I was really gripped by Norman (Normski) Anderson's work at the 'Staying Power' exhibition at the V&A. He focused on documenting fashion and Black youth culture in London in the 1980s, even working with magazines such as i-D and doing press shots for artists. He was also a huge part of the emerging hip-hop scene in London at the time and coined the name 'Normski' while on a trip to New York.
I have a huge interest in sports and leisurewear as well as hip-hop influenced fashion which was emerging and popular in London in the 1980s.
