Very chuffed to see this online on a beautiful website called Uplift Magazine, just like I was, to see my blown-up poster next to some very inspirational ladies at the amazing Between the covers exhibition:
One of the things I loved about the exhibition was the ‘Hall of Fame’ of female magazine editors from past and present. Katharine Whitehorn, Louise Chunn, Linda Kelsey, Claire Rayner, Ashanti Omkar and Sue O’Sullivan are all there, in all their hugely blown-up photographed glory. The photographs are accompanied by a set of audio interviews by Judith Palmer, which give visitors the opportunity to hear insiders’ views of magazine production. I’m not sure where else you might find such a wall of great women, and it was certainly refreshing to see these influential creatives being given the respect and admiration they deserve.
‘Between The Covers’ is free to enter and runs until the 29th of August 2009. The woman’s library is near Aldgate East station, London.
You can also catch me on a panel discussion called Black in fashion: Have we turned the page? on Wednesday 13 May, 7pm (90 mins)
