Hey guys,

bit of a mad rush to sort a thing out for a launch of another thing - needing some suggestions for reputable regency fashion historians if you guys know of anyone?
UK based as well.
Already reached out to Zack, but not had a response so far and running out of time to sort a fashion historian out!

Hope you are all fabulous as always

Curtis Fulcher is described as a fashion historian on his website, though the time period may not be what you are looking for.

Thanks, I've emailed Amber's rep.

Curtis could work as some of the works are Georgian, just majority are Regency

It’s a bit late but I’m doing a WEA course with Amy Miller and she’s very good. I don’t know if you could contact her through the WEA site.
