Lectures

FORTHCOMING LECTURES 2016

  • Saturday 4 – Sunday 5 June, 11am – 4pm: Underwear Weekend Course (V&A)
  • This included talks from Edwina Ehrman and Susanna Cordner, curator and research assistant for the V&A exhibition ‘Undressed, A Brief History of Underwear’. There was a detailed explanation of the construction of 18th Century corsets – with a real example – from Jenny Tiramani of the School of Historical Dress. Dirk-Jan List came from The Hague to speak about technical advances in 19th Century corsets and crinolines – with examples from his collection. Lorraine Smith talked about the development, and the marketing of the bra – also with examples – and Shaun Cole looked at the marketing of mens’ underwear

    Dr Rose,

    I recently heard you speak as part of the Travel in Style lecture I am attending at the V & A. I was fascinated by your talk, so much so that I would be most interested in hearing of any other lectures you may be hosting at the V&A in the future.
    Best regards,
    Victoria

      Dear Victoria
      Good to hear from you – so glad you liked my lecture on ‘Travel in Style’! I’m giving several lectures at the V&A in the series on ‘Geniuses of Fashion, Chanel to McQueen’ which meets on Tuesdays. The series has already started but individual days may have spaces: I’m lecturing on Mary Quant and Yves St Laurent on the 16th June, and Issey Miyake and Jean Paul Gaultier on the 30th. Hope to see you there!
      Best wishes

      Clare
