AtomAge magazine was the underground bible of leather, rubber and vinyl fetish wear throughout the 1970s. Founded, designed and published by John Sutcliffe as a way of showcasing his extraordinary clothing designs, it quickly became a focal point for explorers of every kind of fledgling clothing scene. For its readers, AtomAge was both an instruction manual and a mirror. The experimental clothing, including items made by the readers themselves, transformed a passion for a sexual kink into a cult phenomenon. The photographs reflect an age of amateur enthusiasm before fetish became the industry it is today, inadvertently depicting a suburbia from which Dressing for Pleasure was a necessary escape. These outrageous costumes were an inspiration to a new generation of fashion designers, many of whom have since been assimilated into high-end collections. Presenting the most astonishing imagery from all thirty-two issues of this now rare and sought-after cult magazine, Dressing for Pleasure illustrates not just Sutcliffe's exceptional designs, but also, through their own photography and writing, the fantasies and desires of AtomAge followers.
