Our BUST Craftacular is a week away from going down in London; it’s only natural we pay some homage to a Union Jack-sporting female.

You know all of those cool photographs you see on your Tumblr and Pinterest dashboards that show ever-fashionable mods, punks, and rockabillies? Of course you do! You've probably even re-blogged a couple to boot.

It's possible Anita Corbin took the images you've been looking at; she photographed the "informal uniforms" of different female subcultures in London about thirty years ago. Her photographs show the insight she had into London's fashion fads which turned into entire lifestyles.

In 1981 the Cockpit Gallery Project was responsible for creating the traveling exhibition at which Anita's photographs were shown. However, it's been years since Anita has seen any of her photo subjects. In fact, if you recognize yourself in any of these pictures holla at her here.
