Keynote Lecture: Zowie Broach – Thinking Material Practice

13th March 2017

Zowie Broach RCA LDoc Keynote Lecture

Design thinking necessarily leads to moments of collaboration, collision and opinion. Design thinking is discursive and challenging.


This term’s keynote lecturer is designer and head of fashion at the Royal College of Art Zowie Broach, co-founder of Boudicca. Broach takes fashion design as a mode of enquiry, offering a way of thinking which re-defines, deconstructs, examines and atomises fashion and identity. In this she suggests material practice as a vibrant research methodology for design that sets materiality and technology together in collaborative partnership.


The lecture will take place in the Senior Common Room and is open to all LDoc students and supervisors. Reserve your place by emailing
