You may be familiar with Red Bull Catwalk Studio which launched in 2011 to give emerging musicians the opportunity to work with fashion designers, and this January, they’ve teamed up with Fashion East Menswear Installations.
Fashion East has notably launched many of London’s top design talent in its quest to nurture and showcase emerging designers as part of its Menswear Installations initiative, with alumni including the likes of Meadham Kirchoff and Sibling. For Fall 2014, the installations include several handpicked emerging menswear designers being punted as ones to watch, such as the shirt maker Massimo Casagrande (below) and Nicomede Talavera, a talented Central Saint Martins graduate.
This season, the Red Bull Catwalk Studio has specially selected some of the best up and coming musicians to create made-to-measure mix tapes to play alongside the designers’ showcases. Selected artists include singer-songwriter Rudi Zygadlo and DJ-Remixer Ronika. The interrelation between fashion and music will always be highly intertwined, so combining the two together to promote up and coming talent within both fields is a perfect partnership.
