Last month, the iconic V&A museum opened their Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980s exhibition.
The fashion exhibition area was brimming with iconic designers who were key to the decade. Statement snippets of Vivienne Westwood, Betty Jackson, Katherine Hamnett, John Galliano and Paul Smith amongst others were encased behind the glass panels on the ground floor. At this time, London style became defined as individual in its own right. Designer Georgina Godley described 80s London as “all about taking risks and creating something out of nothing through passion and ambition,” and this is evident through these designers and their creations.
The event will run until February 2014 with tickets costing just £5.00 so there’s plenty of time to check it out.
