Fashion week season is coming… 📸
To celebrate this event, a little look back at the history of fashion, its evolution and its links with art through iconic pieces: from egyptian textiles to the innovative Tabi boots by Martin Margiela... Thanks to this playlist you will know more about fashion than all the front-row stars of any show combined (quake in your boots Anna Wintour)!

Have you ever thought much about the politics of fashion? How can paintings help us understand the social context of fashion throughout history? Is the woman in the famous Arnolfini portrait pregnant or does her dress make it appear that way? This chat with Amber Butchart, fashion historian and host of BBC’s ‘Stitch in Time’ series, about the hidden meanings we can glean from the fashions in paintings.
