Streetstyle: 1994-Now

An interrogation of the presentation of subcultural fashions in fashion exhibitions since the seminal V&A Museum exhibition of 1994-5, Streetstyle: from sidewalk to catwalk. Professor Amy de la Haye, along with colleagues who worked on the exhibition, will explore the evolution and staging of the exhibition and its impact upon fashion curation. Guest speakers will explore subcultural dress from curatorial perspectives, image-making, identity and representation, and historical and contemporary presentations of subcultures.

The symposium is part of a series of events exploring subcultures at the London College of Fashion, including an event on 31 October (Subcultures and their Mediated Representations), and an exhibition analysing the curation of subcultures (Streetstyle: from Teddy Boys to Grime Kids, Curating Subcultures Today) at the Trinity Art Gallery in East London (15 Nov – 07 Dec).
