Let’s interact – line-up confirmed for Fashion Popcorn’s December 1 salon
Yum! As promised, the third Fashion Popcorn digital salon takes place on December 1 in East London. We might be still digesting the cakes and conversation of last week’s event during Encounters, Bristol, but there’s always room for more, and we don’t want to leave a hole.
What with November 21 being Stir-in Sunday (when we should traditionally be cooking up Christmas puds), we’ve been gradually adding all the ingredients for what we hope will be an entertaining, thought-provoking, plum evening of ideas, creativity and pondering.
Loosely based around the theme of interaction – from person-to-person to brands with consumers – we’re welcoming back Stink‘s Stephen Whelan, who promises to extend his rail against clique-y fashion marketing and vacuous use of fashion film, while celebrating the more innovative film with a mini showcase.
We’ll also be introducing artist-cum-curator Joceline Howe to the Fashion Popcorn podium, who’ll be installing her take away art booth for us to be delighted by and play with. Like us, she loves cake, food, lego and fashion, and I’m very excited to finally get to experience her booth first-hand. Tales have been told of how she perplexed the great minds at Hewlett Packard with her ‘wirefree’ art experience, so we shall see how we Popcorners manage on that front!
Like all good Christmas puddings, we’ll be soaking the Fashion Popcorn salon line-up with extra ingredients over the next weeks, so watch this space for updates!
The next Fashion Popcorn digital fashion salon takes place on December 1 at The Crown Pub & Dining Room, Grove Road, London, E3. Arrive 6.30pm for 7pm start; RSVP essential.
Thanks to Havana Club and Geronimo Inns for arrival drinks and food.
