Fashion historian Amber Butchart and broadcaster Clara Amfo delve into the history of clothes, from the surprisingly form-fitting fashions of the Middle Ages, to the subtly rebellious sartorial choices that accompanied the American civil rights movement. Drawing heavily from both historical and literary sources, Amber and Clara dig deep into the social significance of fashion while also exploring the legacy it’s left us, from rules that still regulate dress around gender and class today, to its impact on feminism, politics, and the environment.
