The Ryerson Fashion Research Collection is located in the School of Fashion at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto. This facility is not open to drop in visits, but undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and visiting researchers are invited to request a research appointment. Appointments in Winter 2017 will be available on Mondays and Wednesdays (with some exceptions).
The information I will need from you in order to assist you and prepare for your visit includes:
1. The purpose of your visit, including the class and/or your research question.
2. When is your assignment or project due?
3. What designers, time period (decade) or type of garment (dress, coat, hat, shoes, purse etcetera) are you interested in?
4. Your contact info, including a cell number.
