North of England
Referencing Dame Vivienne Westwood, New Order merchandise and copies of The Face from back in the day, 22-year-old designer Sam Nowell is all about the romantic nostalgia of 1980s and ’90s Britain.

After two successful stops in Liverpool and London, the exhibition exploring depictions of the north is back with an even fresher perspective.
