London Fashion Week may be over but we are continuing our downtheditch styler week, showcasing to you to hottest street style fashion in our beloved Shoreditch area. Next up we have Toni who is from Liverpool and was just down for the weekend visiting friends, the hat she wears was recent purchase to fight off the cold weather.
She describes her style as a mix donated gifts from friends with an eye for good style and a number vintage items which she has hunted down. The blue scarf pictured above is an example of a donated gift which she got from her mum.
Adding to the donated theme her bag is a gift from a her who visited Thailand and below you can see a close up of her skirt from Topshop. Toni does exceptionally well to make to blend the colours of gold, orange, purple and pink, she does it very well and makes it look very stylish.
Seeing as today is menswear day at London Fashion Week, it is only befitting that today’s downtheditch styler features a man of course! Today we have Mike originally from Liverpool but now living in Hackney who is a Graphic Designer for a music label in London. His style is a blend of Topman, high street and vintage clothing, you are a ‘top man’ Sir!
So last weekend we were out with our camera for the big Swagminati event at East Gallery on Brick Lane. It was a day full of independent, unique and undergrounds street wear fashion brands as well as good music, good food and good vibes. Under one roof we had some of the UK’s rising starts in terms of street wear fashion which included Dat Tag, Trikki Clothing, Fuudhoods, BSKA, Shining Heroes, Kay-em Tees, Sangster Jewellery and many many more hot brands. Take look at our video to find out what went down at the Lane, check out a great vocal and musical performance from singer and song writer Rufio Summers.
No one reps the UK trainer scene like Crepe City who have been running their sneaker festivals since 2008. Each event they continue to attract more and more trainer enthusiasts and exclusive collectors. The next event takes place right here in Shoreditch at Bar Music Hall on Sunday 4th March 2012.
There will literally be hundreds of trainers on sale at the event from some of the UK’s most renowned collectors and re-sellers. Also at the event will be some of the very best UK street wear Brands including doughnut loving ‘Pinsinspired’, big zipped ‘DatTag’ and uber trendy and cool ‘Trikki’ who have all been featured on this site at some point, so we are especially looking forward to the new ‘swag’ they are going to bring. In terms of the crepes (and we are not talking about crepes of the sweet flour variety) you will find rare vintage kicks from yesteryear from all your favourite brands including Nike, Adidas and Puma.
Tuneage on the day comes from Shoreditch club rippers 7oel from the Bang Bang, Chris P Cuts and many many more, so we look forwarding to kicking it with you there!

downtheditch styler episode 6 features Jude from Jude’s Junkyard which he opens every weekend on Redchurch Street in Shoreditch. He tells us he’s wearing a vintage Coyote fur coat, which throws up issues about recycling, animal rights and staying warm in winter, I will let you make up your own minds on that one.
