Shoreditch Fashion Show

On 27th April, Offbeat and Made in Shoreditch magazine took over the Hoxton Docks for ‘The Shoreditch Fashion Show 2013′. The industrial warehouse space was transformed with unique illustrations, projections and installations on every wall of the venue producing the perfect ambience to host a festival encompassing an array of creative outlets.

The Shoreditch Fashion show 2013 was about more than just innovative fashion; it was a celebration of  live music, art and the work done by some of Britain’s best young designers. Each of the 10 independent designers showcased at the event were selected by a panel of judges (including Eliza Doolittle, Mischa Barton and Oliver Proudlock from Made in Chelsea).

Peyote provided the live soundtrack for majority of the catwalk show, their seductive rock’n’ roll sound was the perfect accompaniment to the models as they strutted their stuff across the stage. The four-some, originally from Bath, are definitely a band to watch out for. Check out their video for ‘Dirty Little Mind Games’.

Bands including an old favourite of mine, Deaf Havana and a new favourite The Thirst also graced the stage. The Thirsts’s performance really stood out with their electric groove sound and impeccable cover of the incredibly popular new Daft Punk track ‘Get Lucky’.

Rufio captivated audiences with his soulful allure as he brought a modern twist to Blues and James Craise seemed to bare all of his emotions as he performed his originals and an awesome acoustic cover of Jessie Ware’s Night Light. 

The event was an incredible success, paving the way for future events of this calibre in Shoreditch.

The Judges

Twenty-eight designers have already had to prove they were able to market themselves to a wide audience by accumulating Facebook likes, retweets, pins and traffic on their page. The ten applicants with the most social media buzz have been put through to the final phase meaning their designs will be shown infront of a star studded judging panel, who will then decide which two lucky designers will have their collections shown at the final event.  Hollywood superstar, Mischa Barton will be sitting on the panel along with pop sensation Eliza Doolittle and Made in Chelsea’s Oliver Proudlock. Renowned fashion illustrators, artists and photographers will be providing creative support and the experience is set to be an unforgettable and dynamic one for everyone who attends.

Since my last post, I have been tremendously busy working on content for BOA Broadcast’s first magazine show, ‘Friday @ Two’.

After finishing off ‘Sack Sales on New Street’, I filmed a cooking show with Jake. We tried to steer away from the usual presenter led programmes and concentrate more on the visuals. I am really proud of the finished product so please, check it out!

The final VT I worked on was a feature on the Clothes show. With our press passes we were able to get into restricted areas and get interviews with designers, organisers and models. For me, the highlight of the experience was having to fight our way to the front of the press pit at the end of the fashion theatre catwalk.

Here’s the final product…

The filming of ‘Friday @ Two’ went smoothly. It was a very collaborative effort, we chose two students from the acting pathway to present after the auditions and they were absolutely fabulous. The rest of the crew worked well together and despite a few hiccups along the way, I think we pulled through it.

I am looking forward to working on the next episode of ‘Friday @ Two’ and using everything we learnt to make February’s show even better than our Christmas special.
