Queen of grunge fashion Anna Sui; Caroline Lucas, co-leader of the Green Party
Queen of grunge fashion Anna Sui talks about her new exhibition. Caroline Lucas co-leader of the Green Party. And the emotional impact of failed IVF.
Anna Sui is a name synonymous with the grunge look in the 90's. She remains one of the world leading fashion designers with her unmistakably eclectic rock and roll glamour. She has dressed everyone from Madonna to Kate Moss. She the first living American fashion designer to be celebrated in a retrospective exhibition in the UK. Milly Chowles went along to London's Fashion and Textile Museum to talks to her about her unique style and how it all began.
In the third of our Leader interviews ahead of the General Election next Thursday, Caroline Lucas Co-leader of The Green Party talks about her party's manifesto offer.
Sally Rooney discusses her debut novel Conversations With Friends. Excited publishers are describing it as 'Salinger for the snap chat generation'. The book focuses on two 21 year old friends and former lovers Frances and Bobbi, and the relationship they strike up with a glamorous older couple.
At the age of thirty eight, Australian novelist Julia Leigh made her first visit to an IVF clinic with her then partner, full of optimism. Her memoir "Avalanche" documents the six years that follow-on from that visit - the break-down of her relationship, and her fraught and ultimately failed journey through six rounds of IVF alone. She talks to Jenni about her experience, the IVF industry, and why she, as a writer of fiction, felt compelled on this occasion to document her own life.
