Prior to receiving an invitation to last night's event, I have to admit that I had not heard of Dash magazine, as it only launched earlier this year. I am however a big fan of fashion illustration and fashion photography (having a David Downton poster for the V&A in my kitchen and a Tim Walker print in my bedroom) and was therefore thrilled to be invited and to find out about the magazine.
Last night's party was held in an industrial warehouse space on Vyner Street, home to pressplayfilms, with the magazine both physically suspended from orange ropes from the ceiling (as you can see in the photo above) and virtually suspended on tv screens and a projector, showcasing the content of the magazine. The suspended magazines shouted out to be examined - almost literally in one case as the momentum of people moving past kept causing it to bump into my shoulder.
We left with a lovely goody bag, containing a copy of the magazine, before heading onto another party in Shoreditch.
Thank you to Dash magazine for a lovely evening, and to my friend F for the kind invitation and introduction.
I am wearing an (old) sample dress by Teija Eilola (who else!) and chain mail necklace by Anathema Designs (it is made out of real armoury).
