Harvey Nichols Secret Tees: the big reveal

Thanks to everyone who bid on the wonderful one-off Secret Tees produced by some of the country’s best creative talent. Now I can reveal who designed what for Harvey Nichols’ Fashion’s Night Out auction, with all proceeds going to my favourite charity, Kid’s Company…

This is a good opportunity to mention some of the projects that a couple of the designers are working on. David David has a pop-up shop in Covent Garden’s Monmouth Street (below) selling everything from his prints to beanbags, badges, umbrellas and – obviously – his tee-shirts.

Downstairs in the gallery space, he will be curating a few artists-in-discussion talks including Susie Bubble in conversation with Julie Verhoeven on 13th October, Eley Kishimoto’s Mark Eley on 18th October and Rhonda Drakeford and Lulu Roper-Caldbeck from Darkroom on 19th October. For details, contact [email protected].

On the subject of Darkroom, the lifestyle store is working with illustrator/filmmaker Quentin Jones on Haunted, a window installation that arrives in time for Halloween, from 26th October to 6th November. If you don’t know Quentin’s work, I urge you to check out her site, where you can delight in her many cut-and-paste projects from Another magazine fashion shoots to Chanel’s genius beauty animations.

I met Dr Noki (AKA JJ Hudson) at London Fashion Week for the first time on his stand in the Esthetica section. An early adopter of upcycling and sustainable fashion ethics, he insisted his Secret Tee be fashioned from organic cotton (of course we complied). His shop 123 Boutique follows the same principles. A Dr Noki creation mixes punk, poetry and politics to beautiful effect – here’s a glimpse of his Fashion East installation at LFW men’s day
