About this Event

The first in a series of public Curator's Talks, Amy de la Haye is in Conversation with Claire Wilcox. The focus is Claire's new publication Patch Work: A life amongst clothes (Bloomsbury Press, 2020), which comprises a deeply poignant memoir in which she portrays the story of her life and work as a V&A curator through the lens of her own clothes and dress in the context of museum objects. Together, they recall their experiences of working as fashion curators at the V&A.

Claire Wilcox is Senior Curator of Fashion at the V&A and Professor of Fashion Curation at London College of Fashion.

Amy de la Haye is Professor of Dress History & Curatorship at London College of Fashion. Formerly she was Curator of 20th Century Dress at the V&A.

This will take place online on Teams. Numbers are limited and you will be sent a link 24 hours before the event.
