At the start of the 1980s, three new style magazines emerged to define an era in London. It was a time of change: after Punk, before the digital age, and at the dawn of a hedonistic club scene that saw the birth of the New Romantics. On the pages of BLITZ, The Face and i-D, a new breed of young iconoclasts presented their sartorial and cultural visions, hoping to inspire revolution.
As BLITZ's fashion editor from 1982 to '87, Iain R. Webb was at the centre of this world. His images manipulated fashion to explore ideas of transformation, beauty, glamour and sex. This evocative relic features over 100 BLITZ fashion stories highlighting unseen archive content, original images, and interviews with key designers of the period.
