Both these designers – whose wares you can snap up on Closetbox– had fashion shows this weekend. Showing that Closetbox caters for diversities of taste, this is what you missed:
Venue: Hanbury Hall in Shoreditch (otherwise home to gospel choirs and school plays)
Number of dogs: 5 airdogs, number of cupcakes consumed: 500, number of fags smoked: Georgia’s fans and assorted beautiful people politely smoked menthols outside by Rough Trade, number of voddy tonics: lovely cups of tea during the show and then drinks at a local boozer collection inspiration: laduree macaroons
Georgia warmed up with a runway show of various vintage designers before toddling onto the stage wearing a Joan-Collins chic black and white ensemble and then introducing her own S/S2011 collection – which the demure models showed off whilst strutting their stuff to MC Solaar. Lots of pastels, ruffles, beautiful stitching and of course her trademark turbans (of SATC2 fame and as worn by Kelis)
HOUSE OF BLUE EYES
Venue: White Horse, Shoreditch (otherwise home to ‘£1 in a pint glass’ strippers)
Number of dogs: 2 pitbulls and a girl in a fox mask, number of cupcakes consumed: there were a few models with cherries and icing on their boobs if that counts, number of smokin fags: oh, hundreds, but props to the ‘larger gents’ in feather headpieces and body glitter…number of voddy tonics: many more than the legal limit collection inspiration: lady bits
Johnny opened with a pole dance; gyrating to ‘Dog Days Are Over’ in a long white robe and gold heels before three androgynous ‘goddesses’ showed off his S/S2011 collection whilst licking the pole – and each other. Then an extremely buff male poledancer took to the pole (backflips and gravity defying stunts) in a pair of red speedos. Johnny also launched his pop-up store in the same venue, where for the next few months you can buy knitted dildos scented with lavender and lovely HOBE unicorn logo tees and vests.
Yup – as we said – items from both collections will be available at www.closetbox.co.uk.
It takes all sorts to make the fashion world go ’round…
