Saturday 15th June: In Those Jeans at Old Shoreditch Station

In Those Jeans is a clothing brand co-founded by Charlene Davies and Safia El Dabi, inspired by the music and style of their beloved 1990’s era and influence of their surrounding East London scene.  The girls specialise in selling sourced unworn, original 90′s high waisted jeans in a range of colours and sizes for men and women. Perfect fit for girls who want to show off their waist and booty and great for guys who like a narrow, tapered leg! The jeans are sold around the city at different markets and pop up shops once a month. Their latest unique sales event is an exhibition at The Old Shoreditch Station showcasing a collection of  commissioned jeans, customised and photographed by 10 creatives including Work IT GirlsPoppy Chancellor  and Lizzie King. Here are snaps from the launch event and shots of work-in-progres from the different artists during their seperate studio sessions:
