Thu 2nd February 2017
Paid Entry (£15.00)
Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF
"An enlightening talk with authors and journalists Caroline Young and Ann Martin exploring the chequered history of tartan and tweed from their origins in the Scottish Highlands to their reinvention, growing and continued popularity and use in contemporary fashion design, music, art and film. Both tweed and tartan are fabrics with a strong cultural identity and history, but have been reinvented to create multiple meanings, particularly when used in street fashions and in haute couture to mimic or parody the aristocracy, and to act as a subversive symbol of rebellion."
Price £15 / £12 students includes a complimentary drink and exhibition entry.
