Curiously poptastic!

Pop! Design Culture Fashion at London’s Fashion and Textiles Museum is still showing (until 27th October).  Fashionholics are advised not to miss this exhibition featuring 300 items from the 1950s through to the 1970s.  Showcasing the impact of music, art and celebrity on fashion from rock ‘n’ roll to punk, there are vintage album covers, retro posters, popular consumer goods and, of course, stylish clothes and unique accessories from the likes of Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood. 

Some of ShopCurious’s favourites are the 1960s Mondrian style vinyl coat (above) and Harry Gordon’s disposable paper Eye Dress, below. 

I’m curious to know why wearing paper dresses never caught on - even in warm countries…
