The Measure is a unique publication that offers a fascinating insight into the thoughts and working lives of an eclectic and prolific cross-section of fashion and design practitioners, academics and historians, commissioned by the London College of Fashion during its centenary year. Contributors were invited to share their experiences of working in London in a series of more than eighty articles, interviews and comments. New and original content from fashion luminaries sheds light on their genre and celebrates the amazingly diverse nature of their work and expertise, accompanied by visuals and original photoshoots from their personal archives. The eclectic nature of submissions both in terms of content and approach, size and accent, mimic the very place of which they speak: a cacophony of voices, some still students when the pieces were written; some industry leaders at the pinnacle of their careers but all with the same passion for place, celebrating the effect the capital has had upon their work.
