11 Jul

Holy moly these exhibitions are going straight into my diary! Hope you are inspired to do the same!

POP! Design Culture Fashion
The Fashion and Textile Museum, London


‘In the 1950s a new wave of rock-n-roll and youth culture from America swept the country and the world. The mix of popular images and music with art and fashion would change the way people dressed – blurring the boundaries of commerce, culture and style.

POP! will explore the impact of music, art and personality on the development of the fashion of the times. From the poodle skirts and embellished leathers of the rockers through to the Punk era, this exhibition will take in the cool stylings of the Mods, the high baroque of Psychedelia and the kitsch glamour of 70s retro by designers such as Mr Freedom and Miss Mouse.’

Exhibition Dates: 6 Jul – 27 Oct 2012

Ticket Price:
£7 for adults
£5 for students and concessions
