This Funzing Experience:
There comes a time in every fashionista's life when they open their wardrobe, expectant, and to their shock and horror there's nothing to wear. Nothing. You feel like you could keep digging until you reach Narnia, but it's as though your wardrobe has abandoned you. Instead of staring at bedroom enemy no.1, take a cue from disruptive fashion lover Caryn Franklin MBE.

She's former fashion editor of i-D magazine and prime time TV presenter PLUS a professor, stylist, producer, author, campaigner and activist, world record breaker, a potential criminal according to one CEO, and even a reporter in another land avoiding sniper bullets!

This fun and informal talk chronicles the changes Caryn has seen in the fashion industry from a time before London Fashion Week existed to date. In her direct delivery style Caryn will take you on a journey through the highs and lows of a fashion mover and shaker, and will emphasise her work on projects which focused on women empowerment and sustainable design processes.

She'll investigate
what it takes to make female-friendly change happen in the world of fashion, why it's important to recognise your 'power of the purse', and maybe even how to style brogues, specs, with a notice me headscarf so you'll never give yourself wrinkles over your wardrobe again.

Venue: ISH

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
