Alternative Fashion Week Notes

The Alternative Fashion Week has begun, at last! And my notes;
Alternative Fashion Week is one of the most excited free fashion shows.
The audience is huge, not to mention the big interest of press.
The designers are consisted of fashion design schools' students (Colchester School of Art & Design, Derby University, Newham College...), new graduates and young designers...

Some other participating designers were; Kira Goodey & Tane Andrews, inspired by churches & cathedrals, Cherrie Camplin with costumes defining timelessness as moving sculpture, Turkish designer, London College of Fashion tutor Ismail Erbil with his costumes combining weariness and luxury , Swedish designer Wilfried Pletzinger, with his colourful & exciting recycled sportswear collection.
In a nutshell the show has all you would expect and more from a free fashion show!

Occupying Spaces: The White Dress Project

The project is devised by MA Fashion Curation students of London College of Fashion and directed by Amy de la Haye and Judith Clark. A perfect place for a fashion exhibition, the project can be seen at Carnaby's Broadwick Street.
The exhibition features a various number of identical white dresses in a series of both conventional and unusual ways. The trick is that all dresses are interacting with the gallery space. And the best part is you can also design your own white dress and hang it on the wall. Isn't it great to become a part of an exhibition, not so common, aye?
You can also write your comments on this white dress...

The Project runs seven days a week until 23rd April between 11am - 7pm (Sundays close at 5pm and Thursday open until 8pm) at 65 – 67 Broadwick Street, London W1.

"Tell G-20 Leaders
We Won't Pay For Their Crisis"
