I was invited to a rather unique get together the other night which was designed to act act as a platform to showcase independent fashion brands within the Manchester area. The night was hosted at The Ruby Lounge in Manchester’s trendy Northern Quarter and featured stilt-walkers, fire jugglers, burlesque performers, DJs, MCs and music.
The fashions were sustainable, bespoke, some were street/urban and others were bridal/vintage. Both menswear and womenswear was presented and I was surprised to find some new brands that I will be buying from in future.
I got given this T-Shirt from Caroline, the designer behind Munkispanner, and I love it. Munkispanner is a Manchester based online boutique for British subculture clothing speciailising in those that feel happy in any one of the following taxonomies: mod, ska, skinhead, scooterist, retro or northern soul. It also welcomes those that do not identify with these tribes but just like well made pieces, sourced ethically and made in Britain. Lovely.
