9January is the 150th
anniversary of the world's first underground urban railway, which officially
opened in the British capital between Paddington and Farringdon on 9 January
1863. The former Metropolitan Railway carried its first passengers the
following day in steam-hauled trains and the line, now electrified still
carries London commuters today.
Finding a good
party is difficult but London makes it this little bit easier. When we got
inspired to do our Halloween outfits we got carried away in researching Andy
Warhol and Edie Sedwick. So, one might think, our latest find understandably is
Die Freche Muse’s ‘Warhol Factory Party’. A night themed on Warhol’s famous
Factory, for those who don not know what it is please! google it quickly. We will
follow up with a post from the party as this one is published just before we go…
This year Halloween comes on a Wednesday but the weekend preceding this goolish night was a perfect excuse for us to 'practice' for the big day.
We had a pumpkin, which is a necessity, and all the beauty equipment we needed to make ourselves the scariest of creatures. But we thought we must leave this fun for Wednesday. So! The decision was made and influenced by the 60s music in the background, we became Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick.
Here we present the outcome of the night. Photographs are an interpretation 'my own version' of famous pair's photos with few of our own ideas thrown in.
