Tues Nov 22nd: Piers Atkinson Studio

The fashion-centric street of studios on Shacklewell Lane is ever expanding with even more designers setting up residence. The original crew of Peter Jensen, Emma Cook and Shona Heath has sparked off a movement now including Christopher Kane in the same building and a second studio block further up the road. This includes the nexct generation and wave of London Fashion Week labels including Mark Fast, Simone Rocha and JW Anderson. Now a third hub of creatives has spawned like a Monopoly game of putting down extra properties on one side of the board. Alun Davies, Emma Roach and Piers Atkinson are just a stroll towards Stoke Newington and its a walk Ive been pacing quite happily visiting their new premises. Here is a little sneak peak at some of the shelves of blocks and archive pieces above Piers's work benches. Each one tells a story ............. I'm getting the downlow each time I go. Im sure more posts from the world of Piers will be popping up in due course.....
