Forward Thinking

On a miserable day like today there is one thing that can cheer anyone up... thinking ahead to whats coming up for the rest of this year.

Within the next couple of weeks is both PV and fashion week, reports on those coming.

I'm looking further ahead to next month, October.

On the first, I can continue my love for vintage printed cotton dresses, this time from the late 60's with new British film 'Made in Dagenham'. The film is about the 187 female workers who sewed the car seat covers in ford's car plant, in Essex, who in '68 went on strike for 3 weeks over pay and revolutionized equal rights pay. At the time they were considered unskilled workers (despite having to have 1 years machinist experience and pass a test) and received 87% of man's unskilled pay. As ever the high point for me will be the costumes. You can see the trailer here.

On the
15 October 2010 'Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion' opens at the Barbican. As a huge fan of Japanese fashion I can not wait for this exhibition (which claims to be Europe's first comprehensive exhibition) that spans Japanese fashion from the 1980s to today. The exhibition looks 'the unique sensibility of Japanese design' and features the work of Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto Junya Watanabe, Jun Takahashi, Tao Kurihara, Fumito Ganryu, Matohu, Akira Naka. Very exciting.

One for chocolate lovers out there (I'm talking about you Loz :) a free exhibition 'So Noble a Confection: Producing and Consuming Chocolate, 1600 - 2000' that explores 400 years of loving chocolate.

and on the 3rd of November 'Drawing Fashion' opens at the design museum. an exhibition which as it sounds is on fashion illustration from the beginning of the century right though to today. It is going to feature the work of Chanel and Dior as well as Viktor and Rolf.

Back to the barbican for an evening for Barbican Cosplay Extravaganza on
6th November 2010 from 6pm til 1am, which will feature video games, DJs, cosplay and a Loli fashion parade. makes me regret getting rid of my loli clothes. as the barbicans says "Prepare to party with giant foxes, magical princesses and superheroes…"

I'll see you there....
