Professional Fashion &
Costume Historian

Fashion & Costume Historian, My current & previous work on the business side & editorial side of fashion affords me a rich & varied understanding of the fashion landscape.

A Bit About
Me

I am passionate about Black history & how topics like economics, culture & society intersect with fashion. Fashion is political! It’s an often-overlooked social science which has deep-rooted systems & stories that reveal a great many facts about the past & the present cultural climate..

My Portfolio

In my role as a Fashion & Costume Historian, I examine fashion through the
lens of race, class & culture.

My Portfolio

Hi! I’m Shelby!

I’m Fashion & Costume Historian.
True Life: I’m addicted to black blazers & black boots. I have a meme for every occasion lol. I’m obsessed with costume design in films (which is how I was first introduced to fashion) & can often be found on your timeline stunning my favourite period piece’s costume moments (Marie Antoinette 2006!!!!!!) I’m a Vogue alum, a part-time NYU Costume studies Grad student & a full-time Luxury Marketing Manager (Is a career split personality a thing? If so, das me.)

Let's Work Together
