Fancy Rewinding to the 80’s?

24 11 2009

Over the summer i took my narrow boat on a journey of discovery to Henley-on-Thames. Not just an idle jaunt, it was in fact to visit the 80’s Rewind Festival with a couple of friends.

Between 20-24th April 2009, Spitalfield’s Market was host to the London Alternative Fashion week.

I covered the event for Strawberry Earth and spoke with designers Wilfried Pletzinger and Holly Dutton.  We got some great shots of the event and some interesting answers from the designers – have a look at the video from the Eco Fashion event at Spitalfields
