The exhibition highlights the London club scene –

nightspots of fashion on parade

which fuelled the creative energy of

the emerging fashion talents of the decade.

Art students flocked to these vibrant venues,

inspired by music heard and dress observed.

They challenged previous fashion sensibilities and

in turn contributed significantly to the rise of

London as a leading fashion capital.

Creations by John Galliano, Betty Jackson, Wendy Dagworthy,

Katherine Hamnett and Stephen Jones, among others are featured.
