The Costume Society Annual Conference 

 

Clothing on Paper 

 

26 - 28 June 2020 


The theme of this year’s conference is a tribute to Ann Saunders MBE FSA (1931 - 2019) the former Editor of ‘Costume’ and celebrates the huge contribution that she made to the Society.

The conference will explore all aspects of the relationship between paper and clothing whether it be in the context of making and designing, communicating ideas or as sources for developing a further understanding of the history of clothes.

Our keynote speakers are

Dr Hormazd Narielwalla is a London-based artist who primarily works in the medium of collage. His practice also compasses original prints, artist books, and sculpture. Since gaining his Doctorate, he has built his practice around the extensive use of found materials, namely Saville Row and antique tailoring patterns from Europe which together have created a unique archive which explores ideas around the body and the way we choose to formally clothe it

Babette Radclyffe-Thomas is an award-winning journalist who has worked at some of the most influential fashion and style publications in Asia and Europe including Vogue China and Harper’s Bazaar and was the Editor of S Style Magazine and wrote fashion and beauty columns at China Daily. She obtained a Master’s degree in Fashion Journalism from the London College of Fashion in 2013 and won the Harper’s Bazaar Art Plus Fashion Journalism Prize the same year. She is currently a PhD candidate at the London College of Fashion writing her dissertation on fashion, gender and identity in China 

 

The theme of Clothing On Paper has a natural affinity with the Society’s Patterns of Fashion and Patterns for Performance Awards– both have flourished from Janet Arnold’s Patterns of Fashion publications which provide an invaluable way to study dress, reconstruct historic garments and use historic dress as the basis for new designs for stage and screen. The 2020 Awards will be displayed, judged and presented at the Conference on Saturday 27thJune.
