Women in Work: A Fashion Panel Debate at Manchester Art Gallery, City Centre 13 October 2016 Entrance is free

Why are women still judged not simply by the quality of their work, but by what they wear? This panel debate, held in the Vogue 100 exhibition itself at Manchester Art Gallery, will bring together some of the biggest names in fashion journalism to tackle this very question. Led by Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, will be former Vogue writer (now fashion editor of the Financial Times) Jo Ellison, and editor-in-chief of Dazed & Confused Isabella Burley. Tickets are free, but booking is required here.
