“Blink” Events: British Design at the V&A, Fashion focus 2

Friday, April 6th, 2012

On to part 2 of our look at the amazing and iconic fashion moments featured in the V&A’s British Design exhibition. Here we look at some of the most well known British design names from the 60′s and 70′s as well as the designer’s that are very much still in full creative flow today. I personally have a very soft spot for anything by Ozzie Clark and Celia Birtwell, so we’ll start there…
