Antonia joined Blenheim Palace in 2008 as a member of the Education Team later becoming the Palace's Social Historian and Researcher. Both roles have involved her curating a number of exhibitions at Blenheim Palace including the highly successful `Passion for Fashion' upon which this book is based.
Antonia greatly enjoys public speaking and has delivered a `Conversation' at Cumberland Lodge, Windsor and been In Conversation with fashion editor, Caroline Issa. She was also a guest on Radio 4's Saturday Live with the Reverend Richard Coles and Aasmah Mir and has appeared on BBC's Country File and Channel 4's Phil Spencer's Stately Homes.
