The New Romantic movement was an explosion of style, styling, androgyny and fashion. Formed in London in the late 1970s it was as a defiant answer to punk. It represented a flirtation with artifice and beauty through a new form of music, fashion and performance. ‘The Blitz Club’ became the London stage on which certain members of the scene played.
