Lunchtime Talk: Construction
What did power dressing mean for women in the 1980′s? How was the flapper girl a symbol of emancipation in the 1920′s? Was Victorian dress restrictive? Uncover the great social and political changes in women’s lives through a curator led tour of our fashion and fine art exhibition ‘Construction: Clothing, Image and Persona’.
2018 marks 100 years since the first UK women were given the right to vote and 90 years since all women were granted the right to make their voices heard. Yet in 2018 gender equality is still a long way off. Join us for a free lunchtime tour as we trace women’s struggle for equality by unpicking key items from both our historical costume collection as well as contemporary designer items on display.
