Can fashion be defined as a repetitive cycle?
We might be able to argue with this theory, however the Victoria & Albert Museum in London clearly states yes bringing together iconic designers and unforgettable looks from the eighties. We can’t help it thinking about John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood when we say eighties style. Indeed, 85 outfits by the most influential designers including Westwood and Galliano will showcased during the exhibition, with an entire floor reserved to designers who created unique pieces inspired by London’s nightlife, while at the mezzanine you will be able to contemplate the clubbing outfits worn back then divided into different categories: from Goth to New Romantics!
Satisfying everyone’s tastes and curiosities the exhibition aims to concentrate on the powerful impact the eighties London nightlife and clubs had on the fashion world locally and internationally!
Whether you have been part of the 80’s party wave or whether you have heard so many stories, summer 2013 will definitely be a great way to commemorate or see for yourselves what the eighties actually felt like. So put on your double decker’s shoes, your black leather biker jacket and get ready for an ultimate experience starting July 10th at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
