The word ‘luxury’ is ubiquitous in contemporary society, describing everything from handbags to holidays, but what does it actually mean? Is our luxury obsession a new one, or has it always been with us? Join Dr Nadia Buick, fashion curator and co-director of The Fashion Archives as she discusses luxury fashion culture with an esteemed panel of experts.

Presented in conjunction with the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane 2014.
