My São Paulo!

Posted by on Oct 28, 2015 in Calendar, Event | Comments Off on My São Paulo!

We are excited to announce that the first international pilot of Cafe Art's photography contest and calendar is happening in São Paulo next week, to be called Minha São Paulo. Following the success of a visit by a delegation to London in April this year, Cafe Art was invited to join a UK delegation with the organisation With One Voice in November, and the contest was added later. The São Paulo city council (the prefeitura) asked if Cafe Art could do a pilot photography contest like the My London project and Paul Ryan will fly to São Paulo on Sunday 1 November a week before the rest of the UK delegation. We are very excited to not only be included...

Heartfelt congratulations to David Tovey (artist & photographer) for pulling off his first one-man 'autumn collection' fashion show with a difference over the weekend. And what a difference it was. Picture the scene at Southbank, London: sunny clear skies, large crowds of happy and cheerful people around, music in the air, the beautiful River Thames on one side and not a care in the world! In the distance, the sound of a beating drum. Out comes a procession of beautiful models wearing bold, colourful & stunning couture outfits (made from recycled materials!) which many Fashion Houses would be proud of. Everyone from the models, make-up artists, hair...
