K11 Konversations: Artisanship in Fashion Beyond Time

Whalebones, aliens, and couture… how are all these related to the world of fashion? Dr. Claire Allen-Johnstone from the V&A Museum walks us through 200 years of fashion — and how historical style inspires alien couture!



Time shapes our experiences of clothing, from how we access a garment to its choice of silhouette, colour, and textile. In this K11 Konversation, Dr. Allen-Johnstone speaks with Jian DeLeon on the rich history behind the V&A’s capsule collection of British and French womenswear from the 1830s to 1960, presented at K11’s The Love of Couture: Artisanship in Fashion Beyond Time.



Listen to find out why wedding dresses used to be worn on more than one occasion, what unexpected materials were used in 19th-century clothing, the distinction between couture and haute couture, and the many changes in fashion history spurred by technological innovation and social change.



Learn how the legacy of this historical collection continues today, as 6 contemporary designers present their bespoke responses to the V&A collection at The Love of Couture exhibition, creating further connections across time and place.



Discover the artisanship of fashion today!
