WHAT WE WORE | A People’s History of British Style

Published by Prestel, What We Wore is a printed documentation of Britain and it’s individual personalities and their attitudes, expressed through personal style.

The books author, Nina Manandhar (together with Eva Dawoud) spent months compiling images and memories, captured through a lens and forever captured in time through WWW.

With contributions from Ted Polhemus, Gary Aspden and Paul Gorman the book is legitimate in approach and it’s photographic contributions compliment this perfectly.

Crowd-sourced images cover an array of genres (mods, punks, pop) from personalities such as Tracey Emin, Jazzy B, Don Letts and London creators Carri Munden and Suzannah Pettigrew (below).

It’s all about self-expression, captured by a lens documenting special moments in time, now ready to be reminisced over.
