Hosted on Zoom, the session will include an introduction to the exhibition from a member of the V&A curatorial team which will highlight key objects and themes in the show, including the establishment of the House of CHANEL and the evolution of her iconic design style.

Following the introduction to the exhibition, students will then have the opportunity to meet professional fashion illustrator, Erin Petson, hear about her career and influences, including how she has been inspired by the legacy of Chanel. Then, students will be able to take part in a series of inspiring activities to help develop their own creative style and illustration techniques. This webinar supports the Design & Technology and Art & Design curricula and exam specifications.

Simple materials will be required to take part in the session. You will receive full details of the materials once you register for the event.
