Alicia Mihalic holds an MA in Theory and Culture of Fashion from The University of Zagreb, Croatia. For the past four years, she has been employed at the same graduate study programme as an Assistant Lecturer responsible for courses related to history and ethnology of dress and textiles. Her research explores the intersection of dress history, fashion theory, and material culture studies, and establishes connections between clothing and its socio–cultural representation in visual media. She is mainly interested in the phenomenon of nostalgia, trend mechanisms, and the revival of former dress styles through the development of marginal clothing discourses during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Her most recent research focuses on principles and practical implications of historical dress reconstruction within the museum environment.
