Hoxton Square is in the heart of Shoreditch, the most exciting place in today’s London. Location for the most fashionable clubs, restaurants and galleries. The place where fashion is happening, home base for most of the british fashion designers, including Giles Deacon, Gareth Pugh, Christopher Kane, Marios Schwab, Richard Nicoll and others…well the list is really endless… Although Chris&Tibor studio is in Dalston now, but we have started from Hoxton Square. We used to work in the 11 Hoxton Square, just above Zigfrid club.
So you will understand how excited we are, when our favorite london based architect Zaha Hadid has finally received a planning permission for a Hoxton Sq building, despite the opposition and a long 4 years dispute with the English Heritage. The gallery and apartment block is for the US art dealer Kenny Schachter. This project will be Hadid’s first permanent building in England, and is aiming to be completed before Hadid’s Aquatic Centre for the 2012 London Olympic Games. We really cannot wait for the building to be finished, we might move our studio back to Hoxton Square, but this time to Hadid’s building.
Fashion History! Did you know?: In 2007, Karl Lagerfeld personally commissioned Hadid to design a mobile, collapsible exhibition pod for Chanel. Chanel Mobile Art is a travelling building and exhibition where different artists has created works based around Chanel’s back catalogue of iconic leather handbags. Hadid also designed limited collections for Vivienne Westwood and Melissa shoes.
