At this online event, join Fashion and Textile Museum Collections Officer Gill Cochrane, as she examines pieces from the exhibition, Beautiful People: The Boutique in 1960s Counterculture, in previously unseen detail. Gill will share the secrets hidden within these garments and explore the concealed linings, and details you can’t see once the garments are on the stand. This is a unique opportunity to learn what happens ‘behind the seams’ of a fashion exhibition and discover some of the construction details and stories behind some of these joyful 60s and 70s pieces.
The Beautiful People’s eclectic and dramatic fashions were created by a range of talented and much-celebrated designers – their wardrobes were full of creations by Barbara Hulanicki (Biba), Alice Pollock and Ossie Clarke (Quorum), Michael Fish (Mr Fish) and Bill Gibb. Today works by these same designers feature in the current exhibition and in the Fashion and Textile Museum’s own collection.
This is a recording of the online event, Behind the Seams: Secrets of the Beautiful People, which originally took place on Thursday 3 February 2022 via Microsoft Teams.
