A celebration of a creative life lived differently, Behind the Seams is a reminder that it's never too early, or too late to pick up a needle and start stitching in a new direction.
Esme Young tells her life story, through anecdotes, pictures from her past, images of her fashion creations and video clips of The Great British Sewing Bee, and the fashion shows created for her clothing line Swanky Modes.
She explains how collaborations and friendships throughout her career have led to new opportunities and talks about some of the celebrities she has run across along the way.
Always willing to try something new, Esme tells us how a life in fashion led to a new opportunity and a new career as a judge on the Sewing Bee. “Go on television at 70? Sure why not?”
Esme’s talk brings her book to life.
