Event description

Description

A special event at Ace Hotel London led by Central Saint Martins' Fashion History and Theory Pathway Leader Alistair O'Neill that takes a closer look at the origins of what we call ‘style’ and the effect Jean-Michel Basquat had on both sides of the Atlantic in the 80s to the present day. From runway haute couture to street style, we will discuss the influence of art, music and social media on subculture. Alistair will be joined by four panelists who will be announced soon.
