State Of Independenz

With the launch of Indian Vogue, a new Wes Anderson film, The Darjeeling Limited and numberous festivities celebrating 60 years of Indian independence, India is in focus right now. What’s to bet that autumn/winter 08 will be heavily influenced by all things South Asian? To whet your appetite, London College of Fashion is running State Of Independenz, a guest speaker programme during October and November featuring fashion designers Osman Yousefzada, Ashish and Manish Arora, alongside a host of photographers, artists and writers of Indian descent. To book a place at one of these talks, visit

    Let’s see…for right now, I’m a little circumspect about all the hype, and Manish Arora’s kistchiness will never hit my soft spots (I loved it when he toned it down for AW 07-08 in London, though- it was cool instead of being campy).
    Do post about what the talks are like if you attend any, please?

    Manish Arora is really hyped by Hilary Alexander. She loves him. I haven’t really warmed up to him yet…I am SO curious about the talks. Do tell (post)…
