|girl I saw on Church St. - 15/1/11|
|Balenciaga A/W 2011|
You would have to be a little slow on the style front to not know that the East end has always housed London' more edgy creative scene due to cheaper rents, studio spaces and the on going art and music scene but it is fairly new to see an old Haute Couture fashion house sitting up and taking such acute notice. In fact it looks like they have been shopping here recently. Geek chic works well in Hackney but I'm rather chuckling at the thought of the Vogue woman walking around in a complete 'Look', at the cost of around £2000, when she would do just as well to visit Dirty Blonde on Church Street like 'Mary' in the illustration above and come away with about £1940 in change. It is nice to know that sometimes, in fashion, it pays to be poor!
