Designer Katherine Hamnett had the great idea of making T-shirts with political slogans. These were very popular as young people were becoming increasingly disheartened with Thatcher's Britain and the slogans perfectly expressed their dissatisfaction.
The idea was adopted by the band Frankie Goes To Hollywood.
They created T-shirts with the slogan Relax Don't Do It - lyrics from their
song Relax. T-shirt advertising, combined with a BBC ban for rudeness, helped to give the song
success beyond their wildest dreams.
