Tartan and Tweed

About

This illustrated lecture focuses on fashion over the last century whilst looking back at the journey these fabrics have made from traditional cloth to stylish fabrics. The talk also investigates the use of tartan and tweed in fashion in the collections of leading designers including Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Chanel who have used these textiles in a fresh, subversive way, while also paying tribute to their history. Making use of first person sources, historic documents, paintings and fashion photographs, this is a complete overview of tartan and tweed in Scotland and beyond.
