The Catwalk In Your Living Room

Up-and-coming footwear designer Dionne Gooding knows shoes-and she sure knows how to throw a party.
"Like most women, I love shoes," Gooding says. "But I always found it hard to get exactly what I wanted." Though she owns over a hundred pairs, most of them are of her own design, or old favourites that have been recycled, refurbished and reborn through Gooding's innovative creative process. Not only does she sell her own sparkling, sexy-yet-comfortable line of pumps, high heels and courts at and in London and Kent boutiques; she also transforms old shoes into brand-new ones by adding elements like studs, flowers, feathers and Swarovski crystals-creating affordable, exquisite custom shoes to suit the
dream vision of each individual client.

Now, Gooding takes her fun on the road. She's created a whole new
phenomenon: the Shoe Party.
Who doesn't love shopping for shoes with her girlfriends?
Gooding's Shoe Parties come right to her clients' homes, gardens and offices. Women of all ages love to gather for Gooding's laughter-filled, creatively inspired shindigs, where she helps guests
dream, choose and design just the shoes they've always been looking for.

Hostesses (who get a half-price pair of shoes and ten percent off all
party sales) gather ten or more friends together to meet the
fun-loving designer and check out her funky, elegant designs. Wine is poured, snacks enjoyed, competitive shoe-trivia games played,
cool shoe prizes won-and each guest seizes her chance to strut her
stuff on a mini-catwalk in Dionne Gooding shoes. Shoe Party girls
can bring along old shoes to transform, with the inspired help of
Gooding and her trimmings, fabrics and style folders. And they can snap up her exclusive, limited-edition designs at great prices. At the end of the night, each guest leaves with both her shoes and her social life reinvigorated.

Gooding also sources fabric to custom-match shoes with favorite outfits, specializing in shoes for brides and bridesmaids in both African and traditional weddings. But no one's dream shoe is out of the realm of possibility for this dynamic twenty-five year-old designer.

"I got tired of seeing boring shoes in High Street stores and unique, luxurious shoes in designer stores that I couldn't afford," Gooding says. "So I decided to do my own amazing shoes at High Street prices."Your street, that is".

Dionne Gooding's creations are featured at Paraphernalia and NX
Boutique in South London, The Mixx in Kent, and online at

The Music World Comes Together to Fight Cancer

Exhibition Runs: 19th November to 30th November 2009

Unique cancer charity the No Surrender Charitable Trust has teamed up with Proud Camden to launch a special interactive exhibition, The Art of Music ‘09.
Showcasing original, one-off canvases created by leading musicians and bands exclusively for No Surrender; The Art of Music ’09 will present the only opportunity to view the works, which are to be auctioned in order to raise funds to support the charity’s vital efforts.
Featuring contributions from Maximo Park, Friendly Fires, Placebo, Maccabees, LadyHawke, White Lies and charity Trustee KT Tunstall amongst many more, this exhibition represents a coming together of the music world in the fight against cancer. Further adding to the exhibited work, videos of the canvasses being created will be projected on a gallery wall giving audiences the chance to experience the process from start to finish.

Paul Smith of Maximo Park says “We'll always try and support the charity in whatever way possible. It was fun to get involved with the exhibition and flex our artistic muscles. I'm not sure how many people will want to bid for my particular efforts, but I live in hope! There's no doubt it's a great cause.”
Not satisfied with merely featuring some of music’s leading lights, No Surrender has extended an open invitation to a whole hoard of bands and musicians. The exhibition will open with one wall of blank canvases alongside those already completed. Day by day a fresh canvas will be filled, accompanied by a live video stream at of the artwork being created, giving fans and visitors the chance to interact with their favourite band.

The V&A Ceramics Galleries

The art of making ceramics or pottery has been a skill that seems to have held its own for several centuries now and it does not show any sign of regressing. Most ceramics such as tiles, pots and statues are produced with clay or other raw materials and this process has changed very little over the years, making it one of the oldest art forms.

In 2010, the ceramic review and Craft Potters Association, which aims to encourage fine works in studio ceramics, to promote their value in society and to foster the interest of the public in ceramic art will host a major International showcase for ceramics which will coincide with the Victoria and Albert museum’s huge ceramic exhibition. These two events promise to put the UK at the forefront of the world’s ceramic market and promises to excite and educate audiences all over.

The Victoria and Albert museum, which is in the process of a positive and drastic refurbishment programme over the next few years (including a new wing and improving their massive renaissance collection), have decided to exhibit their impressive ceramics collection in their new ceramics galleries which is set to rival others in the world. The V&A promise to showcase over 3000 objects with highlights including the Ming Chinese dynasty porcelain, Meissen figures, Dutch delftware, ceramics by Clarice Cliff and tableware by Wedgewood.

The first phase of their four year refurbishment project is complete and with the second phase set to be achieved in the summer of 2010, it looks like the V&A will once again establish themselves as one of the nation’s finest art institutions.
