Vintage Fashion Show raising money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma

CC TITLE_Closet insider

Closet Case went up to Leeds this weekend to help raise some money for a very important cause, Leukaemia and Lymphoma research. The charity is dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for blood cancers. There was a fabulous vintage fashion show showing clothes from through the eras from the 1920's to the 1980's all from Space vintage and with some impressive hair by Toni & Guy.One of the models, Faye Archer, recently successfully finished treatment for a Lymphoma. Faye only discovered she was suffering from Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes, when she developed an eye infection from her new make-up. Leukaemia and the most common cancer in children and teenagers.

Here are some pictures from the show....

Don't worry you won't have to walk home half naked as you'll be wearing your freebie outfit if you're one of the lucky 100.

Fingers crossed the sun is out and there's no rain otherwise it could be a chilly wait outside, or, if you're a northerner and tend to shy away from wearing a jacket in hail, rain or shine then you should be well prepared for the challenge.

Off Key - Jaime Winstone

New exhibition OFF-KEY explores designer’s role in enabling people to express themselves through fashion. In the first of a series of exhibitions, 27 year old stylist Julianna Sseruwagi-Nisbett focuses in on Italian fashion brand Moschino, who for 30 years have made clothes which appeal to the inner city and affluent suburbs alike. Nisbett who is represented by Annin Arts looks to reflect the brands diversity through a series of 37 photographs of people wearing items of Moschino.

The people featured in the exhibition range from actresses and footballers, to grime artists and models, including the likes of Daisy Lowe, Jaime Winstone, Micachu, Eliza Doolittle and Kate Nash.

The photographs have been shot by Linus Morales, Tom Beard, Alex Harley and Joe Miranda and are intended to reflect the subjects varied styles and personalities.

The photographs intentionally have no text relating to which item of Moschino the subject is wearing, this is because Nisbett wanted people to appreciate the beauty in the clothes, the way they are worn and for each individual to interpret the photograph in their own way. Essentially the exhibition is like a lost advertising campaign; a campaign which would never exist as those chosen are unlikely to be in keeping with Moschino’s ‘brand’ however this is Nisbett own interpretation of Moschino the designer.
