    Press/Media: Expert Comment


    Bryan Burnett meets Glasgow University dress historian Jade Halbert, and talks to her about her work uncovering the stories that clothes can tell us.

    Jade explains why clothes from past centuries are just as important as paintings or sculptures and what they can tell us about how we used to live. She also has lots to say about how clothes reflect our personalities. We all choose clothes to wear every day, and they all say something about us whether it's school uniform or football kit.
