Kass McGann

Reconstructing History
Fashion Historian
Kass McGann has been studying historical clothing ever since the Textile Curator at the National Museum of Ireland told her she asked too many questions and why didn't she just come over and have a look for herself. So she did! That was 20 years ago.

Since then, her interests have expanded to include all time periods medieval through modern and span the globe from Near West to Far East. She has presented costume lectures in Ireland, the UK, Australia, and Japan as well as all over the US.

In 1996, she began ReconstructingHistory.com to share what she'd learned with the internet public. In 2003, RH Patterns was born, giving her a new way to share information on historical clothing with the world. Although at heart an authenticist, she loves to see the creativity with which people combine history and fantasy in their costume designs.

These days she runs RH Patterns on the island of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands with her husband and three retired racing greyhounds. She does not own any socks.
