I was invited to the press opening of Club To Catwalk this week. If you fancy an hour of digestible street culture history, then I can recommend this exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
This is not a dense, intense, cerebral gallery show packed with anything more avant-garde than a well-curated edit of the most relevant designer pieces from yesteryear. For an easy to learn lesson in British club culture: the exchange of ideas between music, art, clubbing and fashion, as well evidence of the St Martins meets Blitz roots of many of our greatest designers, this ticks all the boxes.
