First she created WAH magazine in 2005, then came WAH Nails last summer and now Sharmadean Reid, publisher/stylist/consultant/blogger, brings us Riot Rude the WAH Nails party.
WAH Nails originally began providing the most outrageously decorated nails in Dalston and has gone on to become a cult trend across the whole of London, even earning Sharmadean a feature in Vogue’s January 2010 ‘Bright Stars’ article. After creating such a buzz amongst the hippest girls in the city the salon was given its own space in Topshop’s Oxford Street flagship. Love, love, love!
From nails to nightclubs the event held at The Alibi in East London tomorrow night, Thursday 27th may 2010, is set to be a live mash up of hip hop, dancehall and disco. Judging by the eclectic inspirations of Sharmadean and the WAH girls, ‘hip hop, getting our nails done, comics, coloured gemstones, grimey clubs, Ralph Lauren, gold, LA, high high heels, riot grrls, 1993/1983/1953, whining and grinding, vintage American sportswear, Versace, punk, sneakers, pink and yellow, Moschino, Jeff Koons, London, bodycon, shiny stuff, girl power, and staying true’ the fashion on display should be even more entertaining than the music. Expect freebies, fanzines and tons of rude girl attitude. Go get your whine on grrls!
Riot/Rude at The Alibi, 8pm- 3am, 91 Kingsland High Rd, London, E8 2PB.
