London Fashion Week – BBC Your Label @ On|Off

I didn’t get many invites to shows at all during fashion week since I registered very late (not that I minded, I was happy just to be able to do everything else e.g. the exhibition as it was a big first for me). But I did manage to catch one that was going on as part of On|Off, sponsored by the BBC.

From the invitation email:
In a nutshell, the BBC have comprised a team of 10 young people (ages ranging 15 – 19) to create a collection which will be shown at London Fashion Week as part of On|Off. As well as a show at London Fashion Week, there will be a diffusion line of T Shirts with revenue going towards Children In Need. The progress will be televised for the BBC website and BBC3. We decided on the name 1.WO/MAN (said: One Woman One Man) for the name of the label as it emphasizes our creative direction with a youthful edge.

SO of course, here are photos from the night!

LOVE the shoes on this model
Unfortunately it was pretty tough getting a good photo during the catwalk show – I think they were in a race or something, everyone walked so quickly!
Anyhow all footwear used for the show were provided by Irregular Choice – good stufffff go check it out!

Awesome pants no?

For a bunch of teenagers I think they did a fantastic job. Everything ran smoothly and I actually liked most of the pieces they designed – they were all definitely very wearable and suited to the age group they were targetting (16 – 25)

Aindrea – she’s 15! – is one of the girls who helped organise this event, check out her blog for more info and behind-the-scenes pics!

One of the highlights of the night was meeting Patricia – whom I’d met the day before at the Bryce D’Anice Aime exhibit the day before – and Kristabel, the most amazing helpful girl (big THANK YOU again if you read this, you know what for 😉 )

And I loved that bit about multi-racial harmony! I’ve often said this among my friends, as we’re a very diverse group.
