Fashion Popcorn meets Georgia Hardinge and Alex Turvey
Last month Fashion Popcorn hotfooted it over to Somerset House for the third season launch of BFC’s Fash/On film initiative (sponsored by River Island) during London Fashion Week AW13.
The room was positively abuzz with people keen to celebrate the onscreen talent that included Saga Sig & Fred Butler, AB/CD/CD & Louis Vuitton, Tom Beard & My Crazy Scrunchie, Amy Gwatkin & Leutton Postle, Magali Charrier & Liora Lassalle, and Nick Knight & Lane Crawford.
We couldn’t help but excitedly notice how the new presence of viewing benches in the room marked a more acknowledging tone and focus for the night, no doubt inspiring a stronger, attentive hush from the audience when the films started.
Back in September this was the event where we met the wonderful William Tempest, whose collection for River Island’s Design Forum was touted on the big screen with a lavishly styled short film from filmmaker Ryan Hope.
This time we were there to talk to latest Design Forum designer Georgia Hardinge together with filmmaker Alex Turvey, whose recent film collaboration to promote Hardinge’s gorgeous new collection was the cinematic showpiece of the night.
