Join celebrated designers Dame Zandra Rhodes and David Sassoon in conversation with Dovecot Director Celia Joicey about their fabulous careers in fashion.

Following the transformative Mid-Century Modern period of the 1960s, Zandra Rhodes and David Sassoon have shaped the course of British fashion over the past 50 years. Enjoy this rare opportunity to meet two of Britain’s most innovative and entertaining fashion designers as they discuss their life and work from the ‘Golden Age’ of British couture and the 1960s boutique to today’s fast-paced world of fashion, and designing for everyone from Princess Diana to Freddie Mercury.

There will be an opportunity to meet Zandra and David following the talk with a book signing of Zandra Rhodes: 50 Fabulous Years in Fashion, available from Dovecot Shop.

Tickets from £20 (+booking fee) includes entry from 1-2pm to Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant featuring the fashion of Mary Quant, Bernard and Laura Ashley, alongside the work of radical designers and photographers who transformed the social landscape of post-war Britain.

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