About the Series

This is series of specially-commissioned 50-minute lectures to celebrate the first half-century of Wolfson College. In the series, eleven distinguished members of the college reflect on developments in their fields of expertise in the half-century since Wolfson was founded.

About the Lecture

Some fifty years ago the street, and what people were wearing in cities like London, Amsterdam and New York, became the main influence on High Fashion. Since then fashion developed into one of the most democratic ways of expressing ourselves. Nowadays screens have taken over this influential role. What is the impact of this change in fashion experience?
