Weds 7th Oct: Taking Liberties, Prints Charming

This picture has nothing to do with this post but heck, its a corker isn't it?!  Its my nephew Blake from a few year's ago sporting an outfit which was quite avantgarde for the time looking at the Watermelon theme from Peter Jensen's S/S10 collection!  Anyway to the point...............from the print theme of yesterday onto a print theme for be exact = Liberty print..............and your chance to win an hour to appear and perform in the store's window .......(sounds a little like the Anthony D'offay moment with Leigh Bowery to me) find out how to enter by putting together a printastic look, have a look at the guidelines below............I'm on the judging panel so its going to be a very passive way, natch.
From now until Wednesday 21st Oct there is a 2nd installment of the SHOWstudio competition "Taking More Liberty's" which is an interactive exhibit in the window of Liberty's to celebrate the spontaneous creativity and theatre of London’s street style. Originally broadcast as Taking Liberty’s in 2004, in association with the London department store of the same name, the project offered passers-by the chance to record their personal style. An interactive camera and sensor was placed in the window of Liberty’s on Regent Street, inviting passers-by to capture their ‘look’. The phenomenal response of over 17,000 participants in a two-month period proved how the street is as fertile a breeding ground for fashion imagery as the photographic studio. All of the images were posted on as a testament to the democratic nature of London’s internationally renowned street style, captured by day and by night. The project is restaged as part of SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution, with the set-up once again placed in the windows of Liberty’s.To celebrate the SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution at Somerset House Taking Liberty’s project which kicked off yesterday, Liberty Online is running its own competition to search for a fabulously dressed star. The winner will be invited to appear in our iconic Liberty windows during the lunch hour on Friday, October 23rd.
