What we do

The European Fashion Heritage Association (EFHA) is a non-profit international organisation established with the aim to valorise and promote the European fashion heritage worldwide.

The Association operates also as a centre of expertise in the digital fashion heritage domain, promoting best practices on digitisation, cataloguing, online access and valorisation of fashion heritage content.

EFHA is organising every year special events, like international conferences and training workshops with the aim of raising competencies and skills of its members on crucial topics like digital curatorial practices, digitisation, metadata standards and copyrights issues. The Association also regularly applies and supports the participation of its members in new projects and initiatives in the Programmes of the European Commission (e.g. H2020, Creative Europe, CEF).

EFHA is also running the fashion thematic aggregator for Europeana, supporting fashion institutions across Europe in the publication and curation of their digital content online in the Europeana portal, the European cultural heritage platform and it has a prominent role in the Europeana Aggregators’ Forum and in the Europeana Network, advocating for open access to digital cultural heritage and actively contributing to the Europeana Core Service platform.
