To coincide with the release of the film Control, the Agnes B shop in Covent Garden is now hosting an exhibition of photographs of Joy Division. The exhibition features around 40 images taken by Pierre Rene-Worms on 18 December 1979.
Agnes B sees herself as more than just a fashion designer – she places equal importance on her patronage of the arts, cinema and publisher, and uses her shops worldwide to bring these interests to a wider audience. The Joy Division exhibition is just one in a series of similar in-store happenings. It certainly adds something extra to the shopping experience – I just wish her clothes were a little bit cheaper.
Joy Division can be seen at the Agnes B store, 35/36 Floral Street, Covent Garden until 24th October.
