A fashion show crafted from rubbish thrown away on London’s streets

Artist and fashion designer David Tovey shares his Man on Bench couture.

Part performance art, part storytelling, part fashion design, this catwalk show is created with materials and items of old clothing that have been thrown away on London’s streets.

Drop in to see the beauty in rubbish and if you believe in second chances. 

This event is programmed by the Museum of Homelessness, a Tate Exchange Associate.
