(In Aid of ACORNS)
Indie fashion brand HME Creations are taking over the Sidney Stringer Academy in Coventry on Saturday to present their latest designs, expect bold prints with a distinct african influence and detailed tailoring over an array of designs for women, men and also their charming and unique accessories.
We know a number of independent fashion designers and their talk is that that road is a tough one to follow, Damian Marquez for example, a brilliant award winning designer with a very unique eye, from Mexico, now located in Birmingham in the UK, even he is on a kind of hiatus from the frontlines of fashion right now.
It’s not all doom and gloom even in the UK. People like HME Creations are writing their own rules, creating their own spaces and pushing their design boundaries. Elsewhere Vogue in the UK has hired it’s first black editor, Edward Enninful, formerly the youngest fashion editor at i-D; America’s Teen Vogue editor is the brilliant Elaine Welteroth, and just this week there was a major feature in the media about the super amazing, Grace Wales Bonner. and we always love the style of Ozwald Boateng despite the vagaries of fashion and the question of whether he is hip right now since his plan for world domination is somewhat on the skids. That I am too fat for his suits is my problem. But the backstory and ambition and that American TV show which we enjoyed so much - all the greatest.
HME are pushing forward, undaunted by the headwinds of a tough tough industry, bolstered by the tailwinds of their incredible creativity.
The proceeds from this weekends show will be donated to the children’s charity ACORNS.

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
