Dame Vivienne Westwood + Death of Taste keynote address

24 Nov 2006

The Death of Taste has now sold out, but by popular demand, a ticket for the evening session of the Death of Taste conference is now available to purchase separately from the day conference.

The Death of Taste examines the work of making, styling and fashioning taste within the context of increasingly speeded-up fashion trends and the constant plundering of the recent past. Speakers range across the different intersections in the taste-making process: fashion designers, trend predictors, journalists, stylists, fashion theorists, editors and retouchers will discuss the ways in which they help create, develop and kill off tastes both old and new.

Death of Taste keynote address

Colin McDowell, senior fashion writer for The Sunday Times Style section and one of the most authoritative fashion commentators will give his view of fashion's contemporary malaise.

Dame Vivienne Westwood interviewed by Brenda Polan

This is not the first time that Westwood has been interviewed by Polan at the ICA- the first interview took place in 1993. This interview will reflect on the changes that have taken place since then, to fashion as a whole and to Westwood as a fashion designer without parallel.
