The sale will take place at 19-23 Kingsland Road, London E2 8AA, open from 10am-6pm during the three days.
Fashion stylist Katy England is best known for her extensive work for Alexander McQueen. Since the designer’s untimely death, England worked closely with Ricardo Tisci for many years, styling his shows, campaigns and editorials during his time at Givenchy. Previously fashion director of both Dazed & Confused and AnOther magazine, the stylist is one of the most innovative image-makers in the industry. She has styled campaigns for Jil Sander, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Giorgio Armani and worked with major photographers including Mert and Marcus, Alasdair McLellan , Inez and Vinoodh, Willy Vanderperre and Nick Knight .
Fellow stylist Alister Mackie shares his studio with former mentor and long-time collaborator England. The pair first met in the back of a trailer on location in the early 1990s, when Mackie was a model on a shoot that England was styling. Mackie co-founded Another Man in 2005 to meet the increasing interest in menswear at the time. Alongside his editorial work, Mackie became a consultant for brands early in his career, after assisting England on shows like Alexander McQueen’s “The Birds” in 1995. His longest-standing client is Marc Jacobs, but he also consults for Louis Vuitton and has previously worked with Lanvin, Dunhill, Missoni and Fendi, among others.
