As Seen in BLITZ – Fashioning ‘80’s Style

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Former BLITZ Fashion Editor Iain R.Webb has compiled a new book entitled 'As Seen in BLITZ – Fashioning ‘80’s Style' which showcases shoots and articles from the iconic fashion and culture magazine of the 1980’s.

Alongside interviews with BLITZ founders Simon Tesler and Carey Labovitch, the book includes In Conversation interviews with designers such as Jasper Conran, Vivienne Westwood and Katharine Hamnett. Jasper’s interview was published in April 1987, a season after he was awarded British Designer of the Year.

The book also features Jasper’s comments on his collaboration for the ‘Blitz Denim Jacket Project ‘ and editorial coverage of his designs.

A mens black leather Jasper Conran, jacket from Iain R Webb and a black Jasper Conran dress, on loan from Lady Sarah Chatto, are currently on display at the V&A as part of Club to Catwalk: London Fashion In The 1980’s
