"I donâ€™t follow fashion, I donâ€™t like to be like everyone else - I like the classic look rather than the fashionable. I go for comfort now, although I did used to wear very high heeled shoes in the past. But I do like a bit of bling as I think it's very feminine - and if youâ€™ve got the cheekbones I think they can carry you anywhere!"
To complement his pictures of Liverpool fashions from 1978 to 1982 featured in the Sound and Vision exhibition, photographer Francesco Mellina took portrait photographs of some of the city's most stylish people in 2009.
All of these photographs are featured here on the website. One of the photographs was also selected to be framed and included on the walls of the exhibition itself by fashion designer Kirsty Doyle, who very kindly judged the Picture This! competition.
