Stylist and former mod Roger K. Burton presents a fascinating evening talk, Rebel Threads: Clothing of the Bad, Beautiful & Misunderstood.
Learn how distinct street punk styles were originally put together and worn by the predominant teenage sub-cultures that emerged between 1940 and 1980 and set these kids apart from mainstream fashion. Scheduled to coincide with the exhibition T-Shirt: Cult – Culture – Subversion, this talk will examine the role of fashion within key social, musical and political movements, through Burton’s extensive archive of over twenty thousand items.

Featuring exciting images of rare vintage clothing from the swing, counterculture and blank generation eras, this event is a must for all lovers of vintage clothing, collectors, fashion students, designers, costumiers and anyone fascinated by the history of street style.

Roger K. Burton: With 50 years’ experience collecting vintage street fashion, costume designer, stylist and former mod, Burton supplied original mod clothing for the 1978 cult film Quadrophenia, before establishing the Contemporary Wardrobe Collection to provide street fashion for TV and Film. He went on to dress literally hundreds of influential bands, from David Bowie to the Rolling Stones.

Rebel Threads: Clothing of the Bad, Beautiful & Misunderstood, published by Laurence King, October 2017, £35.00.
