About The Contemporary Wardrobe Collection
Contemporary Wardrobe was originally set up in 1978, by costume designer & stylist Roger K. Burton as a hire company to supply street fashion to the film & TV industry. Now some 30 years later, the collection exceeds 15000 garments and includes definitive items from British and American youth cults as well as classic fashions from seminal boutiques such as Mr Freedom, Biba and Seditionaries, couture houses such as Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, and Givenchy. Over the years the collection has been used in many feature films such as Quadrophenia, Sid & Nancy, Absolute Beginners and Hackers, and has been worn by literally hundreds of pop icons from David Bowie, Annie Lennox, George Harrison through to PJ Harvey, and MIA.
The classic and cult value of this collection makes it a great source for many of today’s eclectic and individualist street styles, as recognised by its use in current Feature Films, Music Videos, Fashion Magazines and Museums worldwide.
To our knowledge we are, the sole, largest and most important collection of street fashion and culture in Europe.
