Sun 25 July: Designer's Jumble Sale
From one of Jo Corre's experimental retail experiences to another - Through The Looking Glass - a conceptual book store in collaboration with Faye Marie. Named after the Lewis Carroll classic, the shop stocks specially selected unusual new, used and antique titles alongside holding book clubs and film screenings.......all fuelled by tea served in Mad Hatter style tea sets.
Thanks to Tom Ryling for tipping me off about the Designer's Jumble Sale which opened its doors today having taken over the book shelves with wares from the closets of a handful of London's fashion collective. Industry sources have unearthed some of their personal surplus runway shoes, samples and inspirational pieces from their own wardrobess including Judy Blame, Pam Hogg, Aimee McWilliams, J.Maskrey, Ben Westwood, Johnny Blue Eyes and A Child of the Jago.
Here are snaps of Judy's jewellery, pin badges and even flip flops which are on sale with some of his t-shirts and parcel tape. Pam Hogg has dug out a few of her vintage pieces from white leather trousers to black patent leather stilettos and even Siouxie Sue records. Downstairs are a few original World End's Westwood separates including tartan bondage trousers, cheese cloth button up slacks and even a pair of Vivienne's own worn geisha platforms.
Unlike a regular jumble sale held on a weekend, this assembly of goods has been extended to a week long event returning again for London Fashion Week in Sept.
As usual tea will be served in the finest china and random film nights in the basement to be announced..........from 12 till 8pm every day until Sat 31st July.........check here for details.
