Here’s your DIVA rundown of the queerest fashion event in the UK…
BY SOPHIE GRIFFITHS
A showcase of fashion, identity and expression – London’s Queer Fashion Show is the place to be for the leading LGBTQI designers in the queer community. It’s a wonderfully inclusive day where everyone comes together to showcase identity and expression in all of its many forms.
The aim is to represent people of all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, abilities, sizes, pronouns and identities.
Forget about the constructs of women’s and men’s clothing – this is all about wearing the clothes that make you feel the boldest, most expressive and most seen in the community.
This year the show will feature 12 of London’s most talented and emerging LGBTQI+ designers and there are over 120 (completely gorgeous) models set to walk the queerest runway you could imagine. This is truly the stuff of DIVA dreams.
Models from the queer community including Tess Holliday, Rain Dove, Jamie Windust and Char Bailey will all be there this year and, as if that wasn’t enough, it’s going to be hosted by everyone’s favourite drag queen: Courtney Act.
There will also be performances throughout the night from voguers, dance troupes and artists as well as over 20 LGBTQI vendors providing you with all your queer clothing needs.
If you’re looking for a space where people of all identities feel safe, supported and seen make sure you head to the V&A Museum of Childhood on 20 September to catch the show.
Tickets are available here and, just a heads up, they’re selling fast! 🌈
