55DSL would like to invite DenimBlog readers to Studio55’s latest opening, “The Learning” with works by Andrew Clark.
Studio 55 is a working creative space in the heart of London’s media hub, Soho. After working with, collaborating and supporting artists and musicians for the past 15 years and gaining much respect within the media world, Italian streetwear brand 55DSL wanted to create a space that complimented the store and that could be used by creative types looking for somewhere to either work, play or exhibit.
Already with two very successful shows under its belt, with renowned artists Mitchy Bwoy and Rabodiga and also up and coming musician Erik Hassle’s debut single launch, Studio55 is now gathering up momentum for the next show, this time with emerging illustrator Andrew Clark.
Inspired by the nostalgia of 55DSL’s fifteenth birthday, ‘The Learning’ gives a nod to the past in its resurrecting of the old. The work is new, but the delivery is traditional. Over-head projectors, slides and frames give the viewer a chance to interact and be educated in Andrew’s first solo exhibition that won him so many admirers in 2009, with this latest showcase of work.
‘The Learning’ Opening is on October 1st from 6pm – 00pm.
Sophie Reade attended the photocall for the ‘Protect Against Size Discrimination‘ campaign at London Fashion Week at Somerset house. So many of the beautiful ladies in the photo have denim on. I thought this would make a good blog post since size discrimination is not something to be overlooked, especially in the fashion industry. What is your opinion?

This is exciting. Levi’s has been involved with the stage version of Green Day’s “American Idiot” – a riotous live production of Green Day’s hit songs at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in Berkeley, CA. The show’s opening night was September 16, 2009.
This groundbreaking production featured a wide selection of Levi’s® pieces, as Costume Designer Andrea Lauer took Levi’s® 514® Slim Straight Jean, Levi’s® 510® Skinny Jean and the original jean, Levi’s® 501®, and slashed and tore the jeans and had them bleached, painted, or otherwise individualized to create an authentic look and feel for the show.
The Levi’s® brand’s passion for this project is deeply rooted in their history of supporting the rock and roll culture and ambitious musical endeavors, as well as the fact that Levi’s® jeans have long been the denim brand that rockers, and music enthusiasts alike, choose to live in.
The opening night after party was held in the courtyard of the Berkeley Rep, where trees were adorned with hanging shredded Levi’s® jeans and glittering combat boots, to enjoy vodka spiked snow cones and a Levi’s® barber shop. Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong got in on the action and playfully shaved a mohawk for a guest.
