This afternoon we were given a lecture by Colin McDowell, A well known Fashion Historian. I have to say I enjoyed this lecture more than any others I can recall in my last two years at Leeds University! Along with his wit and charm came a great deal of knowledge of 20th Century Fashion, I wondered if there was anything or anyone within fashion this man did not know about! When asked who he thought we should be designing for throughout our careers he calmly answered 'Yourself'.
He also gave us hope that one day we might be able to get out of this rut in fashion we appear to be stuck in at the moment with our 'throw away fashion'. To hopefully see some real designers emerge and deliever some creative new designs!
