Spring to the British Library

Photo pf British Library gate by pshabIf you are down in London between 1 – 5 March, why not pop into the British Library or sign up to attend some of the events at the British Library’s Spring Festival.  This year it is a celebration of fashion, design and film.

Highlights include a Fashion-themed LATE on 1 March, in partnership with the History of Fashion department at Central Saint Martins. Hear from Dylan Jones, (editor-in-chief of GQ Magazine) and fashion illustrator Tanya Ling and watch its exclusive ‘paper fashion show’ of specially commissioned designs by the Central Saint Martins Print Design students and leading designers such as Giles Deacon and Osman. Try out a new look in the styling area where you can get a make-over with Chantecaille, or for men, Pall Mall Barbers. Take part in live costume drawing and dance to music by iconic British DJs, Princess Julia and Jeffrey Hinton.  Lastly, there will be a pop-up exhibition showcasing a series of postcards from some of the most influential figures in the fashion world, including Gareth Pugh, Alex Fury and Adam Selman, telling us about their favourite item in the British Library.
