Thank you so much for your kindness”. Alessandro Masetti

…the committee did a dynamite job, leaving us all to go home very happy. Fortunately for us all, November ’16 isn’t really that far away. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I’ve been raving (but you already knew that) to all and sundry about the amazingly high caliber of presentations and about how brilliantly they worked with one another. You and your team have outdone yourself – again!!! Thanks for everything“. John Birkett

Thank you for the wonderful experience that was Costume Colloquium IV. Many of us have marvelled at how well the programme was put together. It was interesting to see so many synergies between the papers, which does not necessarily always happen. I was also very appreciative of the time built in to speak to the other participants. And of course the behind-the-scenes access was marvellous. I would particularly like to thank the two young women who helped with the organisation during the days. They were very helpful when a bottle of red wine broke in my bag and ruined the print-out of my talk just an hour before I had to speak! Thank you for allowing me to take part. I very much hope I can do so again”. Beatrice Behlen

“And thank you to all the organizers’ for their hard work in arranging such an inspiring meeting! It was certainly the most professionally organized that I have ever attended”. Sarah Fee

“Grazie di tutto” Piyanan Petcharaburanin

“Thank you for the opportunity that the Colloquium Fashion gave me to show my work and get to know the research of other participants. I congratulate all those involved in the Costume Colloquium IV, that make  each day of the event  a special and pleasant time, combing knowledge, leisure and exchange of experience. I take this opportunity to suggest to you for the next Colloquium, to mention in the programming in which language the lecture will be presented. I missed questions about my work, maybe because that was read in Italian, and the majority of participants did not use the translator simultaneously. Thank you, again, for your attention, professionalism and cordiality. I hope to meet you again in 2016”. Caterina Argolo
