We are totally excited by top fashion designer, and “Eastend Neighbour” Christopher Kane who’s offices are also based in good ‘ol Dalston.
Christopher will be showcasing his Autumn/Winter range at London Fashion Week, on the 21st Feburary at midday.
Last year Christopher’s fabulous neon inspired catwalk show made us reach back inside our wardrobe for that forgotten about lime green summer dress ready for when the weather warms up.
Other features on his catwalk included mixing bright Orange and Pink in a jacket and skirt combo and many different print styles which could of been inspired by the SassiPR branding…… maybe Christopher took his creative direction from our sassy ‘S’ logo.
Our Eastend neighbour has an impressive CV, he studied at Central Saint Martins for 6 years whilst interning at Giles Deacon and Russell Sage. After graduating Christopher immediately started his own label, only to then become best friends with Donatella Versace who he worked with to recreate the ‘Versus’ line. Everything he has done appears to have turned to gold.
Alexa Chung did a great interview with Christopher in this month’s issue of Vogue. Clearly, from the article we’re not the only ones who are fans of Christopher, did you know he designed the outfit for Kylie Minogue in the music video for ‘2 hearts’?
We think Christopher Kane will be a household name by the end of 2011. We will have to get intouch with him to see if he would like to join us for lunch one day at our local Turkish pancake house… yummy!
