Blade Runner, Peter Saville, Vivienne Westwood, New Order, Émigré, i-D and Grace Jones all feature in the V&A’s current major exhibition. Encompassing music, art, film, fashion and architecture from 1970 -1990, it is the most engaging exhibition i've visited in a while and defines as best it can, this controversial movement which ironically defies categorization.

"One eye open. One eye hidden. Wink! The blink of a shutter. The right eye is the right eye. Catch the moment in an instant. Knowledge transmitted by secret insiders. i-D is more than a magazine, and i-D covers have caught and continue to catch the moment when the imaginative power of a collection of people comes together. The best covers register and are recognised as a marker of the month, year and place. Hidden is the energy that has accumulated over 30 years, and there are now more than 350 covers - plus the ones that never got printed each with a personal story."
Terry Jones, i-D Founder and Editor in Chief
i-D NOW is a retrospective show celebrating 31 years of i-D magazine at the Red Gallery Shoreditch, until 18th September. It's fully worth the visit to see some amazing covers created by the world's top photographers, stylists and make-up artists. I have always loved the genius concept of the wink face and it was fantastic to see it through three decades featuring super icons of the times such as Kate Moss, Tom Ford and Sienna Miller.
