Unclothing the fashion history of the Kings Road with Amber Butchart
- Thursday 27 February 2020
- The Reed Centre
- 28 Convent Gardens, London, W11 1NH
British fashion historian and writer, Amber Butchart, invites you to take a walk down the 1960s Kings Road with her during a live talk with Q&As at the Reed Centre.
Amber will revisit the golden age of fashion through the lens of the revolutionary road, exploring how it became the epicentre of the fashionable West End during a defining period of cultural change that upended all mainstream traditions.
The event is part of the Birth of Cool - a digital and multimedia youth project funded by the National Lottery Heritage fund and organised by Octavia.
Places are limited, with online tickets given out on a first come first served basis, so make sure to register for yours in advance.
Amber specialises in the historical intersections between dress, politics and culture. She has written books on the impact of film on fashion, and regularly speaks at cultural hotspots from the Tate to the V&A. She recently presented the BBC Four’s A Stitch in Time, a six-part series that fused biography, art and the history of fashion to explore the lives of historical figures through the clothes they wore.
