Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 80’s

The Victoria and Albert great museum of art & design holds over 3000 years worth of artifacts from many of the world’s richest cultures, including the most comprehensive collection of British design & art from 1500 to 1900. There’s furniture, ceramics, photography, sculpture, and much more.

They are currently showing the creative explosion of London fashion in the 1980s and the impact of the underground club scene that transformed fashion worldwide. If you are wondering on what to do in London and you are fascinated by the 80’s fashion, V&A is definitely a place to head for inspiration. Below are some of the pictures but don’t hold back, these collections spans across two floors, there is more to see in the museum than what you see here.
