Personal profile

Research Expertise and Interests

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

The modern fashion industry is my current area of research, and I am principally interested in oral histories of the rag trade in the post-war period. 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 at its productive peak in the 1960s and 1970s.
