  • Author: Amber Butchart is a fashion historian, author and broadcaster who specialises in the historical intersections between dress, politics and culture. She researches and presents documentaries including A Stitch in Time, a six-part series on BBC Four that fused biography, art and the history of fashion to explore the lives of historical figures through the clothes they wore. It was described as “snappy and engaging” by The Guardian, “hugely enjoyable” by The Telegraph and “mesmerising” by the Radio Times. Her two-part documentary for BBC Radio 4 tracked the rise of vintage clothing and the global ramifications of secondhand style. Amber’s work also investigates the crossover of fashion and forensics. She is Lead Consultant in Forensic Garment Analysis with Alecto Forensics, working on cases that require examination and investigation of clothing and textiles. You can find her on the expert database of the National Crime Agency. She is a former Research Fellow at the University of the Arts London, and is a regular public lecturer across the UK’s leading arts institutions. She has written for The Guardian, Times Literary Supplement, Financial Times, Icon, ArtReview and BBC Culture. She is a regular contributor to Frieze, writing on the politics of dress and design.
