Hey What’s wrong with you?

Most of you will have fond memories of this late 90’s house classic from Phats and Small……

‘Turn Around’ was the soundtrack to Brighton in the summer of 1999 and the video a true classic, with that gold jacket, Brighton’s seafront and local landmarks engrained in everyones mind.

Fast forward 17 years later……..Turn Around has been re-released and the video re-made, paying homage to the original.

We were really privileged to be involved in the remake of this and jumped at the chance to put a Gresham Blake twist on that gold jacket for Ben Ofoedu.

Ben and Jason came into store for a series of fittings with Gresham and Fal to make sure we got it just right.

The finished article was a made to measure piece which fitted perfectly, allowing Ben to throw a few shapes comfortably. The jacket itself is adorned in gold sequins with a contrast satin lapel, lined in printed gold number from Twisted Linings.

On top of making the jacket, Gresham also got to be in the music video (one more thing off his bucket list).

Jason smoothly rides along on his bike, ragging it to that record store, nearly knocking a pedestrian (expertly portrayed Creative Legal Mastermind Dean Marsh) over, queue Gresham, looking aghast whilst measuring local trombonist Ashley Slater (known for his work with Norman Cook AKA Fatboy Slim) in our Brighton store window.

If the excitement of a single launch wasn’t enough, Gresham Blake also premiered their latest capsule collection, ‘The collette suit’, which Collette wears in the Perfect Girl video.

For an event which signified exciting new styles and brilliant jazz music, we had to pull out all the stops to ensure the launch party was one to remember!

The important job of music for the night fell to none-other than BBC Radio ones Nick Grimshaw, and TV Presenter/ Groucho club DJ Harriet Rose. They kept everyone entertained throughout the night and a special thanks must go to them.

Guests for the affair included designers Jemima French and Sadie frost (who are well- known for their ‘Frost French’ lingerie company), and Actresses Daisy Lewis and Kathryn Drysdale.

The night could not have been possible if it wasn’t for the hard work and generosity of Helen from Brighton Gin, and Tom from Ridgeview Winery, who kept all our visitors hydrated for the evening. The styling for the event was equally exceptional – from trumpets with flowers exploding out of them, to hand drawn artwork draping the walls, art director Charlie Herman really pulled out all the stops!
