Edinburgh’s first ever ‘Pop-up” Stitch Lounge : 21st & 22nd May 2011, 10am-10pm
As part of the ‘No Concessions’ fashion season at Inspace, the Stitch Lounge is taking over the laboratory, bringing ‘makers’ and ‘players’ together for one weekend only to create some fast fashion. We’ve patterns at the ready, 10 Singer sewing machines raring to go, plus hundreds of meters of white fabric and a ton of clothes to customise. Everyone is encouraged to join in, experiment and get those little hands busy.
Punctuating the weekend, and just in time for Afternoon Tea too, the Stitch Lounge will host informal round table discussions by fashion industry specialists on Saturday and Sunday at 4:00 pm. Work in progress will go on display at 8:00 pm on Saturday 21st, and then on Sunday 22nd at 8:00 pm the weekend will conclude with an off-the-wall runway show, bubbly and live music. The shows about to start…
Supported by Singer. Part of the ‘No Concessions’ fashion|technology season.
