AUTUMN RESIDENTS
FUCK FASHION WEEK


Kicking off with a 'F**k Fashion Week' launch party held during Fashion Week (Wednesday 12th of Sept) at Queen of Hoxton, the residency will celebrate the diverse, bold and beautiful side of future-fashion. Designed to empower and inspire confidence, happiness and joy, this rebel September issue will be anything but skinny.

Celebrating our SuperCulture residents Doughnut Sexii Mama, Sinead O'Dwyer and Madam Storm's upcoming events series, we welcome you to the biggest Wednesday night in London. Event launch tickets available for £5 here.

Hosted by renowned drag artist Manolo Colonic, you are invited to an evening of comedy, music, burlesque and drag showing that, despite Donatella Versace and Karl Lagerfeld's best efforts, that fat, non-white, non-binary bodies exist and have always existed.

While you're here, visit Doughnut Sexii Mama's pop up shop and grab a free doughnut on her multi-coloured light up dance floor; and feel free to shout FUCK FASHION as you dance.

MADAM STORM

"MY MISSION IS TO HELP WOMEN ALL OVER THE WORLD, ONE STRUT AT A TIME" - MADAM STORM


What is fashion without a strut and a pair of high heels?

We are honoured to host international dominatrix, night-club performer and confidence coach, Madam Storm for our Fuck Fashion September residency. Turning heads and stopping conversation when you walk into a room is not about size or shape; it’s about the confidence that comes from your core. Did you know there were 5 ways to walk? Join Madam Storm in this special anniversary monthly series of Strut Masterclasses at the Queen of Hoxton; celebrating how to strut with elegance, grace, sass and confidence; all on our light up dance floor.

In keeping with Halloween vibes, on the 25th October, at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen Madam Storm invites you to meet her in an informal cabaret-style evening of storytelling and fun. Engage with her and she will share some of the rich and seminal events in her life. She will answer your questions about projecting confidence, attracting the right sort of attention, sex and sensuality, S&M and the art of seduction.

SINEAD O’DWYER

“I BECAME A BIT OBSESSED WITH THE IDEA OF INSERTING THE BODY INTO FASHION AGAIN IN A WAY THAT I FEEL IS KIND OF MISSING.” – SINEAD O’DWYER

From Dazed and i-D to Bjork, people are taking notice of our third resident, fashion designer Sinead O’Dwyer. Exploring how fashion can be used as a tool of self-love and self-loathing; creating fiberglass shell moulds for her graduate collection to explore the lack of body at the centre of how clothes are designed.

We are delighted to have Sinead join us for some unique workshops and panels exploring the questions around image distortion and fashion. Her first will be at Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen, on Sunday 21st October, for families. The workshop aims to introduce children and parents to thinking critically about what they are being fed visually in the media. Sign up for this unique event, which will use simple games and activities to get families thinking and experimenting with the power of media and representation.

Sinead will also hold a panel on the 20th November at The Book Club with fellow young designers and artists working in a post-instagram lens on fashion; and how body image is being moulded by sizing and gender constructs that just aren’t as relevant to a younger generation.
