Why hello there! My name is Bianca Esposito and I am a writer, seamstress, and historic clothing enthusiast living in Denver Colorado. A long time fan of vintage fashion and costuming blogs, I started The Closet Historian in 2013 as a way to document my adventures in style, sewing, history, and travel.
As a child I dreamed of becoming a painter, but as a teen I discovered the world of high fashion through the pages of Vogue and my interest in becoming a fine artist wavered. I quickly became enamored with the work of designers Alexander McQueen and Christian Lacroix, in turn switching from paint brushes to needles and thread. I went on to get my bachelors degree in Apparel Design & Production, and continue to design and construct the majority of my own wardrobe today.
I dream of traveling the world, visiting as many museums as I can, one day finally learning to speak French (and Japanese), and publishing my long-suffering novel. Here on The Closet Historian I hope to share my sewing projects, forays into costume history, beauty tips, DIY's, travels, and other adventures with all of you. Thanks for coming along for the ride!
