International Women’s Day TalksPosted: March 8, 2017
With today being international women’s day, Textiles lecturer Sally Grant organised a day of textile talks from a range of women speakers working in the create industry. I found the lecturer series very interesting, as they covered a variety of subject areas, from women workers to women in business. O
I found of the speakers to be of interest in different ways, from Amanda Peter’s about her vintage up cycling clothing store, appreciating the textile behind the garments and the stories they may hold, to Jean Jenkins talk about her work with women factory workers in India and the surrounding countries was fascinating. As this is an area that I find very interesting. The final talk by Alex Wall a fashion designer based in Wales, discussing her time at university and her fashion business and it’s approach to sustainability.
