What is the London look?
Body Adorned exhibtion co-curator Wayne Modest gives his view.
TRANSCRIPT Hi, I'm Wayne Modest, and I'm co-curator of the Body Adorned exhibition. It's hard to say that there is a London look, that there's a single London look. I mean, London in itself as a city is... I find it's such a big city, that it's so varied, that in some ways sometimes is polarised or segregated... that so many different kinds of people live in different places in London. So to say that there is one London look is hard. I think that what one could define as a London look is what emerged out of the coincidences of many different traditions coming together, that also coincides basically with a city that has always been a world city, an international city. So in terms of fashion, style, in terms of movements, flows of textiles, materials, people. So if one could say... what I would say is that the London look is one that has emerged out of global flows of both materials, objects, as well as styles and ideas about what fashion is, about what dress is. But that's said, there's one person who says that the London look is very dark, and black, and that London has no colour. I'd disagree with that. I think one has to not even look so closely or so far to find that London is a place where there is colour, and there is a lot of colour and individuality, that there is a shared feeling for what dress is. That it is quite - in my interviews - that it is actually quite an edgy place. One thing that I think is important, though, is that while London is also place where people are free to dress - many people think about it in terms of individuality and freedom, there's also a lot of structures that prevent people from dressing in one way and others from dressing in another way. So it is not a place of absolute freedom as we think it is. It is stil l a place with its structures of prohibitions.
