The Centre for Fashion Curation recently went on an outing to Dennis Severs’ house in Spitalfields. Claire Wilcox responds:
I had last been to 18 Folgate Street in 1985 when I was at college with the potter Simon Pettet. Simon talked a lot about the house, where he was living, and urged me to go on one of Dennis’s tours. Stepping through the threshold was like stepping back in time, but it was also clear that this was a piece of theatre.
