Banned by London Weekend Television, Dressing For Pleasure explores the fetishism of latex, leather and rubber clothing and centres around Atomage – the infamous fetishist magazine – and Sex, Vivienne Westwood’s and Malcolm McLaren’s King’s Road emporium, the only shop to openly sell latex fetish-wear and a well known hang out for punks, including, of course, the Sex Pistols.
A fascinating documentary of this frantically creative period in British history. Westwood showed this unique documentary during her retrospective exhibition at the V&A in 2004.
