Blitz: Fashioning '80s Style

Sold Out


In London at the start of the 1980s, three new style magazines emerged to define an era. It was a time of change: after Punk, before the digital age, and at the dawn of a hedonistic club scene that saw the birth of the New Romantics. On the pages of Blitz, The Face and i-D, a new breed of young iconoclasts hoped to inspire revolution. As Blitz magazine’s fashion editor from 1982-87, Iain R. Webb was at the centre of this world. His images manipulated fashion to explore ideas of transformation, beauty, glamour and sex. The magazine’s arresting, subversive fashion pages, and its profiles of disparate designers and creative types, let the imagination run free. Lavishly presented here are over 100 Blitz fashion stories, with unseen archive content, original images and tear-sheets. A separate section features original Blitz interviews with the key designers, and a vast amount of completely new material: Iain R. Webb’s memories.
