They’re holding a free exhibition at The Dray Walk Gallery, part of the Old Truman Brewery, to celebrate three decades of their styles.
In 1982, in Camden Market, Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway started selling their funky garments – re-styled pieces they’d bought from second-hand stores.
The label’s creators have always been ahead of the trends and knew then how to get noticed with their controversial designs. Soon big players in the fashion industry were taking notice and the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier and Demi Moore were celebrity fans.
As well as the chance to clap eyes on real classic pieces, attendees will be able to get a sneak peek of their up-to-date special edition ‘Pearly Collection’ (on sale in Bank fashion stores, see bankfashion.co.uk).
Open November 9-11, 11am-7pm cost Free
