At 6.00 guest speaker Patricia Frost will talk about her life and career as the Director of the Fashion & Textiles Department at Christie’s.
For nearly 30 years Patricia Frost worked for Christie’s, the auctioneers, latterly as their director of Fashion & Textiles.
Patricia was lucky to start as administrator in the Textile Department where she learned something every day by cataloguing. There were many firsts, including the first dedicated Asian & Islamic Textile sales and the inaugural Street Fashion sale.
Fashion was always an interest of Patricia’s and she was delighted to have been in charge of cataloguing the Elizabeth Taylor, Daphne Guinness, Suzy Menkes and Elsa Schiaparelli collections. Over the years, she has grown to love couture and the wonderful stories it brings.
In January 2015, she began a new phase of her career as an independent advisor and consultant on Fashion & Textiles and she continues to work for Christie’s as a consultant.
Along with one of the last opportunities to see Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal and then enjoy explore the rest of the Museum finishing with delicious food and drink in Café Bowes (last food orders 8.45, last drinks orders 9.30) this is a night not to be missed.
