Dear Shaded Viewers,

The Private View was last night and the Modern Pantry was bursting with guests.

DP Homi and Zowie
Zowie Broach from Boudicca was Hormazd's teacher at Westminster and in fact she was the one that encouraged him to not follow a fashion course but rather pursue art. She saw his project with patterns from Savile Row asked Hormazd to explain what they were and where they came from. Turned out they were Dead Men's Patterns from Dege & Skinner on Savile Row. This particular Fairy-God, Fashion-Mother exhibition was inspired by the ATOPOS paper dress collection.
