The Language of Clothes: Visual Codes and Messages Mary Alexander Saturday 24 March 2018

The subject of this year’s Special Interest Day was on clothes and fashion through the ages for both men and women,.  Mary Alexander, an experienced art lecturer gave us three excellent lectures illustrated with images from works of art and of styles of fashions. Her in- depth knowledge inspired us to look on wearing of clothes and following fashions in a new way.
