The AHRC-funded 'Tailored Trades' network is coordinated by Nicole Robertson (Northumbria University) and Vike Plock (University of Exeter). It involves a series of linked workshops and public events, investigating the significance of clothes and costumes in the development of professional communities. Partners include the Bishopsgate Institute (London) and the People’s History Museum (Manchester). The network conference will take place on 12-13 September at the Bishopsgate Institute. You can find further information about the network via the project website.
