Pop. Design. Culture. Fashion

Pop. Design. Culture. Fashion

Lifestyle Reporter: Amy Everett

London’s Fashion and Textile Museum is celebrating the impact of music, art and celebrity on 20th-century fashion, from Rock ‘n’ Roll to Punk and Glamrock. From cool Mod styling to the kitsch glamour of 1970’s retro, this exhibition celebrates the moment when British popular culture set the world on fire.

The art of textile design radically changed after the Second World War, as a new wave of rock-n-roll youth culture swept the country. The boundaries of commerce, culture and style were blurred forever as music and art began to influence clothing styles, from the slashed rebellion of Punk to the first ever miniskirts.

Highlights of the exhibition include original pop-art fashions by Mary Quant, purple flares worn by Donovan, items from Elton John’s personal wardrobe and original pieces from Westwood and McLaren’s Sex collection.

The exhibition runs from 6th July to 27th October 2012. For more information, visit Ftmlondon.org
