Jez Eaton's Trashion Show

 Jez Eaton is a Brighton based artist who has been delighting the Brighton community with her amazing makeup and costume designs since her return from Europe in 2007. She is now taking centre stage and is shaking up this year’s Brighton Fashion Week.

‘Trashion Show' is an unusual but beautiful collection of garments created out of everyday household items, packaging etc. and set into scene with imagination and a splash of humour. Umbrellas become ball gowns, sanitary towels are lovingly stitched together and made into 1950s swing dresses, tampons, plastic bags, loo brushes...

Vivienne Westwood CAFÉ SOCIETY , Paris 1994


Created during a period in which Vivienne Westwood was exploring 19th Century France and particularly Paris, Cafe Society (Spring/Summer 1994) was an extravagant and critically applauded catwalk show. Featuring clothing inspired by the paintings of 17th Century artist Van Dyck, the show also paid homage to the couturier Charles Worth, the British designer who dominated French fashion at the end of the 19th Century.

Huge, 'too big for a normal catwalk' gowns glided across the specially commissioned, one-off leopard print carpet in the ballroom of ‘Le Grand Hotel’ in Paris in front of a star studded audience which included John Paul Gaultier, Michael Hutchence and John Galliano.

 Enjoy the show...
