In order for fashion to march forward, it must possess the ability to look back. For the fashion obsessed, their archives have often taken years to build and can be a remarkable representation of fashion history. To celebrate the release of her new book, Collecting Fashion, acclaimed fashion stylist and recipient of the BFC’s New Wave Creative Award, Alex Carl, will be in conversation with Co-Founding Partner of Owenscorp Michèle Lamy and fashion journalist, writer and critic, Alexander Fury, to discuss their own collections, give insights into why and what they collect, and offer advice on how those fascinated by fashion can start creating their own archive.
