Research Expertise and Interests

I am a historian of the British fashion industry, principally interested in the cultural, social, and economic impact of fashion business and manufacturing since c.1840. 

The modern rag trade - which is to say the ready-to-wear and off-the-peg fashion industries - is my current focus. My research aims to shed light on the hidden world of the fashion factory, and goes beyond questions specific to socio-economic concerns around workplace conditions to offer new perspectives on the importance of the rag trade and its workforce in the creation of British fashion from c.1960 to c.1990.
