There is no bull but the Red Bull Factory Party….

IMG_8075

Yes sir, the parties were flowing during London Fashion Week after the catwalk shows.  One of the events we attended was The Red Bull Factory Party off Oxford Street.  The fashionistas were out in rare form, the artist Estelle was spinning the tables and Mr. Hudson graced us with his appearance.  The Red Bull drinks were pouring and the music was bumping.  Here are some pics from the festivities.

Can we all be friends….

Well now its your chance to be part of the “Friends” crew.  I know it may be a random post but not all of us can just hop on a plane and fly to NYC especially when BA is charging additional fee for “friends and family” to sit together which is absurd but hey, for only 2 weeks, head down to Soho and check out the pop-up version of the infamous cafe.  So come on, can we all just be “Friends.”  From 24 Sept-7 Oct, Location: 67 Broadwick Street, W1F

Style City…How London Became A Fashion Capital

Today is the official launch.  Ranking alongside Paris, New York and Milan as a global fashion capital, and it has produced such outstanding designers as John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan and Stella McCartney. Style City tells, for the first time, the story of how that came about, describing how fashion developed in Britain from the early 1970s, when designer fashion scarcely existed, to the present day.

The story is told largely through interviews with the and opinion-shapers of the time, among them Paul Smith, Philip Treacy, Jasper Conran, Bruce Oldfield, Betty Jackson, Wendy Dagworthy and Antonio Berardi. Ravishingly illustrated, the book includes photographs by David Bailey, Barry Lategan, Chris Moore and other leading designers and fashion photographers, as well as many from the designers’ own archives ~ press release

The Fashbashsoundclash….

My parties with DJ Nikki are always super- fun, this is the main ingredient that we wanted to bring back to Ldn when we started Fashbashsoundclash a year ago. This London Fashion Week we decided on our venue very late but settled on the City Arts & Music Project in East London as it had space to hang artwork for our exhibition in conjunction with State Of Play Magazine, an art & culture magazine based in East London. We wanted this Fashbash to be an amalgamation of art, music & fashion and the crowd as always pulled off the fashion, we rocked the music and the artists work was fantastic.


The Theme for the Fashbashsoundclash London Fashion Week Party this Sept was ‘It Came From London’ based on our Beatnik track by the same name which Wale used for his last Bside collection (check out the new video & collection on my youtube page).



I did a piece myself which was hung along with around 15-20 other pieces by local London Artists.  NIKI BEATNIK acrylic & mixed media on canvas ‘IT CAME FROM LONDON’


State Of Play’s new issue was also formed around this theme, titled ‘The Other London’ and artists were asked to contribute their interpretation of what London meant to them.  Here are some of the pictures from the general shennanigans…Fashbashsoundclash Forever! 🙂 Thanks to:State of Play Magazine
Helen, Kaja, Tia, Paz, DJ Six3, DJ Nimble fingerz, Statis, Jolene & everyone who came. We love you.





































Flying higher…..

Well since London Fashion Week as officially arrived, it has been some long days and nights with the preview of fashion, catwalk shows, parties and exhibitions.  Trying to balance in between can be time consuming but no worries, we will be on track.  Even though this week is mainly womens S/S2010 collections, this season, the MAN show should be exciting.  One full day dedicated to menswear including exhibitions and catwalks.  So keep an eye out, stay in tune for the latest, the website should be launching and hope you enjoyed yourself if you attended our party.

Its fresh and clean, the “Bionic” capsule by Pharrell

Yes sir we luv.  The collection was launched the other day in the temporary 1969 Gap pop-up shop in London’s Carnaby Street.  Made of out bionic fibers from recycled plastic bottles, the artist collaboration is simple, clean and fresh.  Grey hoodies, khaki trousers and white trainers, bags (only one style) and t-shirts in check. Only open for 19 days and 69 hours, make sure you visit the shop before it closes.  PS. the trainers and bag should arrived by next Tuesday the latest so still plenty of time to save those pennies, pences, coins or notes.
