Last chance to see Iain R Webb’s Drawing Fashion (or watch this online talk)

Excuse me – where did July go?

It has zipped past in a flash and with it, Iain R Webb’s DRAWING FASHION: sketchbooks from the edge of the catwalk exhibition at Drawing Projects UK.

The show, which delves into 40 years of fashion history via Webb’s fashion show sketchbooks (alongside his notebooks and ephemera) ends this weekend, but for those of us unable to reach Trowbridge, here’s an unmissable free online talk that he is doing this evening.

If you don’t know Webb, here’s a little glimpse into his early life as a post-punk fashion student and club kid prior to his years as a fashion editor at Blitz magazine, The Times, Harpers & Queen and Elle. There’s a lot more to him than that actually; he has also been a photographer, a curator and a brand consultant. And of course, author of numerous books including As Seen in Blitz, Marc Jacobs Unseen and the phenomenal Rebel Stylist.

If you’re interested in fashion shows, sketchbooks, designer goss and the role of drawing as a means of recording and communicating, then I urge you to join the online talk (6pm BST today). Webb’s talks are never boring – I nearly shed a tear at the end of one I watched last year! Even better, if you can make it to the IRL exhibition, do go (11am-4pm Friday and Saturday only). You’ll come away fired up with inspo and can also take away a fab mini newspaper/programme. More info here and here.
