Talking Design: Fashion Fiction

A four part series explore dress and fashion through the 19th and 20th centuries.

This four part series traces the representation of dress and fashion through 19th and 20th century fiction and poetry, personal memoirs , the glossy pages of fashion magazines and intellectual discourse. We ask what makes dress and fashion such a fascinating subject for writers? And how are fashion’s mythologies constructed and disseminated? Speakers include Clare Wilcox, Senior Curator Modern Fashion V&A, the renown fashion editor Suzy Menkes, Judith Clark, Joint Fellow in Contemporary Fashion, LCF/V&A, and Christopher Breward, Deputy Head of Research V&A and Editor of the journal Fashion Theory.
