Alternative Fashion Week

The last few days of Alternative Fashion Week are on at Spitalfields.

The event, which features designers from around the world, is hosting market stalls and fashion shows at the popular Spitalfields market near Liverpool Street.

There’s a fashion show which kicks off at 1:15pm each day, showcasing 14 different designers.  The Really Tight Corsettes will be accompanying the models with their live jazz.

The market itself runs from 11am-5pm – so plenty of time to have a wander round and see what’s on offer.  The event is free, and includes a programme featuring all the designers. The event ends on Saturday.
