Beca Lipscombe and Mairi MacKenzie look at the life and work of Steven Campbell, considering what it means to dress for the life you want rather than dress for the life you have. They will reflect upon Campbell’s depiction of textiles and clothing as well as his personal wardrobe in order to recount their own aspirations growing up in Scotland and the routes they took in an attempt to develop a vernacular panache.

Beca Lipscombe is a fashion and textile designer and one half of Atelier E.B. Mairi MacKenzie is a fashion historian and Research Fellow in Fashion and Textiles at Glasgow School of Art.
