"Progress is never permanent, will always be threatened, must be redoubled, restated and re-imagined if it is to survive" - Zadie Smith
From the memories of a jumper knitted by your grandmother, the inspiration for a new career path, or an interest in how fashion can make the world a better place…join us for an evening where we explore the impact that fashion has on how we express ourselves, our lives and our values.
