|Johnson's Kensington Market shop, 1980s|
In between the arranging & setting up, and whatever else needs to be done when setting up an exhibit of this size, Gorman has found the time to post updates on his blog, Paul Gorman Is. He's done four as of this writing, and for those of you interested in rock 'n roll history & fashion, I highly suggest taking a look at whats in store for visitors to Chelsea Space. I have to say I'm really disappointed that I have no reason to be in London right now.
Lloyd Johnson: The Modern Outfitter – the exhibition about one of the greatest contributors to British street fashion and visual culture of recent times – is at London gallery Chelsea Space in the New Year, from January 24 to March 3. The show will be centred on Johnson’s archive of garments, artwork, fabrics, ephemera and personal effects, augmented by contributions from customers and collectors from Tokyo to Sydney to LA.
The Chelsea Space is at:
Chelsea College of Art and Design

London SW1P 4JU
