Alexandra Shulman in conversation with Kirsty Wark

Clothes… and other things that matter

Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival Online 2020
Broadcast Date
Sunday 19 July

When we hear that Kirsty enjoyed this book so much that she read it in one sitting, we know that we’re in for a treat when she discusses Clothes…and other things that matter with its author, Alexandra Shulman.

This new and beautifully made book offers fascinating insights salted with a little insider knowledge – Alexandra was, of course, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue UK for 25 years.

Fashion is a British success story and firmly part of our cultural life so who better than Alexandra to give us her thoughts about the clothes we wear and how we wear them. Why do we choose and buy certain items? How do we feel when we wear them? Why do we love some but tire quickly of others? In this part memoir, part fashion history and part social commentary we could well find some answers.

If you love clothes and fashion or if you just want to be educated, entertained and moved, join Alexandra and Kirsty for an insight into the fascinating language of clothes.
