Tune in at 18:30 GMT for the Gareth Pugh live panel discussion on Wednesday 27 February 2013.
We welcome back Lou Stoppard as chairwoman, who has recently returned from her coverage of Milan Fashion Week. Stoppard will be joined by a host of industry experts including head of digital at Matthew Williamson Rosanna Falconer, fashion editor at Vice UK Daryoush Haj-Najafi, fashion commentator Caryn Franklin and renowned curator Sir Norman Rosenthal.
Last season saw Pugh create a highly-praised interpretation of a mourning Spanish mistress. During our exclusive re-see with Stoppard, the designer expressed his difficulty in working with two-dimensional, traditional fashion media. He says: 'It’s very frustrating because you lose [details of the garments] but how else do you communicate your ideas? There is a whole kind of mechanism around how fashion works and people are very resistant...they don’t want anyone rocking the boat. I can try and push against that as much as I can, but when it comes down to it, there’s this very definite system and hierarchy about how to do things'.
