On a glorious Saturday on the 10th August 2019, the second Barefashion Vegan Fashion Show took place at the Truman Brewery off Brick Lane. Heading up the styling of the show was Rebekah Roy, who’s worked with the likes of Kate Nash, Machine Gun Kelly, Oliver Proudlock and fashion industry icons Erin O’Connor, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kate Moss. She’s also a long term user of our steamers, so when she asked if we could take part, how could we say no?
It really was a glorious Saturday morning on Brick Lane. I completed my two favourite things before setting up – I got the world’s best parking space 50 metres from the venue and I ate a bagel (egg mayo and gherkin). It really was a morning of dreams.
Barefashion – Vegan Fashion Show
I got there super early and looked like a fantastic event already. It was all about the vegan – vegan fashion, vegan food and even vegan booze. Pretty vegan. Pretty good.
Vegan Fashion Show
I set up the f1500 high pressure steamer and filled the 3.8 litre water tank, which water should last all day without refilling (sorry for the subtle sales schpiel). Soon the designers started to arrive and get involved.
I took a couple of pics whilst trying to avoid photographing people getting changed. Most of the pictures are shots of steaming the same purple dress. I got out of the backstage area.
Being backstage is always a bit hectic, but there was free kombucha, so I grabbed one of those. I headed out to see some vegan stuff, meet some of the exhibitors and have a general mooch.
I met Hanna from Voodism, who was exhibiting her fancy vegan belt.
Clothes Steaming Time
But alas, enough mooching, because one of the two shows of the day was about to begin. Time to steam some clothes.
All was ready, including the purple dress. It was time for the vegan fashion show. Here are some of my favourite bits.
Awesome show right? And no souls destroyed. Excellent.
