Thursday 2nd February: Molly Goddard's "Women In Fashion" Dinner at NOW Gallery

Fresh after the weekend's Women's March On London, NOW Gallery held a "Women In Fashion" symposium as part of the programme for their current show "What I Like" by Molly Goddard.  We sat down to dinner above the main gallery with a view of the Millennium Dome and table of hand crafted flygaric mushrooms by Molly's mother and co-curator Sarah Edwards.  The designer gave an interview as insight to her installation alongside curators from the V&A who talked thru the upcoming Balenciaga exhibition (the UK's first!).  Each course by Craft London was interspersed with these presentations, including shoe designer Tracy Neules sharing her inspirations including a collection of patterned match-boxes.  Not only was each dish accompanied by a complimentary wine but also an entertaining and revealing speech.  It was a real treat to be brought together in such great company and have the opportunity to meet and get to know creatives who might not have come together in this way.  A week on, my gifted bouquet of ranunculus by Scarlet & Violet is still going strong!  A cosmic memento from a real one-off event!  

Molly's show of tulle dresses displayed for the public to embroider is still on till the 22nd of Februrary with a closing event, see more details here.
