All Walks Beyond The Catwalk – formed by fashion commentator and former BBC Clothes Show presenter Caryn Franklin, fashion consultant Debra Bourne and model Erin O’Connor – launched a body diversity initiative with an evening of special events at The National Portrait Gallery.
A showcase of nine portraits by Rankin featuring models ranging in age, size and ethnicity with collaborations by top designers including Vivienne Westwood, Giles Deacon, Stella McCartney and many more.
We co-produced the event which saw 4000 visitors. Including a pop-up photo studio with photographer Alistair Guy taking ‘straight-ups’ (in association with i-D magazine), a fashion illustration masterclass with David Downton and models for a room of artists displaying their work live, an all-female DJ line up with Loren Platt (WORK IT) and a soundscape exploring themes of beauty, identity and celebrity.
Inclusive of pre-production, site management, VIP relations, influencer collaborations, coordination of illustration masterclasses with David Downton and photo studio management for Alistair Guy.
