SEEN is very excited about the Floom and Sunspel floral dye workshop at the London EDITION on Sunday 25th September 2016. Hosted by special guest Cara Marie Piazza of Calyx, who is a Natural Dye expert and Textile Designer based in New York City; she is committed to sustainable and ethical production, and creates unique textiles, using natural dye sources such as botanicals, plant matter, minerals and food wastes.

The masterclass will take place at the London EDITION hotel, located in central London’s Fitzrovia, where you’ll be surrounded by the extraordinary style that emanates from the integrity and character of such a historic building, blended with a simple, sophisticated design sensibility. You’ll learn how to use the ‘bundle dye method’, which will be demonstrated on one of Sunspel’s premium 100% long staple cotton T-shirts. Each guest will hand-dye their own, creating a truly unique piece of clothing.

Sunspel is known for making the finest quality luxury wardrobe staples, and has a long history of using natural plant dyes such as indigo or woad. Floom is a dynamic new online destination for beautifully curated flowers and plants. Both share a love for artisanal craft and natural materials and have come together through shared values of craftsmanship and quality.

What a great opportunity to participate in an exciting workshop in a dynamic social hub where you’ll be able to work, relax, socialise and learn about the art of floral bundle-dyeing with expert Cara Marie Piazza. Don’t miss it!
Sunday, 25th September 2016 from 14:00 to 18:00 (BST)

Blacklock City: Underground Meat

SEEN had the good fortune of dining at Blacklock City recently. Just off East Cheap in the heart of the city, it was packed with city workers enjoying the chop-based menu. Indeed there was so much meat that SEEN felt positively Falstaffian, half-expecting her meal to be borne to the table on a trencher.

Matty Bovan: DIY Instinct

As a delightful contrast to haute couture and certainly an antidote to dullness in all its guises, the playful, DIY aesthetic currently emboldening much London style can be seen in the work of Matty Bovan. Though based in Yorkshire, the digital world in which we live ensures that Matty’s instinctual, textile-led style is having an influence in the capital.

Will and Grace Set to Return in New Series

SEEN is already mixing the martinis in anticipation of a show that, according to some, advanced LGBTQ+ acceptance into the mainstream, as no other. Yes, Will Grace, and Karen are back! Their fabulous trailer mercilessly mocks the whole concept of a ‘comeback’ with the show’s trademark sniping, undermining, play on words, ‘It means AirBoy-on-Boy!’ and even a barnstorming Broadway-style number.
