10. The Foundry

The Foundry was a clothes shop that Peter Small opened to add to his Street Theatre shop in the early 1980s. Boy George worked as a window dresser and Sue Clowes sold her designs, which were worn by bands such as Culture Club, the Cure and Bananarama.

Boy George, Sue Clowes and Alison Hay talk about the Foundry and its influence on fashion and music in the early 1980s, in the shop which is now MOR Jewellery.

Further information and archive images about the Foundry can be found on the Blitz Kids website.
