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 blog in 2013 as a way to document my adventures in style, sewing, history, and travel. The Closet Historian has since expanded onto YouTube where I get to ramble on at length about vintage fashion and other topics that strike my fancy.

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 suddenly my interest in becoming a fine artist wavered. Enamored with the work of designers like Alexander McQueen and Christian Lacroix, I ended up switching from paint brushes to needles and thread. Those earliest sewing projects led to a degree in Apparel Design & Production where I further explored just what fashion meant to me. Years later I now design and construct the majority of my own wardrobe focusing on vintage inspired feminine style.
Fashion is a form of story telling, and just one of the ways I have found to explore the many ideas swimming in my head. And as much as I love creating apparel and images, it is writing fiction that truly holds my heart ensnared. It is my sincerest hope to share that shrouded side of my creativity with the world someday soon.

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 get to share my sewing projects, recreations of vintage style, travels, and other creative 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.
