Located in heart of East London’s creative hub, with three iconic fashion boutiques along Rivington Street, Start London are delighted to take part once again in the Shoreditch Design Triangle and this year will be teaming up with dynamic London based designer Julian Mayor.
The Shoreditch Design Triangle 2014 is set to be the biggest street by street event during this year’s London Design Festival. In it’s 6th consecutive year, the event brings together a fascinating assortment of designers, stores, galleries, studios, cafes, bars, brands and one-off events for a week of design-led festivities.
Taking place in the START Menswear boutique, renowned for their unparalleled edit of eminent designer brands including Comme des Garcons, Acne, Maison Martin Margiela, Kenzo, AMI, Matthew Miller, COMMON and more, the collaboration with designer and artist Julian Mayor will showcase a bespoke installation, exclusive to the store along with pieces from Mayor’s current body of work.
Julian Mayor is inspired by the sculptural possibilities of computers and the industrial craft making processes. Mayor graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2000 and moved to California where he began work as a design consultant. After several years abroad, he moved back to the UK where he became an East London local and continued his career as one of the area’s most innovative designers. Mayor’s designs have been shown at the V&A London, Rossana Orlandi Milan, FAT Galerie Paris and 21st21st New York.
Start will be hosting an evening of drinks and music to celebrate the union between fashion, art and design on Tuesday the 16th of September from 5pm – 8.30pm. Guests will be able to meet the designer and view the never before seen installation from Mayor created exclusively for the store, whilst perusing the new AW14 collections.
