Our network of members studies the past, examines the present, and anticipates the future of clothing and fashion. Keynote speakers in the past include award-winning costume designers, researchers, authors, curators, and scholars, with themes ranging from innovative design and exhibit mounting, creation and execution of museum exhibits, fashion theory, clothing and fashion as a form of social justice, and new discoveries in research and technology.The CSA Angels Project is a one-day event, held each year near the site of the CSA National Symposium, which provides conservation, storage and curatorial assistance to a costume collection at a small institution.Volunteer opportunities are available in areas such as silent auction receiving, setup, and tear-down; pre- and post-symposium tour logistics; registration; the Angels Project.
