Lively fashion conversations and excitable style discussions!

“What suits people?   Why?   Who has style?   How to wear clothes?   Wearability of designs.  What is design?   How do you design?   What is bespoke?   What works for me?   Which colour?   Which shape?    What is style?   What is my style?   What’s an investment?   What is fashion?   What is fashion forecasting?   What is image?   What is prediction trending?   What is the history of dressing?   What do you mean ‘historical textile’ influences?   Why are there so many textiles already available?   What is fabric construction?   How do you create clothes?   What is fashion history?”  –  Who has created an influence in fashion?

These are a fraction of the topics discussed every day. It is lively. It is fun.

Also debated has been who the Bowes museum could exhibit after the YSL exhibition finishes on 8th November.

The Claire shop customer short list includes (in no particular order):

Dior,  Thierry Mugler,  Vivienne Westwood,  Zandra Rhodes, Alexander McQueen,  Jean Paul Gaultier, Jean Muir,  Hardy Amies,  Emanuel;  Local designers – Bruce Oldfield  / Giles Deacon,  Yohji Yamamoto, Mary Quant.
