A new show at the V&A, Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980s, celebrates the ’80s clubbing scene in London and examines how club wear translated to the fashion world.

This merging of club, street and catwalk fashion was helped by London’s excellent fashion design colleges and the start of a London Fashion Week in 1984, bringing the industry together.
