Weds 7th Sept: i-D NOW exhibition
Yesterday I checked out the current i-D NOW exhibition which charts every single issue of i-D magazine to celebrate its 31st birthday. A copy of each cover is hung in chronological order along each wall of the Red Gallery with other associated artefacts dotted around. Its lush to be able to get up close to all the originals of these iconic images. I couldn't leave without picking up a giant poster and pin-badges from the giftshop - Im a sucker for merch!
The reason for my visit was to take part in the photoshoot of Craig Lawrence cataloguing his archive of dresses on his collaborators and muses. Throughout the day his family of friends pitched up in turn to try on one of his incredible garms and pose for the photographer Alistair Strong in the pop-up studio open for public viewing. Have a look at the site to see details of all the events in the next week including a myriad of music nights ..............
