Paula Dowd

portrait photo of a stylishly dressed lady

"I like to wear tight jeans and long boots when I go out – I was a punk in the 1980s and I still like to wear my hair messed up when I go out, backcombed and spiky – I still like way out clothes."

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.
