A MARTINE ROSE HOMAGE

Fascinated by gender blur, the menswear designer Martine Rose continues to explore the boundaries of boy/girl; using fabrics and details traditionally associated with womenswear and stretching the extremities of the male silhouette.

Looking to subculture, sportswear or her musical heroes (Rick James, Prince, Mark E. Smith) for stylistic starting points, her references shift each season but her refusal to be constrained by a fixed masculinity is an ongoing theme.

Thanks to all those who took part in our “Fast Fashion 2d mix Fix” project on Saturday and for giving us your best “fashion” versions.  

A 2d life size collage mash up introduction to the some of London’s newest and coolest designers. Slashstroke put together an overview of key pieces and style hits from the season in life size illustrations and invited the public to create their own FAST FASHION 2D MIX FIX. Participants were photographed in their own 2d collage mash up creating a unique and dynamic fashion image.

Our project was part of series of events, workshops and performances organised by Barbican in association with Create London. Presenting Ram Place Fashion Market, a fashion-led event at the heart of the Morning Lane area of Hackney, encompassing a street market, a pop-up café-bar and event space located in an adjacent derelict building transformed by curator Jeffrey Horsley. Ram Place Fashion Market is part of the Beyond Barbican offsite programme that reflects the Barbican’s long history of programming in partnerships with artists and organisations in east London.

SLASHSTROKE THAT! MAGAZINE AND EXHIBITION STAND FOR WSA/GFW/2014

Images by Slashstroke

Winchester School of Art commissioned Slashstroke to design and produce their exhibition stand and magazines for Graduate Fashion week 2014. Accommodating Fashion and Textile design and Fashion Marketing the stand and publications had to work on multiple levels to showcase a very diverse range of work.  This year WSA opted for a more encompassing representation for the courses with the magazines featuring successful alumni and post graduates  alongside interviews and articles with current staff and students, the combined effect suggesting an energetic and industry engaged University.

For Slashstroke the opportunity translate 2d into 3d in terms of graphics and spatial interaction was an exciting challenge, below are some of the results.

Slashstroke worked with BUILD IS EVERYTHING to produce the stand.

/- #CFA DAY @FASHION SPACE GALLERY / 5 HOURS / 1 ISSUE / MAKE STUFF HAPPEN.

Image by slash stroke

Yesterday  Slashstroke took over the Fashion Space Gallery for a day of Campaigning for Fashion Activism, a workshop in making stuff happen, playing with loose statements and cheap slogans, a project exploring group dynamic and creative output. Concept, production and output, begun and finished in 5 hours, a campaign without a real cause, a manifesto for the sake of it, a direction because momentum feels good.  A reaction to fast fashion and loose contexts.

During the day we produced large scale graphic templates/layouts for a Zine  on which everyone involved could design content. Through collage, statement making, image making, photography and cut and paste all participants contributed to the production of #CFA ZINE. The original draft copy is now in the Gallery but we will be making more copies available soon. Keep a look out.

There ended up being a lot of  TITS and “SCREW YOU FASHION”, so we were pleased to see that good taste and fashion aesthetics are as subjective as ever.

Special thanks to all those involved in the day and to Polona Dolzan and Ligaya Salazar at the Fashion Space Gallery.
