A winter warmer and fair on World AIDS Day presented by the DALSTON MASSIVE, a carefully curated group of Dalston-based businesses and individuals composed of designers, artists, musicians and the uncategorisable. We have pooled our efforts, time, resources and powers of persuasion into this one-off event from which all profits will be going to AVERT, a UK based charity focusing on regional and global responses to HIV/AIDS. And we’d love you to come along. All you have to do is pay £2 on the door. After that it’s up to you where your money goes and we promise a world of choice, such as:

A FASHION SHOW hosted by local trans - supermodels Jonny Woo and James Jeanette and the cream of the East End’s fashion designers. This will be followed by an Auction hosted by Jonny Woo where you get to bid for the clothing fresh off the catwalk. We are lucky to have the talents of mz Chloe Kerman of Garage magazine styling and co-ordinating the show. Local designers giving to the event include James Long, Louise Gray, Marios Schwab, Noel Stewart, Piers Atkinson and a stellar line up of other Dalston based designers. Watch the list grow.

SILENT AUCTIONS will be taking place during the event of some incredible lots, such as art tees and prizes donated by local businesses.

• ART TEES: The Dalston Massive with the help of the fabulous Adam Waymouth have been banging on the studio doors of Hackney’s greatest artists asking them to hand-paint/print/perform on a plain white T-shirt based on the sentence ‘My friend went to Dalston and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt’. So far we have asked Grayson Perry, Jake and Dino Chapman, Sarah Lucas, Wolfgang Tilmans, Conrad Shawcross, Idris Khan, Annie Morris, Raqib Shaw, Philippa Horan, Rebecca Warren, Nathaniel Mellors, Angela Federico, Victoria Sin and many more.

• Other auction lots include prizes generously donated by LOCAL BUSINESSES, with meals and drinks and art and services to be won. From a long weekend on an Italian vineyard to a meal for 2, to the perfect Christmas present for your Aunties, we’re expecting donations from: Vogue Fabrics, Dalston Superstore, A little of What you Fancy, Unpackaged, Sweet Thursday, The Scolt Head, Mangal2, Sfuso Wine, Dukes Brew and Que, Pelicans & Parrots, HUH, Ruby’s , The Print Club, Gujarati Rasoi, Say Cheese.

Music and performances throughout the day from local DJs, musicians and performers including Dan Beaumont and Bright Light Bright Light.

The FAIR will consist of stalls of all sorts of shapes, sizes, colours and smells, with all the proceeds going to the charity. We will also be running a non profit bar and food stalls under the guidance of Marina from Sfuso Wine making sure the booze never runs out.

A special thanks to MC MOTORS who have given us their fantastic space for free.

Love to all from VOGUE FABRICS and the DALSTON MASSIVE
