Guest Speaker: Victoria Stapleton, Founder & Creative director of BRORA

“I’ve always been a fan of linen, a fabric that has been part of my life for as long as I can remember – a brilliant choice for both interiors and fashion. I love the softness, the way it holds colour, the weaves, the drape, and the way it just gets more beautiful with age. The fact that it is also the most environmentally friendly choice is such an added bonus.”

In our series exploring fibres and their sustainability, Victoria Stapleton, will share her design knowledge about using European flax-linen fabrics.

Linen plays a major part in British brand Brora’s collection, aligning with its ethos to create beautiful, timeless clothing using natural fibres designed to last a lifetime. Victoria will be joined by Brora’s senior designer Frances O’Leary, in discussion with fashion consultant Gill Gledhill. In celebration of the brand’s 30th anniversary, they will explore how and why they use linen in the Brora collection and what it means to the customer and to the planet.
