Last October, we joined forces once again with our creative partners Slaves of the Extraordinary, for our second creatively explosive charity event, Spark, which we held at Corbet Place off Brick Lane.
With their help, we put together a creatively charged night showcasing the work of ethical designers, musicians, performers and Hoxton FM, all of whom come together to raise money and promote the works of Mayamiko Trust, as well as showcase their amazing artistic talents.
The fashion showcase included displays from Mayamiko Designed, African Fashion Week rising star MIA by Mia Nisbet, Fair & True, Here Today Here Tomorrow styled by Bunmi and AFOL Milan Fashion School with shoes by Beyond Skin.
Musicians included State of Bengal, Bam Bam Drum Band, Randolph Matthews and Michelle Cade, with performances from Slum Civilians with music by Stephen Thomas Clarke and illustrations by Lisa Hawthorne.
The event was broadcast live from Corbet Place by our media partners Hoxton FM, with listeners from all around London tuning in. As our second annual Mayamiko Trust event, Spark proved a fantastic for us to promote the work of ethical and creative designers, including our own wonderful trainees at The Fashion Lab!
