Join Djurdja Bartlett, author and research fellow at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, as she discusses her new book, FashionEast: The Spectre That Haunted Socialism, which explores the rich history of fashion under communism in the 20th century. Bartlett examined more than 70 years of fashion in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe to create this fascinating study. Her current research, funded by the British Academy, is on the relationship of East European to Western fashion throughout the 20th and up to today. A book signing will follow.
