Posted: Tue Nov 13 2012
The V&A summer blockbuster for 2013 homes in on the 1980s, one of the most bonkers decades in fashion history. It was an era when experimentation and appropriation was rife and music and club culture had a massive influence on mainstream fashion, as well as haute couture. 'From Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 80s' will reflect this, showing work by designers including Katharine Hamnett, Betty Jackson, John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood and highlighting the way magazines such as i-D and Blitz reflected an emerging theatricality in fashion.
