• Colour & Cloth: The Colour of Fashion book talk & launch

Mellow yellow, in the pink, feeling blue, green with envy. The Colour of Fashion delves into the significance of colour in dress, and explores how the symbolism has shifted over time. Caroline Young explains how black transitioned from a colour of mourning to the ultimate in elegance, how millennial pink has defined the Instagram generation, and beige, once a sophisticated favourite of Chanel, now reflects the normcore subculture.

Join us for a colourful talk and discussion, followed by the book launch party.

*Event includes free exhibition entry until 5.50pm, talk starts 6pm


(Tickets priced at £15.00)


Every ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, craft and design in all its forms.
