Monday June 7th: Art Car Boot Fair
The day started with meeting Bishi on Brick Lane where she had just snapped up an exciting steal from a stall - a vintage Pam Hogg bra. We then headed to the Truman Brewery for the Art Car Boot Fair where amongst a car lot of artists was Pam Hogg with her own stall! So we managed to get an instant history to the garment and found out that it was from one of her first collections "Flower of Scotland" which she made for a group show with other designers and later sold to Harrods. I LOVE LONDON for days like this!

Navigating my way round this maze of motors I may have managed to miss the actual artists touting their wares such as Sir Peter Blake, Gavin Turk etc. but to be honest getting a signed Pam Hogg poster and watching the genius Marawa totally made my day................and weekend.
