Upcoming: T-shirt: Cult – Culture – Subversion


FTM London


We have seen them everywhere lately, popping in high street stores with controversial slogans, supporting feminism or displaying our latest Netflix binge favourite - Stranger Things x Topshop, anyone?: the t-tshirt has definitely returned to its full glory in the last couple of years. 

The London Fashion & Textile Museum will soon guide its visitors through the history of this particularly versatile fashion item, from a private collection of Vivienne Westwood t-shirts from the early days of Let it Rock, Sex, and Seditionaries, through to the designers most recent collections, Active Resistance to Propaganda and Climate Revolution.

From men’s underclothes to symbol of rock and roll rebellion, through punk and politics to luxury fashion item, t-shirts broadcast who we are and who we want to be.
