British Guide to Showing OffIf you haven’t heard of the ‘The Alternative Miss World Show’ you are in for a rollickingly fabulous treat. Legendary artist Andrew Logan started this spectacularly outrageous costume pageant 4o years ago and it has gone on to celebrate creativity, flamboyance and outsiders in all shapes and forms. David Hockney judged the first one, David Bowie couldn’t get into the second and Derek Jarman won the third, over the years it has attracted the likes of Zandra Rhodes, Mary Quant, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Grayson Perry, Brain Eno, Madonna, Divine and John Waters and now you can see it in all it’s anarchic glory in new film’ The British Guide to Showing Off’ released Friday 11 November. The outfits from the after party of last Sunday’s premiere (below) should give you a taster of the madness to come. The ICA is screening the film on the opening night featuring a Q&A with Andrew Logan and director Jes Benstock. We’re sure Andrew would appreciate any dressing up.
