POP! Exhibition comes to the Fashion & Textile Museum

The Fashion & Textile Museum will play host to a new exhibition, entitled POP! DESIGN • CULTURE • FASHION this summer from July 6th to October 27th.

The exhibition showcases the influence of Pop culture on several design mediums from 1955 to 1976, including record covers and packaging by Pop artists such as Andy Warhol and the work of fashion designers like Mary Quant, Vivienne Westwood, John Stephen and Betsey Johnson.

Throughout, furniture, original posters, graphics and promotional materials will help to set the scene.

The exhibition will also highlight the casual throwaway nature of much Pop design, from the paper furniture and Union Jack clothing of ‘Swinging London’ to the late 1960s American fascination for paper dresses.

I can't wait to see the show after recently enjoying the Seventies exhibition at Leeds Museum and being able to attend more things like this is another reason why I am moving to London. 

If anyone has any suggestions for exhibitions and galleries to visit when I get down there I would love to hear them! But in the meantime I have included a few sneak peaks at what the exhibition will have to offer below..
