Join us for an exploration of Asian textiles and their influences on fashion. Starting at ULITA we will discover patterns and techniques in our textiles collections from across China, Japan, India and Indonesia. We will then visit the adjacent M&S Company Archive to see how Asian visual culture has inspired 20th century fashion design.  Refreshments will be served at the end of this event.

This event is booked up, but we have a waiting list via Eventbrite.

This event is part of Katagami – the craft of the Japanese Stencil exhibition at ULITA which runs until 7 December 2017.
