Denis Shiel

portrait photo of a stylishly dressed man

"I managed to get to the tail end of Eric's, then I used to go to Planet X and Sloan's, later the Krazy House. I customised this outfit myself around 1981-82 to wear at Planet X. I still wear it occasionally. Looking at the pictures in Sound and Vision brought back a lot of great memories."

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.
