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!


  1. You are rockin' that hat. I love it on you. I wear a lot of hats, but have been afraid to try the smaller ones like that.

  2. Oh, yes! Learn French! I have a collection of French fashion & sewing magazines from 1900 through the 1920's and am going to take classes so I can read the original instructions. Hopeully, in a few years I'll be able to leave Google translate alone and not end up with gibberish results.
