Est. 1984

1984 saw the birth of the Apple Mac, Sweden won Eurovision, O-Levels became GCSEs and Band Aid's 'Do They Know it's Christmas' hit #1 (and every festive party playlist since). Virgin Atlantic flew its maiden voyage, Murder She Wrote made its TV debut, John Galliano graduated from St Martins with his infamous degree show and Arnold Schwarzenegger said "I'll be back" for the first time. The Filofax was the ultimate status symbol and it was the last year that the £1 pound note was in circulation. Ugly Betty, Prince Harry, Katy Perry, Alexander Wang and Scarlett Johansson were all born in '84, and on Christmas Eve so was I.
