When I heard about the V&A's latest exhibition, You Say You Want A Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970, I was excited to say the least. The V&A is my favourite museum in London and I could happily spend all day there.
In April 1966, Time magazine dubbed London 'The Swinging City', reflecting its dramatic rise to the centre of world attention. A huge upheaval was taking place in British social and artistic morals. The thriving fashion and cultural scene of 'Swinging London' in the '60s centred on the rise of clothing boutiques such as Bazaar on the King's Road and Biba, which offered colorful new designs for the younger generation. This major exhibition explores the era defining significance and impact of the late 1960s, expressed through some of the greatest music and performances of the 20th century alongside fashion, film, design and political activism.
I wanted to see the exhibition straight away but decided to wait until my birthday as going to the V&A has become a bit of a birthday tradition. Unfortunately you aren't allowed to take any pictures so the ones above are from the V&A website. The exhibition is great and was definitely worth the wait, I could have spent all day there!
