With VOICES East London opening today I could not resist reposting this gem from 2003 Fashioned Out! London by yours truly and DISCIPLE FILMS

Dear Shaded Viewers,

If you are wondering why I’m digging through the archives it is because I met with some IFM students the other day who are writing a memoir on fashion shows and aside from recommending they read Federico Poletti and Giorgia Cantarini’s book “The Fashion Set” https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Books/Fashion-Set-Art-Show-Federico-Poletti/1909399833 I sent them links from Disciple Films and my document on fashion weeks 2002-03.
