SECRET EMPORIUM // WINTER EDITION
CHRISTMAS // MARKET // DECEMBER 2013
Our annual Winter Edition held at the Nicholls & Clarke building was a roaring success with thousands streaming through the door daily.
Showcasing over 50 British Independent Designers hand-selected and lovingly curated against a backdrop of performance, art installations and food, this years cache ranged from women's wear to illustration, men's wear to accessories and homewear to art, all from independent British labels.
For each SE event 2 scholarships places are awarded to young designers starting their labels. The first of this years scholars is Strange-loop, a Hackney based jewellery designer who has previously showcased work at alternative fashion week. Then we have K & J, two illustrators who met at Central St Martins ten years ago, after years of working on in the set design industry they will be showcasing their first accessories collection made at their very own vinyl print workshop.
Other Designers included:
Jewellery 'designer of the year' finalist 'Jessica de Lotz.' 'Rosita Bonita' & 'E. A Burns' both with exciting new collections. 'Margaux Clavel' (previous SE scholar) & 'Tawn' both emerging designers to watch. The decidedly cosmic 'Magnetic Zeros' with apparel & 'Only Child' with jewellery, 'Workhouse' & 'Sir Plus' who both create structured men's wear with roots in traditional tailoring.
The macabre but beautiful from 'Kim Zoe Wagner Custom Taxidermy' and knitwear from exciting emerging designer 'Giannina Capitani.' Jewellery classics from the well respected and well collected: 'Alexa De Castilho,' 'Coops,' 'Tessa Metcalfe Jewellery,' 'DianeTurner' & 'Kate Gilliand Jewellery.' Not to mention just the right amount of SE eccentricity from 'Lady Gonzalez.'
