Esme Young Behind the Seams

Crowne Plaza Hotel

The leading judge on the blockbuster TV success story The Great British Sewing Bee shares her fascinating story of the power of creativity. Aged seven, when it was discovered she was partially deaf, she found refuge in sketchbooks and, after making her first garment, a passion for sewing and designing was born. She’ll describe her creative journey from Central Saint Martins to launching the clothing line Swanky Modes with three friends and fifty quid, watching the Notting Hill Carnival with David Bowie and altering a dress for Cher, followed by a career move into costumes for films, designing for Trainspotting and Bridget Jones’s Diary. A must for anyone who loves fashion and creativity.
