PREEN served breakfast in bed – with Daphne Self, the oldest supermodel in the world tucked up with her family of models, among the silken Preen bedding installation, while Greta Bellamacina walked among the audience reciting a poem @preenbythorntonbregazzi AHARON GENISH gave a palpably emotive show, clearly inspired by his own life journey, born into a strict orthodox Jewish family and ejected from home once he hit his early teens and discovered he was gay. As someone who is influenced by his ultra-Orthodox past, Ganish takes traditional Jewish elements, from all over the world, east and west, that carry a conservative character, dismantle them into elements, and embroider a work from them with a personal, postmodernist and original perspective. In this way, Ganish transforms conservative items from different historical periods into edgy and unique fashion.
The transformation that the old clothes undergo with the new subjective angle transforms his collections into works of a poetic and romantic nature, while at the same time maintaining the value and respect for the values of history and tradition @ahrongenish GEORGIA HARDINGE sent her signature pleats down the runway, with Scottish supermodel Eunice Olumide opening as a mermaid in glistening green and Daisy Lowe closing as the bride in white.
ANYANGO sent a group of activist women friends, including Aja Barber, Orsola de Castro, Dr Shola Moss and Kelly Knox, down her runway, with messages of sisterhood and solidarity by feminist poet Mumbi – the mother of the Gikuya people – intertwined with uplifting music by Shingai Shoniwa @anyangompinga
HOUSE OF JAFFA was established by Golan Frydman (of FYODOR GOLAN) and Eddie Gavrillidis, during the lockdown when they left London for Tel Aviv seeking a new life, and made their home in the district of Jaffa. Inspired by the _”the strong perfumes of the souk mixing with sweat and desire under the hot Mediterranean sun, House of Jaffa explores being Queer in the Middle East as celebration of the beauty of the outsider and aims to create an escapist and romantic mosaic of visuals and emotions. The social conceptions of masculinity – both appealing and toxic – are challenged into an unapologetic aesthetic.” _@house_of_jaffa
