article imageForest Hill Fashion Week is coming 15-19 February Special

Forest Hill - Before Christmas last year we reported on The Shop Revolution in Sydenham. Now, the people behind that have come up with Forest Hill Fashion Week.
Sydenham's neighbour Forest Hill is slightly nearer Central London, and on February 15 it comes into its own as Louise Brooks and her team launch Forest Hill Fashion Week.
The people behind this project certainly don't lack for enthusiasm. In addition to SEE3 Markets and the community hub Jill on Sydenham Road, another is soon to open in Forest Hill called Jack.
According to Louise: “Forest Hill has become a hub for designer-makers and fashionable boutiques in recent years and so it is an ideal time to stage a celebration of local design talent and style. And of course the event will see the opening of our latest pop up shop SEE Boutique on Dartmouth Road with pop up tenants Love Ur Look selling their fabulous reproduction vintage outfits.”
It is as yet too early to report on the future of their pop-up shop project in neighbouring Sydenham, but they are predicting a busy few days with this new launch including events taking place in participating boutiques such as Bunka, Stag & Bow and Doopo Doopo; parties and catwalk shows in the bars and restaurants, and a range of workshops and activities in an as yet unopened café-gallery and shop at The Montage on Dartmouth Road.
Who will be there apart from Louise and her team? According to the lady herself, Mary Jane Baxter the author of Chic On A Shoestring will be running workshops to demonstrate how old clothes can be given a new lease of life, while local couture designer Katharine Harrison will be putting in an appearance, on February 19 at Canvas And Cream. She will also be exhibiting her work at London Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week shows.
Full details of Forest Hill Fashion Week and related projects can be found on The Shop Revolution website.
