William Morris in Fashion
Sorry you are too late, this event has been and gone!
This talk takes a light-hearted look at the dress of his family, friends and colleagues in artistic circles and the use of Morris furnishing fabrics for clothing around 1900 and in the 1960s.
About William Morris in Fashion
William Morris was noted for being 'very careless and unfinished in his dress' and he railed against the extravagances of Victorian fashion, but he was very interested in clothes and promoted the idea that they should be both practical and beautiful.
This talk will take a light-hearted look at the dress of his family, friends and colleagues in artistic circles in the late nineteenth century, the sometimes surprising use of Morris furnishing fabrics for clothing around 1900 and in the 1960s, and the present-day proliferation of Morris patterns in designer collections and fast fashion. Come dressed in Morris if you can.
