From King’s Road to King’s Cross: The Story of Punk Clothing showcases fashion from the King’s Road to King’s Cross, giving an insight into Punk’s influence across London’s communities and landscape.

The mid 1970s witnessed the birth and blossoming of Punk culture. A heady mix of rebellion, politics and a DIY aesthetic. Expressed not only in music but also fashion, Punk found a home in Chelsea’s King’s Road. Punk style borrowed from previous trends, such as teddy boys and biker gangs, and developed new provocative ones, such as the bondage trousers and printed graphic t-shirts. But Punk was not confined to Chelsea, its influence was felt across London to King’s Cross.

This free exhibition will be held in 6-8 Stable Street from 31 May to 11 June, 10am-6pm daily.

This exhibition contains provocative and sexually explicit content that may not be suitable for all audiences. Parental guidance is advised. 

From King’s Road to King’s Cross: The Story of Punk Clothing is a partnership between King’s Cross and Central Saint Martins.
