BLITZ CLUB LONDON 1980s

Covent Garden, London, England circa February 1980.  The Blitz Kids at the Blitz Club were a group of people who frequented the Tuesday club-night in Covent Garden from 1979-80. They are credited with launching the New Romantic subcultural movement. There was an emphasis on style that was ensured by enforcing a strict dress code at the door. Crucially, the Blitz lay between two art colleges (St Martin's School and Central School) and it became a testbed for student fashion designers who set London ablaze during the 1980s. The club was decked out in Second World War posters and thus the Clubs name. <br />
