Noughtie Nightlife

Style Cramp dropped in to the launch of an exciting new photo exhibition at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green last week. Noughtie Nightlife was a celebration of all that was fabulous and a bit mental about the dress-up night club scene of the noughties. Cue flashbacks to nights spent travelling to Shoreditch from uni and, maybe i'm mad, but i'm sure I recognised a few characters.

The curator, DJ and photographer Antony Price, is a researcher and lecturer at the London College of Fashion. The exhibition gives an insight into how important club photography was to the noughties night scene, emerging online on sites like Dontstayin.com.
And the fashion was hugely important.

 The underground culture gave us acts like Erol Alkan (curator of cult night Trash, RIP) and Bloc Party and from the shadows re-emerged a New York-like dirty glam scene. Remember Jodie Harsh?


Check out these mad lovelies from the launch night:
