A Summer in London

Fashion particularly 1970s and early 80s fashion is having a bit of a moment in London.

On the heels of its blockbuster exhibition devoted to the style of David Bowie, a show that has been drawing huge crowds since it opened in March (and that runs through Aug. 11), the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington is about to unveil an exhibition that takes a close look at the club-inspired styles of London in the 1980s.

Called Club to Catwalk, the show, which opens on Wednesday and runs through Feb.16, 2014, features the distinctive looks of the young British designers just beginning to make their names then among them, Katherine Hamnett, Jasper Conran, Paul Smith and John Galliano as well as the influences of the gender-bending night-life fixture Leigh Bowery and the New Romantic pop star Adam Ant.

While that show will undoubtedly draw some of the same crowds that have been flocking to the Bowie show, another new, somewhat less flashy exhibition might also prove popular among fashion followers. It is Fashion Rules, at Kensington Palace, which opened last Thursday and features the fashions of Queen Elizabeth II; her sister, Princess Margaret; and her onetime daughter-in-law, Diana, Princess of Wales.
