In the last few years the collection has expanded considerably; it is now considered to be one of the most important private collections related to fashion in the world (as ranked by Elle USA in November 2010). The Alexandre Vassiliev Foundation has amassed over 50,000 items and includes vintage clothing, predominantly European, from the early eighteenth century until the present day, and various fashion accessories. The Alexandre Vassiliev Foundation also holds a large collection of photographs and a library related to fashion.
