21.11.2015 | Art , Blog , Culture | BY:

Everyone likes winning things. Even those who give off the most authentic air of indifference to life, love winning things. It is with that in mind, then, that we sound the drum-roll and let you know about the brilliant Banner Repeater Fundraiser, which is happening as we speak.

For just £5, you will be entered into a lottery to win some amazing prints, publications and multiples from the enviable Banner Repeater portfolio. These include, but are not limited to: Turner Prize winners, British Art Show 2015 artists, and more, such as Hannah Sawtell, Laure Prouvost, Jesse Darling, Benedict Drew, John Russell, Erica Scourti, Emma Hart, Elizabeth Price, Critical Hand Gestures, and there are also some highly collectible BANK tabloids, too.

So what’s this all in aid of, then? Well, creativity. And the space to exhibit it. As we’ve previously mentioned – and we all know far too well – continued budget cuts to arts funding mean that the visibility of challenging work in public spaces is under threat, and places like Banner Repeater are having to do things like this, in order to survive. Let’s all help them, shall we?

All you have to do is take a simple cyber jaunt over to their website, here, and click to buy yourself a ticket. The lottery will then be pulled on 4 December at a fabulous party, with a DJ set by Paul Purgas. This will all take place at L’Entrepot, 230 Dalston Lane, London, E8 1LA (next door to Hackney Downs train station).

So what are you waiting for? Enter now, go to a party, have fun, maybe win something really fucking cool and support art. It’s a no brainer.

Find Banner Repeater on Platform 1 at Hackney Downs Rail Station, Dalston Lane, Hackney, E8 1LA. They’re open: Tue-Thu 8-11am, Fri 8am-6pm; Sat-Sun noon-6pm.

Fashion Sunday

30.05.2014 | Culture , Fashion | BY:

On Sunday 1st June, East London’s Oval Space will become home to a new kind of monthly fashion market. Fashion Sunday’s aim is to bring together some of the most exciting emerging and established designers London has to offer. It gives consumers the chance to shop direct from the brand, which means you can enjoy up to 20% off the current season price, larger discounts on past seasons as well as find one off samples. Each month you will find a differerent selection of designers setting up shop (the initial focus is on womenswear) and all have been handpicked by the curators. Fashion Sunday will also be giving away a stall each month to a start up of their choice – this time the lucky designer is Luke Brooks. You can expect to find a rich exploration of London’s diverse scene, including names such as Draw in Light, Auria, Paper LDN, Emma Shipley, Larissa Hadjio, Yolke, Estefania Cortes Harker, Kult Domini, Henriette Lofstrom, Hanger Inc and Hellespont.

Not only can you settle your design needs but you will also find a great place to relax and enjoy the view of Hackney’s skyline. With Pop Up Barbados serving up Bajan treats on the terrace, Blackbox offering a unique ‘coffee spritzer’ and Shake Rattle Stir mixing up colourful cocktails in the main room, there’s plenty to experience.

“There’s a real appetite for independent, homegrown fashion and this new platform means we can share these designers’ work with more people,” says Tiffany Alwis, joint owner and curator of Fashion Sunday. “Working with them and other likeminded local partners across food, music, and the arts, once a month we showcase a unique edit of just some of the great stuff this city has to offer.”

Entry costs £3 and includes a complimentary copy of the bespoke Fashion Sunday newspaper.
