An Introduction to Handbags with Anne Haworth – The ZOOM VERSION

19 October, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


Many of you will remember our disappointment when our planned visit to the V&A Handbag Exhibit was a victim of the early lockdown last year. While it remains problematic to visit the museum as a group, we can however still welcome lecturer Anne Haworth to give us her usual excellent summary of the handbags brought together for this landmark show. Then armed with this insight, please feel free to book individual tickets to see the handbags up close and personal.

From daytime classics to evening bejewelled pouches, canvas totes to Vuitton luggage, Bags:Inside Out explores the style, function and craftsmanship of the ultimate accessory. A wise woman was quoted “Handbags Speak Louder than Words.”  Nothing says more about its owner than what is inside a handbag. This lecture will inform you about what it takes to design the bags we love.

“A woman’s mind is as complex as the contents of her handbag. Even when you get to the bottom of it, there is ALWAYS something there to surprise you.” Billy Connelly
