Bernadette Banner (born 1994/1995 (age 26–27)[1]) is a New York City-based dress historian and YouTuber who is known for reconstructing clothing, ranging from the early Medieval era to World War I, but primarily on the Victorian era.[2][3] She has focused on the lack of quality in modern fast fashion.[4] She is also known for sewing using Original Practice, the art of crafting clothes using historically informed methods.[1][5]

A significant area investigated by Banner has been the accuracy in reproductions of historical clothing, especially in films like Little Women (2019) and Beauty and the Beast (2017).[6] In one incident, one of her hand-made dresses was poorly copied and sold by an online company for a fraction of the cost that Banner made it; Banner bought the dress and made a video in which she criticized its poor construction.[7]

Banner worked as a costume designer on a parody video of Broadway musical Frozen.[8]
