Sexy, scummy, stylish, Soho has seen it all: spivs, mods, punks, club kids and just about every other tribe you can think of have colonised its streets. Which makes it the perfect sartorial subject for photographer and writer Nina Manandhar of celebrated blog ‘What We Wore’. Taking up residence at The Photographers’ Gallery with her mobile archive, she’ll collect, curate and exhibit photographs to reveal the scope of Soho’s fashion history. As part of her ‘What Soho Wore’ commission, Nina will be gathering personal images and stories (and hopefully plenty of snaps of the swinging ’60s). Londoners are invited to submit their own pictures of the area either online or by popping to the gallery in person on July 29, August 5 and 19, or September 2 and 9, so their images can become part of the archive.
