In Conversation

A V&A power conversation between Oriole Cullen – Curator of the V&A’s current sell-out exhibition Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto – and Leonie Bell, Director of V&A Dundee – about Chanel’s love affair with textiles in Scotland and the borders. V&A Dundee’s current exhibition, Tartan, features a couture piece by Chanel in that typically Scottish fabric, and her iconic suits gave some inimitable French style to British tweed.
