The Marr Factory Presents: Kate Sylvester

article thumbnail

Some had been surprised at the first Marr Factory show when ShowRoom 22’s Murray Bevan moved them aside to form a makeshift runway.

Former Nylon fashion editor Aya T Kanai once declared, “If I could be any girl, I would be a Karen Walker girl”. Judging by the crowd at tonight’s show, she wouldn’t be the only one. Of the five Marr Factory shows being held at Golden Dawn this week, Walker’s was the first to sell out, and her signature styling was evident off the runway as much as on. This...
