Fashion Lecture

Yesterday, my 20th Century Fashion lecture was taken by the "grandfather of British fashion", Roland Klein. Attending fashion college with Yves Saint Laurent, and then taking his first jobs at both Jean Patou and Christian Dior, Roland Klein is considered a legend amongst the fashion world. Now retired from fashion and working in interior design, his website states: "Good design doesn't begin and end with fashion".
He worked as an assistant designer to Karl Lagerfeld, before moving to London and beginning his own line under his own name. We were shown some of his work being worn by the likes of Naomi Campbell and Yasmin Le Bon but most impressively, Princess Diana. He had some amazing experiences to share.

Answering my question about the recession affecting the price of Couture pieces!

Overall, it was such an interesting lecture, and really insightful to listen to.
