Fabric of The City Symposium


as part of a major textile exhibition exploring one of the most influential and fascinating periods in London’s history – the Huguenot weavers in Spitalfields – who helped to create a leading textile centre in the 17th century and whose legacy is still influencing contemporary fashion and textile manufacture.

It is rare to get such high calibre speakers together for what promises to be one of the most illuminating discussions on all aspects of garment design and fashion making focusing on Spitalfields from the 17th century through to today.
