Our speaker for The Link: Fashion Special is Lydia Higginson. Last year she started a project called Made My Wardrobe. She decided to make her entire wardrobe from scratch and give away all the clothes she had ever bought from shops. Lydia now only owns and wears clothes she has designed and made. 

In this talk Lydia will explore what she has learnt since starting her own business and becoming and full time designer. She will give us a few pointers on how to use blogging and social media, in particular Instagram, to share your creativity and how that can open doors to exciting and unexpected places.
