Use our archives and special collections for research and to inspire your work. Here you’ll find costumes from the films of Stanley Kubrick, medieval manuscripts, rare fanzines and the work of famous fashion designers. We also hold work from UAL alumni.
The collections listed are open to the public. Select a collection or gallery you’re interested in to discover what we have and find out how to arrange a visit. (We recommend making an appointment in advance so staff can prepare).
