Amber Butchart at the Design Museum: Women, Fashion, Power

Our fashion historian Amber Butchart will be curating a series of events as part of the Design Museum's Women, Fashion, Power season. The series examines how women use dress to negotiate issues around power throughout history and across cultures, from Muslim dress and modest fashion to West African spirituality, and the use of uniforms in fashion from the 18th century to the present day. The series of events start in January 2015 so we'll give you something to look forward to in the new year! Click on the links below to find out more information and to book tickets.
