The ICA will host the first major solo exhibition by accessories designer, art director and fashion stylist Judy Blame. A menagerie of safety pins, buttons, badges, pearls, bottle tops, cutlery, plastic bags, toy soldiers and keys form an inventory of objects that Blame has inventively adapted to create his trademark jewellery designs and other accessories.In the early 1980’s Blame’s strong attitude and a desire to distinguish himself within the London club scene motivated him to produce jewellery.
Blame has worked with well known designers and stylists such as shoemaker John Moore, fashion designer Christopher Nemeth and knitwear designer Richard Torry. In the early 2000s he was even contacted by Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons, who invited him to sell his jewellery in her Dover Street Market stall.
You can view Blame's intricate designs from June 29th.
