111. FASHION CITY: HOW JEWISH LONDONERS SHAPED GLOBAL STYLE
Bethan Bide, Lucie Whitmore

While Jewish people have long been associated with making clothes, the full extent of the contributions they made to London’s growing reputation as a global fashion capital have been widely forgotten. Lucie Whitmore and Bethan Bide, lead curator and academic advisor of the current Museum of London Docklands exhibition Fashion City: How Jewish Londoners Shaped Global Style, go on a journey across London, from the busy clothing factories of the East End to the swinging boutiques of Carnaby Street and the manicured squares of Mayfair, along the way meeting the fashion makers who became leaders in their industries, founded retail chains still on the high street today, and dressed the rich and famous – including David Bowie, Princess Diana and Mick Jagger.
