The New Romantics and The Blitz Kids were a British subcultural phenomenon in the late 1970s and early 80s. Rising within the Thatcher era, famous clubs like the Blitz club and Hero spawned the surreal looking, androgynous youths, along with creating a fashion legacy and an influential music sound. The likes of Visage, Culture Club, Spandau Ballet and Marliyn rose to public attention.
Although this youth subculture started underground it quickly become mainstream, but with its popularity came it’s downfall and its disappeared and faded to grey. Today you can the Blitz Kids influence on fashion and music through the likes of Roisin Murphy, (fugly) Lady Gaga and La Roux.
Back in England at last! Lots of cheese (best cheese in the world), oven cooking, my lovely friends, family and my cat (you can see him below)!
There really is a big difference between the UK and South Korea, it seems even the smallest things are different. For example going shopping, in the UK you can never find a sales assistant and in Korea they chase you around the store. However I must say the shopping is much much better here in England 🙂 but….. finding a job seems to be difficult right now so I am hoping I will find one soon! fingers crossed…..
Here’s some photos of my lion heart:
