Description
Inspired by the MFIT exhibition Fashion Unraveled and organized by MFIT and the Fashion Research Network, this one-day colloquium explored the concepts of memory, wear, and imperfection in fashion. Speakers focused on imperfect garments and the significance of dressing as a habitual, intimate, and ephemeral act.
Bethan Bide is a fashion historian interested in sartorial biographies, fashion cities, and the role of fashion in museums. She is currently a lecturer in fashion visual cultures at the University of Middlesex. Bethan was awarded her PhD in 2017 for a thesis entitled Austerity Fashion: Rebuilding London Fashion after the Second World War. This project was jointly supervised by Royal Holloway, University of London, and the Museum of London. She holds an MA from the London College of Fashion, a BA from the University of Cambridge, and previously worked making comedy programmes for BBC Radio.
