A discussion on the history of beards

Beards are part of contemporary fashion and style, yet have been used throughout history to portray a sense of nobility, style and significance in society. This event will feature hair stylist, Joshua Gibson (Sassoon), and fashion historian, Caroline Cox, in conversation about beards throughout the period of the Weimar Republic, and their recent resurgence into popular culture.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to postpone this event. More information on the reschedule will be made available soon.
