Tom Dixon on British design, Miss Jason in Liverpool, Fashion Revolution, Design Museums at 30

Tom Dixon on British design, Miss Jason, Fashion Revolution's new wall planner, and the directors of two of the world's first Design Museums discuss developments in design.

Last night Tom Dixon was presented with the prestigious London Design Medal 2019. He joins Mary to discuss British design, how TouchyFeelySmellyNoisyTasty - the new multi-sensory lab he's created for the London Design Festival - explores the roots of good design, and why pairing a restaurant with a furniture showroom is a match made in design heaven.

Miss Jason, Mary Portas: On Style's fashion correspondent, is in Liverpool checking out people's personal style and, as we reach the midpoint of Second Hand September, he'll be asking the people he meets about their attitude to second hand shopping.

Carry Somers, co-founder and Global Operations Director of campaigning organisation Fashion Revolution discusses their new wall planner, and the power of fashion activism.

In 1989 two of the world's first Design Museums - the Design Museum in London and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil Am Rhein opened their doors for the first time. Three decades on, their respective Directors, Deyan Sudjic and Mateo Kries discuss how perceptions of what design can be have evolved in the last 30 years.
