BIID members are invited on an exclusive private view of the Fashion and Textile Museums fantastic new exhibition ‘Swinging London: A Lifestyle Revolution’. Access the gallery after-hours for a glass of fizz and 45-minute tour led by assistant curator Teresa Collenette.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Swinging London: A Lifestyle Revolution presents the fashion, design and art of the Chelsea Set; a group of radical young architects, designers, photographers and artists who were redefining the concept of youth and challenging the established order in 1950s London. At the forefront of this group of young revolutionaries were Mary Quant and Terence Conran.
Swinging London: A Lifestyle Revolution spans the period from 1952 – 1977 and features fashion, textiles, furniture, lighting, homewares, ceramics and ephemera in an exhibition that explores not only the style but the socioeconomic importance of this transformative era.
Key pieces include rare and early examples of designs by Conran and Quant, plus the avant-garde artists, designers and intellectuals who worked alongside them, such as designers Bernard and Laura Ashley, sculptor Eduardo Paolozzi and artist and photographer Nigel Henderson
