In 80s Fashion, the V&A explores one of the most diverse and exciting periods in fashion history, showcasing the work of some of the decade’s leading designers, including Vivienne Westwood, Fiorucci, Leigh Bowery, Bodymap, Rifat Ozbek, and many others. Exploring the decade’s extraordinarily creative exchange between fashion and music, this extensively illustrated book shows how fashions seen on trendsetters in the clubs of the period were interpreted for a wider audience through the striking photography and innovative graphic design of key magazines such as The Face and i-D. Casting new light on the designs of the decade, 80s Fashion includes interviews and previously unseen original material from designers’ archives.
