Lectures and Talks

Could be almost any subject, and in as great a detail as you wish. Suitable for small numbers or large conventions!

Fashion Shows

Timeline fashion shows, featuring perhaps, characters from history. In the past we have had themes including 'Lethal Beauty' & 'Noble Passions'. Our fashion shows can include character interaction and are quite different to the normal catwalk productions.

Victorian Workshop, Askern

'Fashion Forensics'

It has long been an ambition of Ginis' to let others see what she is privileged to investigate. In her work, a lot of access is granted to 'touch and handle' extant garments in the archives of museums and it does seem a shame not to let others see them. We have an idea of making videos of some of the initial inspections, which will show the materials, structure, construction, previous conservation, alterations - almost the C.S.I of clothing!
There is a possibility with interesting pieces, to do this as a live show for small to medium size audiences.
