Streetstyle: From Teddy Boys to Grime Kids an exhibition explores the evolution of subcultures through a contemporary lens. Presenting a journey, through a range of media, the exhibition explores subcultural style and the underground scenes that have shaped wider culture. Curated by London College of Fashion alumna Tory Turk (MA Fashion Curation) the new exhibition will explore some of the ground breaking curatorial methods used in the original exhibition and will reimagine them 25 years on using Grime as a modern-day equivalent. 

Hosted in east London, the birth place of Grime, the exhibition will feature rare content from personal archives including notes from the original exhibition’s Skinheads display, Zandra Rhodes’ Conceptual Chic collection (1977) and Fiona Cartledge’s Sign of the Times archive, as well as exclusive visuals which capture the essence of Grime.

Focusing on the alternative dressing of subcultures, from punk to B-Boys, Streetstyle, From Sidewalk to Catwalk which opened in 1994 at the V&A, signified the first exhibition of its kind celebrating the style tribes who challenged the status quo and changed the face of fashion.
