I work in a museum where we deal with insects all the time. Here is a useful website, museumpests.net designed for museums, which describes all insects damaging to items in your apartment including clothes moths and carpet beetles. Check the "solutions" section for info on how to treat an infestation, and the pdfs on the various insects. Cedar is nice but does not work - if your cedar chest is tightly sealed that is probably what saved your clothes from being infested, and absolutely keep things in ziplock bags, vacuum them, and dry clean when you can.
