professional, professional and at-home seamstress, and a French teacher and traveler. In 2015 I completed my Master of Arts in Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice at the Fashion Institute of Technology , where I learned to work with historic garments, including archival storage and care, scholarly research and writing, and curating and mounting costume and fashion exhibitions.  As an undergraduate, I studied linguistics and French at Boston University, but I’ve been making clothes and doing art since I was little, which led to my interest in Fashion Studies and museum work. I originally created this blog while I was working as an English language teaching assistant in Le Puy-en-Velay, France, so that I could share my adventures with my friends and family.  Since then, I have interned in several exciting collections, worked a summer on Nantucket, and moved from Boston to New York to Philadelphia, all while having new adventures, learning new things, and progressing in my career. This blog is a place to share my personal and professional experiences with friends, family, and other historic fashion enthusiasts and museum nerds. I hope you enjoy it, and I would love to hear from you!
