As Seen in BLITZ: Fashioning ’80s Style

Blitz

As Seen in BLITZ: Fashioning '80s Style is a fascinating examination of early 1980s British post-punk avant garde fashion that's a real treat for postmodern enthusiasts. 


This new coffee table tome is written by former BLITZ magazine fashion editor Iain R Webb, who was at the front line of the rise of the Blitz kids and new romantics out of the ashes of punk. The book is packed with photographs & insight into cutting edge, subversive 80s style, examining the creativity & originality that was born in the period, looking at the likes of the inimitable Leigh Bowery & Boy George to future fashion heavyweights like John Galliano and Jean Paul Gaultier.
