London Queer Fashion Show Interview: Laura Kanaplue (Girl in a Bowtie)

London Queer Fashion Show Interview: Laura Kanaplue (Girl in a Bowtie)

The first show its kind, London welcomes The London Queer Fashion Show September 20th, 2017.

My dear friend, Laura Kanaplue (Girl in a Bowtie), was willing to "sit down" with me and tell me all about this very exciting event.

What can you tell us about the event? 

The London Queer Fashion Show is launching in London and causing a stir amongst the fashion set.  A catwalk and emporium showcasing London’s most diverse and electric new fashion talent,  the event is asking some challenging questions about how the fashion industry has come to treat gender and the LGBTQ+ community.

Whose idea was it to put on a queer fashion show in London?

Clothes have no gender. Come as you are. 

Robyn Exton and Vivienne Errington-Barnes [Founders of Her app] have been talking about putting on a Queer Fashion Show in London for about a year. They reached out to me about 3 and a half months ago. We have all pulled it together in a short amount of time. It has been so rewarding helping to bring a Queer Fashion Show to London, my new home.

What is the goal of having a fashion show like this in London?

This is a chance to express and exhibit clothing for the people that believe in unique identity over gender stereotypes. No more Men’s Department, Women’s Department,  Men’s Fashion Week and Women’s Fashion Week. Just pure expression of identity from the most exciting LGBTQ+  designers, or designers creating clothing outside of the gender binary.


Is there a particular message this event should be sending?

Clothes have no gender. Come as you are.

What should people expect to see at the show? 

Models and influencers from Rain Dove the infamous gender-fluid model to transgender activist Sam Moir Smith [Nike campaigner, LDN Fashion Week model] will both be walking in the show. Before and after the catwalk, guests can enjoy The Emporium, a series of interactive stands to experience and experiment with different looks,  from hairstyling to dress tutorials to makeup demos.


Have any notable names popped up on the guest list?

Well, we are so lucky to have Rain come and walk the show. Sam Moir Smith is becoming a big name in the underground London fashion scene! He was featured on the Basement Approved. His journey has been beautiful to watch. London's top drag queens will be attending as well! Who doesn't love a good drag ball?

What are you most looking forward to regarding the show?

This has been a dream come true. I cannot wait to see it all come to life. I also cannot wait to see how the guests react. It'll be such a pleasure to see people's faces light up and enjoy themselves in a safe and creative space!

How did you get involved with the show?

Since moving to London I've had a rough go at finding a job that seems fit. Luckily right after a temporary gig that wasn't really up my alley Viv and Robyn contacted me about the show. It was fate!

Will we be seeing you on the runway as well?

Oh if only! I will be running around like Margaret Cho in that one Sex and the City episode where Carrie walks the runway at fashion week. Give me my headset. Or maybe just Emily Blunt in Devil Wears Prada. I don't even know what I'm wearing yet!

What do you (personally) hope will happen as a result of this event?

I know that the London Queer Fashion Show will continue on bigger and badder every year! 

 

In the meantime, get your tickets for the show and/or after party, stalk their Instagram, and check out their website to learn more!
