Get Ready To Gorge On Fashion Popcorn's Visual Feast This Thursday

comments

300 400 Love fashion? Partial to popcorn? Well, listen up. As part of London Short Film Festival, the lovely people at Fashion Popcorn are hosting a cinematic shindig this Thursday at Hackney Picture House.

Set up by Emily and Harriet Fleuriot back in 2010, Fashion Popcorn is about creating a community of creative types from the worlds of fashion, film, and digital media — and anyone in the mood for a serious fashion geek-out. After all, if Who Are You, Polly Maggoo? taught us anything, it's that fashion and film go together like Ice-T and Coco — a little bizarre, but ultimately a perfect match.

This is Fashion Popcorn's sixth event, and Emily and Harriet promise to showcase a mix of short fashion films spanning everything from the outrageously far-out to classic, visual stunners.

We're liking the sound of Amina, by Duncan Bone, that documents a woman waking up to find the pair of shoes that reveal her true soul. Which is pretty much exactly how we'd feel if we woke up next to a new pair of Nicholas Kirkwoods.

After the visual fashion feast there's a Q&A with some of the film makers and then it’s straight up to the glorious Hackney Picture House Attic for a free tipple and party, where you can network your little designer socks off.

Where: Fashion Popcorn #6, Hackney Picturehouse, 270 Mare Street, E8 1HE
When: Tuesday January 8; film screenings start at 6:45 p.m., party starts at 8 p.m. Tickets: £10 (screening and party), £5 (party only).
