Louisa Rogers, founder of vintage studio Trendlistr.com and Fashion Communication lecturer at Northumbria University will be hosting this talk in association with Colour Collective UK.
Learn about the constantly evolving meaning of colour in fashion from 1859 to present day. We’ll explore the seminal moments and iconic designs one colour at a time.
We previously held this event in May 2018 and while the talk will be updated, you may not wish to attend if you came to the original event.
Louisa studied Fashion Photography & Styling at the London College of Fashion before moving on to a Creative Entrepreneurship MA at Newcastle University.
After winning a prestigious Founderships Grant she set up Trendlistr, an online destination for curated vintage clothing styled in modern, trend-led ways. She is a founding committee member of Colour Collective UK, a not-for-profit organisation that promotes colour education through multidisciplinary workshops and lectures.
Her interest in fashion history and theory has led her to deliver talks on the emergence of vintage fashion, fashion & subcultures and the significance of colour in 20th century clothing to a range of organisations.
She now lectures on Fashion Communication (Northumbria University) and Fashion Journalism/Designand Promotion (Sunderland University) as well as covering the Creative and Cultural industries for a postgraduate course at Newcastle University.
