Counterculture Fashion in the Pink Floyd era
Tue 9 May 2017, 09:45 – 12:00 BST
Taking the V&A’s exhibition Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains as the starting point, fashion historian Amber Butchart looks at the close relationship between countercultural music, style and politics in the 1960s and 70s.
Looking at various subcultural movements of the post-war era, Amber tracks the styles of the street and stage that became catwalk staples, considering ‘resistance’ in dress, the ‘peacock revolution’, new modes of shopping, and the long legacy of subculture and street style that has formed an invaluable backstory to the fashion industry of today.
Morning event with coffee and pastries.
