Burberry - Local Draper to International Fashion Brand

 

Our series of ‘Local History Hour’ talks bring together a variety of speakers from the local history world. This month we focus on the changing world of the draper in the 19th century and how the trade was affected by consumer demand, advances in technology, the increasing availability of mass-produced and branded clothing, retail chains and department stores. Where does Thomas Burberry fit into this wider world of drapery? How unusual was he?
