Accessories designer, art director, and fashion stylist Judy Blame is known for his non-conformist attitude. Safety pins, buttons, badges, pearls, bottle tops, cutlery, plastic bags, toy soldiers, and keys form an inventory of objects that Blame has innovatively adapted to create his trademark accessories.
His modest resources shaped his DIY approach and led him to incorporate found objects as a foundation for making his adornments; early creations questioned established material hierarchies and were testimony to the harsh realities of industrial and economic decline. During the 1980s Blame encountered a range of creative individuals including Derek Jarman, Anthony Price, John Maybury, and Leigh Bowery, who championed his inventive approach to making fashion accessories.
