Flashdance the musical has just opened in London’s West End at the Shaftesbury Theatre. The iconic movie originally opened in 1983 and of course it had a huge influence on fashion – just think 30 years later and at American Apparel we can buy shiny tights and legwarmers!
I attended the Flashdance Gala Opening Night party – it was so much fun. It took place at the Waldorf Astoria and the place was packed, everyone was dressed up and just having fun. Naturally they played 80’s music and everybody danced! I love going to non-fashion events and seeing people just enjoying fashion. Love this glass ice sculpture too!
