Meghan G. Hansen
Experienced museum registrar with a love of fashion and costume design.
As Registrar of the FIDM Museum from 2009 to 2020, I was responsible for the record keeping of the Museum's collection of fashion garments, accessories, and ephemera. I accessioned new acquisitions, processed incoming and outgoing loans, secured insurance, trained and supervised interns and volunteers, installed and de-installed exhibitions, and squeezed in the occasional Instagram Un-Boxing video.
Research areas include: standards of museum practices; preventive conservation and collections management; history of fashion photography (1930s through present); history of runway photography; fragrance and the fashion industry; and 20th century fashion history.
