A Life of Fashion: The Wardrobe of Cecil Beaton By Dr Benjamin Wild

Cecil Beaton’s wardrobe went through many changes during his lifetime, expressing at once his confidence and insecurities. This illustrated lecture traces the story of how he used his clothing to curate personal and professional facades as his international career and fame grew. The lecture will be given by Dr Benjamin Wild, a cultural historian who writes and lectures about the history of dress. He convenes courses for the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, and is teacher of history at Sherborne School. Further details of this and future lectures can be found on our website.
