Enjoy this trip. From Taboo DJ Jeffrey Hinton’s emotive film and music ‘Blitz’ installation to sneakpeeks of London’s fresh-faced fashion cognoscenti in the wildest nightclubs, let Club to Catwalk take to for a ride through the 1980s.
All Walks, which celebrates diversity and beauty in body shape and size, and aims to get the fashion industry doing likewise, hosted Snapped, a thrumming evening of hot debate, and exclusive Rankin preview, i-D straight-up-style photobooth and an inspired art trail tonight, part of the National Portrait Gallery ‘Late Shift’ series. Hosted by the organisation’s founders Caryn Franklin, Debra Bourne and […]
An undisputed hot-bed of emerging talent – Wendy Dagworthy, RCA‘s Head of Fashion & Textiles, received an OBE in the new year honours list, such is her contribution to the fashion industry – tomorrow sees the prestigious post-grad college fling open its doors to the always-inspirational Work in Progress exhibition.
