DESCRIPTION

The Visuology Lecture

Richard Anderson runs the leading independent bespoke tailoring house on Savile Row, and has spent all of his working life on the Row. His book, Bespoke: Savile Row Ripped and Smooth about his early years was published to great acclaim, and his links to the Museum are well-established: he is the master craftsman behind the red sequin suit on display, previously owned by artist Sebastian Horsley. Richard's desire is to bring new blood into the craft of tailoring, passing on some of the invaluable lessons he has received to the next generation. 
 
Richard will be in conversation with the museum’s fashion director Amber Butchart, discussing the history and evolution of Savile Row, and how it has adapted to the 21st century.

Following the discussion, Fenella Hitchcock will be discussing her research into the Sebastian Horsley archive.

Fenella Hitchcock is a writer and researcher and has worked as a pattern cutter and assistant producing fine art sculpture and taxidermy. After finishing training in pattern cutting and design, she catalogued the Museum of London's acquisition of clothing and ephemera belonging to Sebastian Horsley. Currently a postgraduate student at London College of Fashion, her dissertation 'Hookers, Dealers and Tailors' (named after the 2007 gallery show) focuses on biography, loss and memorial within the various Sebastian Horsley 'archives’.
