How to Use this Guide

This guide holds several resources for the fashion industry. Since fashion is such a broad industry, this guide has divided resources into categories and subcategories. These categories are the navigation tabs on the left side.

If you click on these main categories, it will bring up the home page of that category. If the page has subcategories, these pages will show up under the home page.

For example, clicking on the history tab will bring you to the history main page. Once you click on that, the subcategories will show up underneath. If you don't click on history and hover over the tab, the subcategories will show up for you to go straight to them.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
