The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art would like to let you know about over 13,500 high resolution images of costumes and textiles from their collection which can be viewed free of charge on LACMA's website (http://www.lacma.org/collection/index.html/).

The pieces range from the 16th century to the present, and include such highlights as items from the Court of Louis XIV, major designers such as Chanel and Balenciaga, and textiles from all over the world, all with descriptions included. Many of these pieces have never been exhibited or published before.

The images can be downloaded, printed, e-mailed, or compared and contrasted with one another using the site's unique "Image Viewer."
