Fashion history is dominated by research on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, so it's important to be flexible when constructing your search, whether your topic is within these periods or beyond them.  In addition, fashion and costume history is a multi-disciplinary field, so explore many subject areas when you are doing research, including, anthropology, women's history, social history, sociology, and psychology.
