Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A, featuring some of the greatest designers from across the world. It brings haute couture to a wider audience in the Museum’s magnificent Raphael Gallery. Next Friday, 21st October, Fashion in Motion: House of Holland, will showcase some of the label’s key looks from the past 10 years – from the iconic t-shirts that launched House of Holland in 2006 and the tartan eyepatch in 2008, to the raving grandma-inspired collection for AW11, as well as elements from recent shows.

London’s is a melting pot of cultures, and its diverse sense of identity is what inspires Henry Holland’s work every single day. After graduating from the London College of Printing, with a BA in Journalism, he became known in 2006 with his irreverent fashion groupies’ slogan t-shirts, featuring catchphrases such as ‘UHU GARETH PUGH’ and ‘GET YOUR FREAK ON GILES DEACON’, which name-checked his contemporaries in the London fashion world. Only two years later, in 2008, House of Holland was on the London Fashion Week catwalk, gaining critical acclaim.

According to Oriole Cullen, V&A Fashion Curator, “Designer Henry Holland’s joyous blend of finely crafted fabrics and colourful prints celebrate the dynamic, irreverent sensibility of ‘London Girl’ style.”

Sagardi: Pleasures of the Flesh

SEEN was reminded of what a privilege it is to meet chefs and butchers who are truly passionate and single-minded about the food they prepare and cook. Thus it was at Sagardi in Shoreditch, where the ravenous foodie press was assembled earlier this week, to witness the butchery of, and subsequent cooking over a splendid barbecue grill, of a side of ox.
