Dressed for War

Thursday 1 October, 2:00pm-3:00pm
Fowey Town Hall

Dressed for War tells the story of Audrey Withers, editor of British Vogue from 1940-1960. Now almost completely unknown, Withers was described in 1943 by the President of the Board of Trade as the most powerful woman in London. A towering intellect with a genius for editing, an eagle eye for good design and the courage to take on some of the biggest personalities in mid-20th century fashion, Audrey Withers was also kind and generous. We are delighted to invite back to the Festival author and historian, Julie Summers, who through her latest book, shines a spotlight on this forgotten feminist heroine.
