Last Saturday, I discovered that The Shoreditch Fashion Show was running...on that very same day! It was through Twitter via @TheMovement_UK that I made the discovery.
Ten minutes later, tickets were booked!
The Shoreditch Fashion Show was the first fashion show I attended and it did not disappoint. Various up and coming designer brands, as well as well established ones showcased their latest collections and there was a lot of aesthetic inspiration I could draw from them for my brand - especially with regards to patterning. Although the clothing on show was not t-shirts or sweatshirts, there were a lot of little elements which could be positively drawn from the event.
Just to insert - the clothing on the night was completely world class and I am sure anyone who is a dab hand at designing dresses or simply likes them, would have loved this!
The awesome night consisted of networking, bumping into Oliver Proudlock (of Made In Chelsea / Oliver Sweeney / Serge De Nimes fame) who was a very cool dude, watching Kill It Kid and Ruffio Summers perform, and getting an all round experience of how a fashion show pans out. I will definitely be returning for the next Shoreditch Fashion Show and I highly recommend it to anyone who has any interest in fashion.
I am sure The Shoreditch Fashion Show and Roy Ikoroha will cross paths again soon.
