Spitafields, Crispin Place, Brushfield St, London, E1 6AA
London’s Alternative Fashion Week calls the attention of all fashion lovers! London is renowned for being the European city buzzing with creativity and innovation around every possible field. Fashion here is influenced by a mixture of traditions in transition, and over 80 design graduates and fashion designers from diverse backgrounds will exhibit their most original and avant-guard collections directly to representatives of the fashion industry, as well as the press and the public, aiming to make an impression. Fourteen designers a day will showcase their creations at daily lunch-time shows, which are accompanied with live contemporary jazz music.

Not only do all showcased garments promise to be distinctive and eclectic, they will also be inspired but this year’s Alternative Fashion Week’s sustainability theme which places a strong emphasis on recycled textiles, ethically sourced material and environmental awareness. This is to make a statement about the role of the fashion industry to shape global trends in sustainability and foster consciousness in environmental issues.
The whole event is completely free to attend and at the end of each lunch-time show it will be possible to purchase any of the items as they come off the catwalk. The Alternative Fashion Week is part of London’s Alternative Arts project, a publicly funded arts organization based in Spitafields, East London which invests in new artists and pioneering ideas, with a vision to make art more accessible.
Shows will be held at the Spitafields Traders Market; the closest tube station is Liverpool Street. East London, not far from Brick Lane and Shoreditch, is also one of London’s best areas for a night out. Displays take place from the 16 – 20 April 2012, between 11am – 5pm, where the stalls will be selling an exotic range of clothing, textiles and accessories and shows take place at 1.15pm.
The rich artistic content of the event guarantees a high level of enjoyment fit for people of all ages and backgrounds, whether you consider yourself a fashionista or a have no interest in fashion whatsoever. I truly recommend checking it out!
