Weds 24th Nov: Hunger Magazine Launch
On the cusp of Dazed celebrating their 20th anniversary with a retrospective exhibition and book, Rankin has also launched his very own solo magazine titled "Hunger". The wedge of a fashion and design bi-annual is bursting with familiar faces all shot by Rankin himself including his friends Rhys Evans, Ann Friel and Erin O'Connor. Either side of these stories sit iconic legends such as Linda Evangalista and newcomers such as illustrator / director Quentin Jones and menswear designers AGI & SAM. Each artist appearing in the physical print issue also has a film of their shoot to show behind the scenes and share some words over on the sister website, of which Ive selected these. Everyone pitched up at Rankin's Kentish Town studios last night to celebrate the launch with prints hanging on the walls and the videos projected behind a stage for the featured live act performing - musician / designer DELS. The place got packed out with hardly any room to move until the arrival of the magnificent beauty Erin O'Connor who parted the waves of party-goers in a floor length Craig Lawrence gown. ............. who was over the moon to see one of his creations on such an incredible personality. He became quite the lady's man by the end of the night with Portia Freeman seen also wearing one of his knits, this one a short mini-dress in midnight blue.
The magazine is only £4, so snap up a copy next time you are in the newsagents or head over to the site to see all the on-set footage.........
