Talk: Nautical Chic
Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF
Join Fashion Historian Amber Jane Butchart for a talk on her new book Nautical Chic tracing the relationship between maritime dress and the fashionable wardrobe, uncovering stories, tracking the trends, and tracing the evolution of the style back to its roots in our seafaring past.
