Sally has broadcast on BBC Two, BBC Four and BBC Radio 4 and her publications include Miller’s Collecting Modern Design. She is a freelance arts journalist for local, national and international media and has a PhD in the history of art and design.

A Passion for Fashion tells the story of 20th century fashion design, tracing how clothes, textiles and accessories were influenced by contemporary history.

It includes the elegant fashions of the Edwardian era, the glamour of the 1920s and 1930s, the austerity of the 1940s, the futuristic fashions of the 1950s, the liberating styles of the 1960s and the avante-garde fashions of the 1970s to the present day.

This day of special interest includes the opportunity to handle museum quality clothing and accessories. Participants are also welcome to bring along (or wear!) their own items of vintage and antique fashion, accessories and jewellery for valuation as part of the day.
