“Blink” Events: British Design at the V&A, Fashion focus 1

There are so many great fashion moments in this British Design exhibition at the V&A, we have decided to dedicate two posts to the subject. Firstly we’ll have a look at iconic fashion photography and imagery from the exhibition. Featuring some amazing fashion photography from the likes of David Bailey and Terry O’Neill, through to the Westwood and McLaren ‘Seditionaries’ collaboration and iconic music videos like ‘Avalon’ from Roxy Music and stage costumes for David Bowie.
