This is the first monograph on this influential designer whose business practices and creative output were highly innovative. The book comprises a facsimile and critical analysis of an album of hand-painted designs, each with multiple swatches of original fabrics and trimmings attached, for Lucile’s Autumn 1905 collection. The album was situated using primary source material (documents and images) from the V&A’s Lucile Archive. I wrote chapters on ‘The Making, Meaning and Biography of the Album’; a comparative analysis of a surviving gown from Autumn 1905 and its depiction within the Album and documented the period 1914 to 1935

Fashion in the context of the museum
I am writing a book, with LCF colleague Judith Clark, on the discipline of curating fashion for Yale University Press. As a trained dress historian and museum curator I will explore history and current practice and Judith, as a qualified architect and exhibition-maker, will focus upon design and installation issues. It centres around the 1971 Cecil Beaton exhibition at the V&A. To be published 1912.
With Valerie D. Mendes, I am writing a book about the archive of the House of Worth, which is housed at the Victoria & Albert Museum. It contains evidence about the couture house’s later, and lesser known, history from the 1890s through to the 1950s and its recent revival.
I would like to develop another curatorial project, possibly on fashion in the Edwardian era.
