Femme Fashion Forward blogger, Danielle Morrin, graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she obtained her MA in Fashion & Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice. It all began with women’s cycling costumes. She began researching developments for women during this period and became fascinated with women’s cycling ensembles (bifurcated skirts, bloomers, etc.). This developed into a research paper, which further became a theoretical exhibition, Cycling with Style, and spurred her interest in research on progress for Western women during this period as reflected in their clothing. She has since interned for many museums and fashion design house archives, and currently works as an archivist and fashion historian.

She hopes you’ll enjoy reading as she posts her research here and continues exploring this period. If you have questions or comments along the way, feel free to send them to FemmeFashionForward@gmail.com.
