  • Noir! Go Reborn

Go Reborn! are a collaborative outfit of makers, shakers and innovators intent on having not just a good time but also making good art. This August sees the launch of their magazine and the arrival of another club night with a twist: a collaborative party with Noir! featuring a variety of Scotland’s finest artwork, fashion and music. This is Noir’s seventh night and looks set to be as sinful as the number, with an indulgent evening of frock-offs and dance-offs, musical mayhem and theatrical glamour.

When two established creative heads like Reborn! and Noir! combine you know that you are in for a treat. Double the exclamation marks and double the fun: expect live music, installations and a host of high fashion and high jinx, as they push boundaries and buttons that blend and challenge the realms of creativity and club night while having a perversely outrageous time in the process.

The event will feature a host of designers and artists, including recent ECA graduates Alex Gibbs, Callum Monteith and Mathew Swan, who show talent by the bucket, paintings and illustrations bursting with of quintessential quirks and oddities reined in by precision and careful brushwork. On the fashion side, pieces will come from Jane Davidson and include designers such as Missoni, Halston Heritage and Herve Leger. Surreal headpieces will come courtesy of Edinburgh-based designer Evelyn Morrison.

Taking place on 26 August, it is set to be one of the best closing parties of the festival so put your best fashion foot forward and come along. Go watch, go wild, Go Reborn! [Mhairi Graham]
