Patricia Campbell Warner was born and educated in Toronto, Canada, receiving her B.A. in Art and Archaeology at the University of Toronto. Her M.A. and Ph.D. in design and the history of design were completed at the University of Minnesota almost thirty years later.

She has published widely in various scholarly journals and books on various aspects of the history of dress, including jewelry, slave clothing and the movies, but her major focus has been the subject of her book, *When the Girls Came Out to Play* (2006), on women's clothing for sports and the birth of American sportswear.
