British Fashion Designs from the 1980s

Sort by

These drawings are part of a collection of fabulous British fashion designs we have for sale, dating from the early 1980s, which are a fantastic record of their time. They are likely advertisement designs for retail such as a department store, or clothing catalogue, and – with their confident smiles, sharp tailoring and structured silhouettes – they epitomise the zeitgeist of the decade our contemporary society was born. They are images of confidence and aspiration, reflecting a society that, more than ever, was defined by owning things and buying things, by designer labels and High Street brand names.
