FYI Quick-Flash: 2010 Review

Leave a comment

The new year approaches fast, but before it arrives its only right that we recap our self’s with the events of 2010. The fashion and music game sure has taken a huge turn with the UK rising up to be finally recognised for the talent it holds and we have seen the rise of artists the likes of Tinchy Stryder, N Dubz, Tinie Tempah, Labrinth, Giggs and many more.

In particular I was most impressed by the UK fashion scene, a lot of labels have come a long way and have made big movement. Labels such as VAG and Benjart really made an impact in 2010 and we witnessed Trapstar take on the corporate world and have opened their 1st store.

With 2011 fast approaching its nearly time to embrace the what may be the most difficult year yet, with all the changes that the government are making but I’m sure in spite of this new talent will emerge from the UK to take on the music and fashion scene and we shall see bigger and better things from those who are already on the scene.

From everyone here at FYI have a happy new year and drink responsibly.

The new collection designed by ‘Amy Winehouse’ allows us to see the sophisticated, fashionable side of her  rather than the booze hound, drug addict she is normally conveyed as.

Crepe City 3

Leave a comment

Today saw the return of ‘Crepe City – the london sneaker festival’, celebrating the UK’s underground music and fashion culture. The event was held at the Bar Music Hall in Shoreditch , the event was a place where eager fashion enthusiasts could go and embrace the urban fashion culture. On display was some of the rarest and exclusive sneakers from Jordans to Airmax’s. The movement originally started when 3 guys who all shared the passion for sneakers (trainers) and had an idea that there should be an environment where other enthusiasts can come sell, buy, talk and generally share their passion for the ever so comfortable and popular footwear. Today would have been the 3rd instalment of this unique event with so much more to come in the future. The creators of Crepe City also integrated the ingenious idea of being hosts for some of london’s most successful underground fashion labels, the idea was for these labels to come down and showcase and sell their stuff to an audience who love and support the UK underground scene. Today saw the attendance of labels such as Benjart, Trapstar, VAG, PINS, 360 (pictured below) and many more.
