An opportunity to get your glad rags on! During this talk we'll be looking back at what the people of Edinburgh and the Lothians, have chosen to wear over the decades; following fads & fashions from the past and how we dressed to impress in the city. We'll look at where people shopped for their clothing, whether buying traditional tartan, a Victorian corset on Princes Street, teen garb in Leith or flared denim on 1970s Cockburn Street.

With our good friends in Scran. Jackie Sangster is a Learning Manager at Historic Environment Scotland who works with archival records including
