Sampling the Seventies

Highlighted the decade in which flower power, ethnic, romantic revival, rich peasant and the hippie trail took the fashion industry by storm. It was a time that encouraged mainstream fashion to get dressed up in a big way. This new exhibition features Ossie Clark, Thea Porter, Bill Gibb, John Bates, David Sassoon, Gina Fratini, and Jean Muir who built world-class careers based on idiosyncratic, decoratively youthful creative vision. Also featured is FTMs own matriarch: Zandra Rhodes with her collection ZANDRA: THE EARLY YEARS, highlighting her work with Sylvia Ayton from the 1960s featuring her pop art inspired prints: Mr. Man, Lightbulbs and Lipstick Themes.
