Global Britain Local Stories  photo

Strong cultural identities exist side by side in communities up and down the UK. Clothing is evolving to reflect these environments. Join us for the next All Party Parliamentary Group for Textiles and Fashion lively debate.

In global Britain fashion is influenced by multiple cultures which are combined and distilled to create a richer visual language. At a local level, strong cultural identities exist side by side in communities up and down the UK. Clothing is evolving to reflect these environments, providing compelling narratives about people and place, society and politics.
Our speakers are drawn from a multitude of backgrounds brought together to discuss the importance of locality and identity on their design practice.
