How do we feel about the clothes we wear?

What do clothes mean to women? Is it how they make us feel, or how they look? Why do we hang onto things way beyond their sell by date? Why do some of us find it so hard to audit our wardrobes? To discuss the significance of clothes in women’s lives, Jenni is joined by Justine Picardie, author of 'My Mother's Wedding Dress: The Life and Afterlife of Clothes'; Jay Hunt, style writer and broadcaster and Oriole Cullen, the curator of fashion and textiles at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
