Fashion Media and Imagery Research Hub presents Djurdja Bartlett, London College of Fashion in Conversation with Penny Martin, Editor of The Gentlewoman.
The London-based editor Penny Martin works at the forefront of modern fashion media, developing and executing award-winning printed, curatorial and digital projects. She is editor in chief of The Gentlewoman, which she helped launch in 2010, before which she was editor in chief of the pioneering online fashion website SHOWstudio for seven years. Between editing these two different but equally revolutionary media platforms, Penny was Professor of Fashion Imagery at the London College of Fashion. During her three years at the college, she curated two major exhibitions: “When You’re a Boy: Men’s Fashion Styled by Simon Foxton” at The Photographers’ Gallery and “SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution” at Somerset House.
Join us to discuss the past, present and future of fashion and the politics of its representations.
