6 – 7:30 pm, Metcalf Auditorium, Chace Center

Guy Hills and Kirsty McDougall, founders of the London-based design firm Dashing Tweeds, present a lively conversation of their work as an innovative textile design studio and contemporary menswear company. Dashing Tweeds has created a range of tweeds, clothing, and accessories for the 21st century—some of which can be seen in Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion—and have collaborated with a diverse range of partners—including Converse, Billionaire Boys Club, Alexander McQueen, and Tom Ford.
