British born multimedia artist Alexander James and British Fashion Council (BFC) celebrated the opening of One More Slope, a group show curated by Alexander James in collaboration with BFC New Wave: Creatives, a list of the most innovative young creative talent across multiple disciplines, as nominated by The Fashion Awards 2019 international voting panel.

The opening event, which took place at The Painting Rooms in Soho, London, featured a mix of exhibited works, installations and live performances by James and New Wave: Creatives talent including Aidan Zamiri (video director), Helene Selam Kleih (writer/activist) and Pierre-Alexandre Fillaire (performance artist). Contributing artists participating in the event were Jack Laver (artist) and Sonny Hall (poet).

The exhibition, which is open for private appointments from today onwards, is part of the British Fashion Council’s larger initiative to highlight the relationship between the creative industries by celebrating not only fashion designers, but also the broader creative community who all play a vital role in our industry’s culture and reputation.

James’s practice spans diverse media, including painting, sculpture, video and installation. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Camberwell College of Arts in London where he studied illustration from 2012 to 2015. He has exhibited his works in London, Berlin, Paris and New York.

The British Fashion Council’s New Wave: Creatives is a list of 100 of the most innovative and inspiring young creative talents from around the world, nominated by The Fashion Awards international voting panel. The dynamic list includes trailblazers from across multiple disciplines from artists, activists, casting agents, commentators, florists, hair and makeup artists, image makers, nail artists, set designers, stylists and writers.

The British Fashion Council (BFC) was set up in 1983 to promote British fashion internationally and co-ordinate this promotion through fashion weeks, exhibitions and showcasing events. The BFC now supports designers beginning at college level and extending to talent identification, business support and showcasing schemes. The BFC promotes British fashion and its influential role at home and abroad, helping British designer businesses develop their profiles and business globally.
