Friday 27th Nov: House Of Organza



When Kim Howells commissioned me to make something out of organza for a project set in the shop space  "VOGUE" fabrics and listed off the other collaborators.........it immediatly triggered off my imagination thinking back to Paris is Burning and the VOGUE balls.........thus lets call ourselves House of Organza?!.........then she told me that for the opening they plan to cover the face of the house in fabric........so literally creating a HOUSE OF ORGANZA.........est voila!  Its titled.........and its got a good ring to it hasn't it?
So who's in the collective?...........Craig Lawrence, Atalanta Weller, Piers Atkinson, Gloved-Up, NOKI, Judy Blame and yours truly..........that sounds like a riot already!  We have all created a one-off piece from a roll of ruffled organza sewn by Lyall Hakaraia (who is the head honcho of Vogue Fabrics).  These looks have been styled by Kim Howells in a shoot with Mari Sarai and the final prints will be exhibited alongside video footage of the process at the opening next Thurs.  So if you are on a 73 or 149 bus crawling down Kingsland Road and you see a house that looks like an architectual answer to a snow ball............this is the explanation.
If you can't wait until next week, you can visit VOGUE tonight for our fundraiser event to help us get some quids in for putting on the show.  There will be performances by Ryan Styles, Feral and Cara Park..............
