The lifestyle hotel in Aldgate East, continues to host worth seeing creative exhibitions. Leman Locke is now introducing Michelle Beatty and her new photographic series A Freedom Movement 2019.
Michelle is an Australian born Londoner who has spent a creative lifetime moving seamlessly from the carnival of catwalks and high fashion showrooms, to the subtle backdrops of fine art photography - landscapes, architecture and foreign, far-off lands. For the first time, Michelle has created a body of work that straddles these two parallel career tracks, and the contrasting sides of herself.
Leman Locke is proud to present her newest photographic series, where three talented subjects with backgrounds in ballet, modelling and choreography are captured in the prime of their lives; embodying strength, wisdom, and feminine beauty. The subjects are offset by strong skies, powerful waves and brooding clouds. The photography exhibition runs across all 22 floors of the East London lifestyle hotel, open to the public from 10th May until 31st July.

A surrealist trapped in reality, a painter on a quest to find his inspiration, and an ever current
Following its first fashion film, “Anamnesis”, the men’s brand Dánte makes a comeback with
“Lobster”, a film praising introspection and the constant, very personal, search for one’s true self.
Inspiration is found in Salvador Dali, one of the most eccentric and controversial personalities of
contemporary art and surrealism.
After Nikos Psarras, the torch is passed to Stavros Svigkos, the talented actor who portrays a
contemporary version of Dali, trying to find his lobster, the inspiration he needs to express his very
own truth without limitations or restraints.
Inspirer of the idea and founder of the brand, Antonis Papastavrou, places the Spanish painter’s
moustache-symbol, which in itself was a statement against the stereotypes of the hyperrealists of
Dali’s time, in the skilled hands of Kontstantinos Dekoumés who magnificently brings to life the
artistic and personal impasse in which the artist found himself, as well as the symbolic association it
had with the inspiration for his famous painting, the lobster..

After the huge success of the London’s Design Museum exhibition "Azzedine Alaïa: The Couturier", a new announcement confirmed the good news.
The exhibition is travelling to Milan and it will be open on the 20th of September for four days only!
Showcasing his creations from the early 1980s and following his creative path right up until his final Paris Couture show in July 2017, the retrospective is curated by fashion historian Olivier Saillard, who, it’s safe to say, knows the ‘King of Cling’ and his work like the back of his hand.
Saillard was also behind Alaïa retrospective Je Suis Couturier, which took place in Paris earlier this year. The exhibition brought together looks including the iconic purple hooded gown worn by Grace Jones in 1985 Bond film A View to a Kill and a series of dresses worn by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Helena Christensen.
Taking place in the Italian city’s Palazzo Clerici throughout fashion week, the exhibition runs from September 20-25. Book your flights now, fashion fans.
