Fashion Show
(In Aid of ACORNS)

Indie fashion brand HME Creations are taking over the Sidney Stringer  Academy in Coventry on Saturday to present their latest designs, expect bold prints with a distinct african influence and detailed tailoring over an array of designs for women, men and also their charming and unique accessories.

We know a number of independent fashion designers and their talk is that that road is a tough one to follow, Damian Marquez for example, a brilliant award winning designer with a very unique eye, from Mexico, now located in Birmingham in the UK, even he is on a kind of hiatus from the frontlines of fashion right now. 

It’s not all doom and gloom even in the UK. People like HME Creations are writing their own rules, creating their own spaces and pushing their design boundaries. Elsewhere Vogue in the UK has hired it’s first black editor, Edward Enninful, formerly the youngest fashion editor at i-D; America’s Teen Vogue editor is the brilliant Elaine Welteroth, and just this week there was a major feature in the media about the super amazing, Grace Wales Bonner. and we always love the style of Ozwald Boateng despite the vagaries of fashion and the question of whether he is hip right now since his plan for world domination is somewhat on the skids. That I am too fat for his suits is my problem. But the backstory and ambition and that American TV show which we enjoyed so much - all the greatest.

HME are pushing forward, undaunted by the headwinds of a tough tough industry, bolstered by the tailwinds of their incredible creativity. 

The proceeds from this weekends show will be donated to the children’s charity ACORNS.
