‘LES GENS’, a clothing brand from Nottingham hosted its 1-year anniversary pop up event to celebrate creativity amongst Nottinghamshire in Hockley on Sunday 20th October.

Life News

“We as a brand try and represent the uncertainty and confusion many young people face in todays society and try and promote that you should embrace what makes you happy and find your own individuality, the event on the 20th hopefully showed people that there are many ways to express that, if that would be through art, music or creating clothes. Nottingham has so many talented people from musicians, photographers, artists, DJs and loads more. A lot of the time its not really something shouted about, this is something we should really celebrate as much as possible. We felt it was only right to try and invite some of our favourite creatives to join us and have an event to help shout about this. Helping to put on a day filled with art, music and fashion.”

Rhys Loydall, Owner of LES GENS
