Jeweller’s work to form part of 1980s London fashion exhibition.
Jewellery created by stylist Judy Blame will go on display at the V&A Museum in London as part of a exhibition celebrating fashion in the 1980s.
The exhibition will be called Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980s and Blame’s jewellery has been chosen as part of the exhibit to show the importance of do-it-yourself customisation and re-appropriation of objects in that era.
Blame’s jewellery was iconic of the time. The designer, who is based in London, first rose to fame as one of the Buffalo Boys, a tribe of fashionistas led by photographer Ray Petri. He then went on to become a stylist for the likes of Boy George and Björk, played a key role in shaping I-D magazine and more recently has worked with fashion designers Gareth Pugh and Louise Gray.
The exhibition will open in summer 2013 and will feature more than 85 outfits created by iconic designers of the time including Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano and Katherine Hamnett curated in a way to show the impact of underground club culture on the fashion world.
