ILFR: Between Archive and Library
Located in the “Stasjonsmesterboligen” placed in front of the new headquarters of the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo (Norway), the International Library of Fashion Research was founded by Elise by Olsen in 2020. The Library started from a seed donation by Steven Klein of his 5,000+ pieces of
contemporary printed matter dating from 1975 until present, and today stores around more than 10,000 pieces. Opened in 2022, the library is now accessible for the public who can visit and study in the same space where the collection is archived, stored and exhibited.
