Talk Tuesday: Fashion Icons - Celebrating Gay Designers

Take a look at this wonderful costume display and find out more about the designers who created them in this talk with senior curator Pauline Rushton.

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality in Britain. Fashion Icons: Celebrating Gay Designers highlights and celebrates the work of some of the best-known fashion designers, from Christian Dior to Karl Lagerfeld, some of whom were forced to hide their sexuality in the past in order to protect their careers.
