‘As I thought about what to do with the clothes, I became more interested in what the different items had meant to me. About why I had bought them. What I hoped I might feel wearing them. Why some things I had bought again and again. Why we wear the things we wear and why some we keep and get rid of others. Which we attach an emotional value to and why. And what could be said about the world we live in by looking at the clothes we wear.’ – Alexandra Shulman

From the bra to the bikini, the trench coat to trainers, the slip dress to the suit, clothes are rarely just clothes. Ex-British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman explores their meaning in our lives and in her own – considering how our wardrobes intersect with the career ladder, motherhood, romance, sexual identity, failure, body image and celebrity.

In conversation with Hannah MacInnes, she’ll mix personal memories, observation and fashion history to look at how the clothes we wear – and choose not to wear – are the evocative and compelling companions to the lives we lead.

This event is in the Main Hall on the ground floor. For accessibility info: https://conwayhall.org.uk/about/visiting-us/
