Fashion Creatives Shaping Pop Culture
Fashion and music have long shared a powerful mutual attraction: from the Sex Pistols to Madonna, Kelela to Lady Gaga, fashion has consistently amplified our understanding of the band (and in many cases the brand) – fuelling the fantasy, giving context to the sound and adding depth to artists’ wider agendas.
From pop videos to editorial shoots, via the evolution of some of the industry’s most significant and era-defining pairings and collaborations, this talk explores the power of fashion as a make-or-break tool within the music industry’s creative process – making it an essential reference point for anyone interested in fashion’s role as a medium with which to innovate, communicate and build enduring brands.
This talk and evening viewing of The World of Anna Sui exhibition starts at 6pm with a glass of wine in the Museum foyer. The talk starts at 6.15pm for 6.20pm in the Fashion Studio and lasts for approximately one hour including an opportunity to ask questions. It is followed by a book signing. Ticket includes admission to the exhibition and guests are welcome to view this before or after the talk.
