Join Beca Lipscombe and Lucy McKenzie in conversation with fashion historian Mairi MacKenzie

Beca and Lucy will explore their collaborative practice as Atelier E.B and discuss their Faux Shop, currently on show in the museum.

Faux Shop asks the question: Is window dressing simply an everyday part of popular culture? Or is it a unique and often overlooked form of art and design practice? With bricks and mortar retail having to radically adapt in the digital age, these questions seem more pertinent than ever.

Atelier E.B (Edinburgh Brussels) is a label run by designer Beca Lipscombe and artist Lucy McKenzie, who have been showing and selling fashion in galleries since 2007. Based between Edinburgh and Brussels, their work blends art, design and historical research.

Mairi MacKenzie is a fashion historian and Research Fellow in Fashion and Textiles at Glasgow School of Art. Her research explores the social history of perfume; the relationship between popular music and fashion; and the history of dressing up and going out in Glasgow.
