See the template documentation for more information. We also need experienced editors to assess tagged articles that haven't been assessed yet--see Category:Unassessed fashion articles.

  Name   Special Interests
Antique Rose I'm interested in improving and correcting the fashion articles. My interest is mainly focused on women's clothing.
Alex Shih Haute couture; elevating high fashion brands articles to featured status
Calliopejen1 Interested in improving the (often quite terrible!) fashion coverage on Wikipedia. Figured I would start this up to try to coordinate others' efforts. If anyone can help with this WikiProject, it would be much appreciated!
Daniel Case It's about time ... not only for this project but for the first male user on this list. I am sort of accidentally here, as a result of developing The Devil Wears Prada, and subsequently Anna Wintour, which I hope to make the first FA and GA in this project soon. Our fashion coverage has been horrible ... I think Wintour has the only decent biography of any fashion person; I've had to create or upgrade quite a few articles, and that's what I see myself doing mainly — biographies. We should also give some attention to Vogue.
Geraldshields11 I am interested in the economics of fashion and haute couture.
Grumpylawnchair I like writing about historical garments with a specialisation in circa 1800-1900's men's garments.
HeatherSmithfield I'm interested in Victorian fashion
James Santiago I am interested in helping out by contributing photos that may be used to give more visual content to fashion related articles. I have realized that is is not easy to get the rights to use photos even though there are people who just need a visualization of a concept mentioned on Wikipedia. All of my photo contributions from various runway shows and fashion shoots. All work from my site is cc-by-nc-4-0 and is fairly easy to use here because models sign blanket waivers that their likeness will be used across multiple forms of media.
Johnbod Really only historical stuff, and nearly all medieval (yes they had fashion too!). Also textiles a bit, especially early printed ones.
Julissen Interest : improving British and European fashion information and biographies.
JuneGloom07 My interest is improving the biographies of fashion designers. I've already got Giles Deacon up to GA and I hope to get Alexander McQueen up to GA too. I've also set my sights on improving Ben de Lisi and Gareth Pugh.
krushdiva I too love fashion and excited to contribute and improve fashion articles
Libby norman I'm interested in improving coverage of fashion on Wiki – I think it gets a hard time from some editors who don't seem to think it's 'serious'. I've added a few articles – including Stephen Marks, Joseph Ettedgui, Joseph (fashion brand) and BodyMap – which probably tells you I'm in a timewarp. I've also passed and improved a few others. I hope I can help nurture and improve across the board, although these days I am mostly wearing wellies and something warm.
lisacarolinamartinez I am a freelance fashion writer who has covered fashion weeks on three continents. With all the information on Wikipedia, I am disappointed not to see more fashion content. I aim to change that. I would love to not only increase our content, but enhance it as well with photos and video content. I want us to be a reference for fashion-related articles just as we are for other categories. I would like to contribute runway and red carpet coverage as well as more general biographical and industry information. And would love to discuss further with anyone who's interested about how we can REALLY galvanize efforts towards expanding and developing this project!--FASHION LOVERS UNITE!
Mabalu I have good general knowledge of fashion, with a interest in British designers, particularly the 1960s-70s boutique era. Also good knowledge of fashion terminology and dress history from the last 400 years. I'll be trying to revise and improve the British fashion designer bios, after seeing some absolute horrors of misinformation...
Marsattack I'm a fashion and costume design student and my main interest is fashion/costume history. I joined wikipedia because I just had to collaborate on the 1945-1960 article. Such an important part of modern fashion, and this article has been a stub for too long..I'm working on it! :)
Mbinebri If you see me around, I'm probably doing grunt work on the vast expanse of fashion model articles. Maintenance tags, categorization, fact-checking, copyediting, dealing with obvious policy violations, etc.
Mheart Interested particularly in designers.
Midnight Citian
Miranda Uploading pics from Commons and adding them to articles. Assessments.
modnik Credentialed fashion historian with emphasis on 20th c. fashion.
Nate Wessel Self-taught freelance fashion designer, working in the Midwest US. I'm interested in developing pages on sewing and patternmaking techniques. When I was learning (and still today) there was absolutely nothing of value online, that wasn't aimed at sewing from store-bought women's patterns or quilting. I want to help change that.
Nicole A. Jenkins A lifelong student of the history of fashion, I am currently writing a book with particular relevance to the sourcing, identification and care of vintage clothing. I also own and run a vintage clothing shop in Melbourne, Australia called Circa Vintage Clothing. My area of expertise is 20th century fashion.

theorb The fashion coverage is horrible. Let's try to make some improvements.
thiste Pretty much the same as Sara, I've been wanting to improve the fashion part of wikipedia for a long time. I think I could help in most of the areas fashion covers but I'm gonna focus on improving the models (and maybe designers) articles for starters. By the way, I'm french!
Tinkerbell I attended fashion school in New York with an interest in journalism. I appreciate fashion that is not trendy, yet still enjoy watching shows such as Project Runway.
Vickser Well, I saw this project and couldn't help but add myself. I used to work at TeenVogue, even though I now mostly try to pretend to care about serious things. Right now I'm working on an article for the always fantabulously dressed Henry Conway, but I'm happy to help out with other things. I've got access to like infinite databases, so if you ever need someone to try finding extra old sources, I'm you're girl.
Violetbeau Stumbled across this page when looking up a particular British designer. I love Fashion and I'd like to uphold the British end - so to speak!
walshga I'm interested in fashion as an aspect of organizational culture, such as business casual and interview suits.
Winston789 Fantastic! I think I've found my new home here :) My areas of expertise include haute couture, luxury leather goods and haute joaillerie.
WM-86 I have storybook characters with interesting hairstyles and different fashions (one of my guilty pleasures is collecting Sophisticate's Hairstyle Guide and other fashion magazines) - ever since I watched shows like One Tree Hill, 90210, Privileged, Gossip Girl and The Hills, I became interested in making my female storybook characters more beautiful than ever. I'm also joining to revert vandalism (I use VandalProof and Twinkle as well)! :)
Yamanbaiia Great project, i'de never thought of improving the fashion articles! For starters, i'll try and make my favorite designer (Chanel) Good Article material. I will also work in 40's and 50's articles.
