The Art Gallery of York University recently published a large, beautiful book called “Will Munro: History, Glamour, Magic”. Will was incredibly prolific, and the AGYU has done a stunning job of documenting Will’s art.
Close to the back there’s a portion that compiles the silk screened posters Will produced for his events and collaborative events, including the ones we did for 7th Heaven. 
The book can be purchased online through the York Bookstore, at Art Metropole, Paul Petro, and at some point Magic Pony and Type will also be carrying it. 
I recently lost my entire website so in an effort to preserve a little history, I’m going to re-post all of the info for the events we produced here:
"Several years ago, Jaime was djing at the Glass Candy/ Chromatics/ Crystal Castles show at the Boat in Toronto. The playlist was a cross of disco/ italo/ house/ weird new wave/ pop’s odder moments/ psyche … you get the gist. A heady and dark mixture. Will came up to Jaime and said “Hey we should play disco together!”. Jaime was happy to oblige (because she loves Will and thinks he has thrown some of the best parties she’s been to in the past 7 years), and together they created the Seventh Heaven Dream Disco in August of 2006.We like the sensual, the luxurious, the idiosyncratic, the mysterious, the raw … music that will take you from the dazzling neon disco lights and send you across the galaxy, set you down under the stars on some faraway beach dancing and drinking by the fire, guide you under the streetlights of a foreign city late at night, and eventually tuck you in around twilight, where it will stay with you in that half dream state, somewhere between conscious and unconscious …”From 2006 - 2009, our guest dj’s included:PILOOSKI (DIRTY, Paris)KIM ANN FOXMAN (of Hercules & Love Affair, NYC)JD TWITCH (Optimo, Glasgow)SEVERINO (Horse Meat Disco, London UK)JAMES MURPHY (LCD Soundsystem/ DFA Records, NYC)TIM SWEENEY (Beats in Space/ DFA, NYC)ERIC DUNCAN (Rub n Tug/ Still Going, NYC)MAURICE FULTON (Bubbletease, UK)MORGAN GEIST (Environ, NYC)JEREMY GREENSPAN (Junior Boys, CANADA)ANDY BUTLER (Hercules & Love Affair, NYC)DANIEL WANG (Balihu, Berlin)MIKE SIMONETTI (Italians Do It Better, NJ)LOUD E (CBS, Rotterdam)TAKO (CBS, Rotterdam)LOVEFINGERS (Black Disco, LA)RELAXER (SoftCurls, Detroit)GARY ABUGAN (LunaPark, Toronto)AL P’EASY LOVER (Toronto)ANDYCAPP & ROD SKIMMINS (Bang The Party, Toronto)NACHO LOVERS (Fool’s Gold, Toronto)NAV (Wrongbar, Toronto)ANDREW ALLSGOOD (Fascination, Toronto)COLIN BERGH (More Proof, Toronto)DAVE LA MERDE (Shit La Merde, Toronto)with your hosts (and sometimes resident djs):WILL MUNRO & JAIME SIN

CLUB TO CATWALK TO SS14
Top image: McQueen SS14 in the foreground, 80s Body Map and Leigh Bowery in the background.
Bottom image: Celine SS14 in the foreground, Vivienne Westwood 80s Pirates and Witches collections in the background.
Loved seeing the early 80s/ Blitz Kid influence on this season’s runways. A Bowery styled look can be expected at McQueen, but the surprise of seeing it at Celine (down to the Trojan “Picasso Face”-esque brows) was quite nice.

feeling kinda fashion nostalgic and looking thru old collections. these pics are from the fall winter 2000 callaghan show, which nicholas ghesquiere was designing at the same time as balenciaga for a bit. shows early riffs on the east west musical instruments jacket and moto jacket he would popularize several years on.
