For our 2021 Autumn Conference the London College of Garden Design explores the influence of plants, gardens and landscapes on fashion and the favour that fashion returns to our work as gardeners, horticulturists, and designers.

For centuries plants and gardens have clearly been influential on fashion sensibility. The fashion industry’s most lauded designers from Hardy Amies, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior to Dries Van Noten, Vivienne Westwood and Raf Simons are known for recurrent themes around flora and gardens and the influence of their own gardens on their work.

The Conference will hear from leading fashion professionals and academics including Amy de la Haye, Professor of Dress History and Fashion Curation and joint Director of the Centre for Fashion Curation at London College of Fashion; Justine Picardie, a contributing editor to Harper’s Bazaar and author of the soon to be published Miss Dior: A Story of Courage and Couture and Hairdressing legend Sam McKnight in conversation with award-winning garden designer Jo Thompson.
