“The Live Issue takes the conventional pages of a magazine and brings them to life in 3D. Uniting fashion, film, music and art to create an experience that allows you to step inside the issue and explore the pages room by room".
Myself and Wafa (Sketchbook editor) will be hosting a stand along with some of the Sketchbook writers, who will be busy tapping away at their laptops and interviewing key guests such as Pam Hogg. We will also have our on-sight illustrator Gabriela Mot sketching the guests on the spot.
An intimate interview with Pam Hogg will be screened alongside key pieces from her collection and other short films and imagery. Designer Rachel Freire who presented at On/Off this LFW, will be there with Izzy Electric collaborating on a sound installation. The night will also hold an exclusive screening of Gabriel Gettman’s fashion film in collaboration with Bitchingandjunkfood.com and live art from illustrator Nikki Farquharson and print designer Marie Hill. The Live Issue illustration competition, in collaboration with Don’t Panic Magazine, offered budding illustrators the chance to design a print to be used on the goody bags and displayed in the Don't Panic exhibition room. Other things to look forward to are the interactive advertising room, featuring Commes Des Garcons ads and a Live DJ set from i-D magazine’s music editor, Princess Julia.
The Event is at The Future Gallery on Wednesday May 5th from 7-11pm and is invitation only. If you'd like to attend please contact email@example.com to be added to the guestlist.
