If you are suffering from London Fashion Week withdrawal head down to the Victoria and Albert Museum for an evening that will take you on an exciting journey through the history of British Fashion.
Among an exclusive selection of wonderful insights into the fashion industry the brilliant illustrator Tanya Ling will be painting strong fashion silhouettes of a live model, which I am thrilled to be styling.
Tanya Ling is based in London but was born in Calcutta. She moved to Paris after studying at St. Martin’s School of Art to design for Christian Lacroix. Her beautiful work is created with a mixture of ink, watercolour and nail varnish and she has been comissioned by Harrods, Selfridges and fashion labels; Jil Sander, Diane Von Furstenberg and Louis Vuitton’s cruise collection 2009.
The evening will also screen rarely seen films from the British Film Institute archive, an installation by set designer Petra Storrs and an exclusive glimpse into tailoring with the Savile Row Bespoke Association.
The event will take place on Friday the 25th of September from 6.30pm-10pm.
