First Part

Dash Magazine Issue 2 Launch Party

On Wednesday, 12th September I was invited to attend the launch of DASH Magazine‘s September Issue which is dedicated to The Architecture of Fashion. The event held at Press Play Films, 10 Vyner Street, London, E2 9DG, from 7pm-11pm. DJs Piers Martin (Cocadisco) and Florian Oh (Red Bull Music Academy) was providing music on the night. The event is kindly sponsored by Jameson, Peroni, Zeitgeist, Ty Nant, TINALILIENTHAL, Ena Salon and Nail Rock and curated by Ryan Lanji.
Since launching during London Fashion Week last February, DASH Magazine has established itself as the pinnacle source of inspiration for fashion artists worldwide. Illustrating fashion with a celebratory, yet critical mindset and a mix of established and emerging illustrators, photographers and writers, DASH combines the old with the new, the traditional with the progressive.
Recently awarded with the prestigious Deutsche Bank Award for Creative Enterprises in the Fashion Category, this latest issue of DASH examines The Architecture of Fashion by breaking the industry down into its building blocks and shining a light on some of its most esteemed figures and integral features. The magazine investigates the policies of Fashioning the Front Row and discusses Coding Systems in Fashion. Grand couturier Jean Paul Gaultier opens up in an exclusive interview for our Retrospect section and ‘Master of Fashion Illustration’ David Downton explains why he is celebrating The Gig of the Century.
With an increased print run of 25,000 copies, DASH will be available from selected newsagents and booksellers worldwide from mid-September 2012. Copies will be provided to leading industry professionals – especially those commissioning illustration, because we feel this is an art form worth preserving in a digital age.
