Newcastle Fashion Week

Newcastle Fashion Week Talk ' A Stitch in Time'4We have just presented a talk called ‘A Stitch in Time’ for Newcastle Libraries as part of the events during Newcastle Fashion Week 2013.

It was a  very interesting, lively and informative lecture about the design/construction and inspiration for my  historical gowns,as well as a brief history of the people who wore them.

Integral to the event was a display of four costumes on mannequins with headdresses, fans, underwear and jewelry as well as a personal appearance by King Henry VIII.

Costumes for Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots and Anne Boleyn were also included.

You can view an album of all the events on the Newcastle Fashion Facebook page.

I have included some photographs of our event below I hope you enjoy viewing them.  The Newcastle Fashion Week pictures were taken by local photographer Lee Scullion.
