Earlier this month I spent a splendid day with textile friend Donna Jones viewing the 80’s fashion retrospective show called Club to Catwalk. We also took in the lovely the pearl show. Seeing two in one day kept us on our toes.
The fashion show was amazing to see. It continues until February 16th. The use of beautiful textiles alongside rather amazing chains, feather spiky hats and color combinations was a site to see. We gaped at the everyday outfit that a KISS band member wore complete with cod piece. In the write up he said that he couldn’t understand why everyone looked so shocked when he wore it out to the grocery store.
The 80’s fashions are popular again at present which shows that there is nothing really new in the art world. We just borrow from the past.
