Reader spotlight: Lucy Tammam's designs at the Baftas and LFW
I've often seen British Library collection items and thought, I'd wear a dress with that pattern on it. Then I dream of all the designers I would ask to make that dress for me. Lucy Tammam is one of these designers.
Lucy specialises in hand-crafted ethically sourced bridal and evening wear. Last night at the Baftas, Nat Luurtsema (nominated for her short film Island Queen) wore a Tammam white silk crepe lace gown. Check out the Twitter reactions - they're hot! Lucy designs have also been showcased at London, Paris and New York Fashion weeks. Rising star Eleanor Tomlinson was spotted wearing a Tammam coat at LFW this weekend.
Lucy has used the British Library for both inspiration and business support. Hear her story below as part of our Made with the British Library video project spotlighting how people are using the Library to create something new.
