The exhibition itself is brilliant, and I cannot wait to run back for a second look to fully take it in. It explores the creative and artistic looks from one of fashion's most experimental periods, with pieces from the likes of Betty Jackson, Galliano, Vivienne Westwood and more. It traces the thread between London's Blitz Kids from the club scene, and how they influenced the designers of the decade. It also seeks to celebrate the likes of Adam Ant and Leigh Bowery with specific segments for New Romantic, Goth, High Camp and Rave as well as enabling the viewer to step back into Blitz in the form of a dark room with pumping music and multiple screens showing footage from "back in the day".
