Faith And Fashion: Dress, Politics + Belonging Post-Brexit

An invigorating look at the future of fashion with Asia House

Professor Reina Lewis of LCF brings Faith And Fashion to Asia House to discuss the heightened political significance of the religiously dressed body in post-Brexit Britain and beyond. Exploring the importance of appearance in debates about race, ethnicity, migration, religion, and national belonging will be: Jacqueline Nicholls, Jewish educator, internationally exhibited artist, and regular contributor to BBC Radio 2's Pause For Thought; James Welch, legal director of Liberty; Ruth Yimika Awogbade, founder and editor of Magnify magazine, described by The Huffington Post as ‘the Christian women’s magazine breaking every stereotype’; and Elif Shafak, political columnist and bestselling author of award-winning titles such as The Bastard Of Istanbul and Honour. LCF’s collaboration with Asia House thinks constructively about how the UK will move into a new set of relationships with the EU and Europe, and therefore with Asia and the rest of the world. Come along and help evaluate the opportunities and challenges for those concerned with the cultural politics of dress. Doors open: 6:30pm. Panel discussion: 6:45pm-8pm. Reception: 8pm-9pm. Please note: proof of membership must be provided for those purchasing staff or student tickets.
