To mark the publication of Behind The Seams
To any self-respecting sewing fan, Esme Young needs no introduction. The diminutive judge of The Great British Sewing Bee has a sharp eye for a wonky seam, and an even sharper eye for a good necklace.
Now, join her in conversation with comedian Joe Lycett for this exclusive live event, as she shares the story of her life in creativity, friendship, and adventure. She’ll share how she discovered sewing aged 7, and how, as a teenager she made her way to London and Central St Martins, where her life truly began. From living in a squat with other young creatives and watching Notting Hill Carnival with David Bowie, to creating costumers for films such as Bridget Jones's Diary and The Beach and becoming a star of the small screen herself, this is truly a celebration of a creative life lived differently.
Don’t miss the opportunity to spend an evening with a renowned English fashion designer as she reminds us that never too early, too late, or too soon to pick up a needle and start stitching in a new direction.
