Contributor Random Bangle Comes to Vienna!
Hello from Fish and Chips HQ!!!
Last week saw the much anticipated arrival of Russell, one of our wonderful contributors who jetted into Vienna from London!
Random Bangle AKA Edinburgh born, Russell Barratt is an accessories and prop designer specialising in performance garments. His unique approach to textile creation and traditional crafts encapsulates a range of influences within his work including the 80’s era, Egypt, club culture, knotting and recycling. His work has included commissioned pieces for design collective, Maiden Britain, which was showcased at London Fashion Week as well as for Eska Mtungwazi as part of The Matthew Herbert Big Band. Aside from private commissions which have been featured in publications including; Notion, Random Magazine and Dazed Digital, his bold pieces are stocked at Soho boutique, Machine-A.
As well as being one of our showcasing contributors he has also been offering his talents to the Vienna based Fish and Chips team. During his time here he has been working in the quartier21 studios making both his special custom piece for the exhibition as well as getting crafty with lots of exciting bits and pieces for the gallery!
It's fun times-o-clock having Russell in town and awesome to have his support!
