Dr Clare Rose is an expert on the history of fashion who frequently lectures at the V&A, and is the Senior Lecturer in Contextual Studies at the Royal School of Needlework. She has published many books and articles, and her training as a museum curator means she has a detailed understanding of the techniques that produce innovative garments.
