ROGER K. BURTON (Collector)

THE STORY:
“As i progressed my education I realised I was very influenced by surrealism and the darker side of life. When I was doing photoshoots and filming I was always trying to push the boundaries. I wanted to collect these things because no one else was, I felt I was onto something that gave me a great deal of satisfaction.”

CAROLINE BAKER (Stylist)

THE STORY:
”Liz Smith - who was the Fashion Editor at Cosmopolitan - kept running into me on the King’s Road (as I was living there and working for Vivienne Westwood). I was running around with my hair wrapped in rags and I was like the Rasta girl, wearing what became the Mud skirt. Liz wanted me to come to Cosmo as they were looking for a new Fashion Editor... Nearly all the work I did in Cosmo was fashion led at a time when fashion was changing, it was a time after Punk when the New Romantics and ruffles were coming in. To feature Vivienne in a magazine you would almost have to smuggle the clothes in so your Editor didn’t really notice…”

KEITH AT SMILE (Hairdresser)

THE STORY:
“Toyah first came to me via Derek Jarman. He was making a film called ‘Jubilee’, which Toyah starred in. Before this she’d been having her hair done in Birmingham… They didn’t have access to the colours and dyes that I’d been working with, and so she came to me with this mad black and green hair. I basically had to cut off as much of her hair as possible because it wasn’t in good condition. So this haircut came shortly after ‘Jubilee’.

THE RAINCOATS (Band)

THE STORY:
“There is definitely something to be said for doing things your own way, against a mainstream. I you can have some integrity and honesty and not care about the sneers of the trendy fashionistas who were often actually the traditionalists who just didn’t get it!”
(Quote: Gina Birch of The Raincoats)

EDDIE OTCHERE (Photographer)

THE STORY:
“This was shot in New York and this is very typical cross processing. High contrast, super garish colours. And I think he deserved that because he came from that sort of dance music culture at the time and he deserved a vibrant energy. He’d clearly had a night before and came in with a plastic on his nose so I said, well i can work with that so long as you’re happy with it…”

ROBERT RUBBISH (Illustrator)

THE STORY:
”A young mod fresh in town finds himself in a subterranean night club in old soho with a very curious clientele. As the night develops, he meets a ‘lady' called Lola... nothing is what it seems, and he falls in love for the first time with a woman who's really a man. This artwork is inspired by The Kinks song 'Lola'."

THE STORY:
"Johnny Lydon shot at the Hordern Pavilion, Sydney December 1984. Taken before safety barriers were around separating the audience from the band. 100 punks pogoing on and around my head, and personally surreal because I got married the following morning! No real connection between the two events."

LEE SHULMAN (Collector)

THE STORY:
"I've been working as a film director for over 15 years and have always loved images that have a narrative content. I had always been a fan of colour slide photography and one day, while on Ebay, i saw a lot of 35mm Kodachrome slides for sale so i bought them. When they arrived i couldn’t believe the amazing quality i saw in these unique images. I immediately started trying to get my hands on as many slides as possible and soon realised that the value of this collective memory and its importance. These images are all completely unique, portraits of family life, often full of emotion, funny, and surprising. Little windows into our shared memories, these treasures tell the story of all our lives."

TONI HALLIDAY (Musician)

THE STORY:
"The 90’s wasn’t quite as forward thinking and empowering as it pretended to be. Lips, tits, hips, power may have been the mantra but the industry was still run by some pretty unenlightened men. I don’t think I had as tough a time as some of my female friends did but inequality was very near the surface. Flippant comments weren’t necessarily jumped on and seen as taboo like they are now. Lets just say we’ve come a long way."

NORBERT SCHOERNER (Director + Photographer)

THE STORY:
"I first went to Tokyo in 1992 on a story for the Face magazine and was instantly fascinated by the contrast between tradition, modernity, superstition and technology. It triggered something in me. I felt a deep connection to the people, their rituals and conventions, the art, the architecture... the food. In the mid 90’s I signed with an agent there, which allowed me to go back frequently, also discovering more of the country itself. That also became the foundation for an array of friendships and collaborations - which endure to this day."

STEPHEN LANE (Collector)

THE STORY:
"It was a slow progression. I was constantly selling and re-stocking and re-jigging. and was self-financed, really. The market didn’t even exist when i started! It wasn’t as easy as setting up a website and there you go. I spent a good 20 years delivering that message, going to conventions and talks and panels all around the world..."

THE STORY:
"I think people love austere seriousness in art, that's what they pay you for. I keep trying to not do comedy - it really doesn't work in the art world. But I can't stop myself..."

ANNIE KEVANS (Artist)

THE STORY:
"I think it’s wonderful that Jean Paul Gaultier is able to honour his muses and their creativity which has inspired his own. I think we’ve all been influenced by Jean Paul Gaultier’s ideas, from his celebration of the unusual to his subverting of the familiar. The strong social message in his work is very inspiring to create works that reflect society and celebrate different types of beauty, without following the fixed standards of beauty presented by the fashion industry - all genders, body sizes, skin colours, religions and ages are included in his world.”

DOUG ORDWAY (Photographer)

THE STORY:
”My relatively quick move from apprentice to working fashion photographer came about by taking some risks. Once I stopped assisting I moved to Milan, having a few Italian contacts but not knowing a soul. I always advise anyone just starting out in the industry to move to a foreign City. Besides acquiring the inspiration of living in a foreign land, a young American photographer is much more of a novelty in a foreign city…”

DUGGIE FIELDS (Artist)

THE STORY:
"By the early 1970’s I found myself sharing a flat with founder of Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett - the home/studio I’ve occupied on my own ever since. A 1960’s conversion of an Edwardian Mansion flat, there are piles of paintings stacked as well as displayed on walls. Through the years here I’ve walked miles to wash a paintbrush, the sink being in the kitchen at the furthest point away from my studio... It’s a space that reflects taste and time. I can’t think of any reason I’d want to leave."

ANELLO & DAVIDE (Designers)

THE STORY:
“In the 1960s we designed and made a style of boot which became arguably our most famous shoe - for our most famous customers - the Fab Four. The 'Beatle Boot' created queues of Mods outside the Drury Lane shop, and has been in popular demand ever since.”

BRIAN SANDERS (Illustrator)

THE STORY:
"Stanley Kubrick commissioned me to draw on set two or three days a week to prepare a portfolio on the making of '2001 a Space Odyssey'. I also worked, from information gained, to produce larger pieces back at my studio in Soho. The piece chosen is acrylic on canvas four feet wide. It features Kubrick (in blue jacket) with his camera crew. The balding man is cameraman Geoff Unsworth who directed a number of Stanley’s films. The actor in the rotating camera tube is Kier Dulea..."
