DESIGN OVERTIME FESTIVAL - TONIGHT!

Hey, let your hair down and relax: Design Overtime is in international festival mood. London, Vienna, Dessau, Paris, LA, Milan, Tokyo – everyone is talking DESIGN OVERTIME. See Design Cities and see the world. It will be a festive combination of bunting and banter. Join the 'This Happened' discussion to hear stories behind interaction and multi-media design, review your favourite new product for the Design Overtime rag, or take part in the interactive fashion extravaganza, 'The Forgotten Peacock'.

Design MuseumIt’s also a last chance to see Industrial Facility and Tim Walker exhibitions, and a first chance to see the work of this year's Designers in Residence and hear them talk about their work.

The Forgotten Peacock is an interactive performance installation, enabling ordinary men to try on extravagantly designed suits, to become fashion icons for the night. For one night at the Design Museum be inspired and be provoked by an installation involving extravagant men’s suits, video projection, choreography and original sound. The Forgotten Peacock is a multimedia fashion extravaganza created by designer Takis with sound by Olivier Award winner Gareth Fry. Nine unique extravagant men’s suits, each in three different sizes, will be available for men to try on and parade through the galleries of the museum. Visitors will be given the opportunity to try on the luxurious suits, playing with their image to become twenty-first century ‘peacocks’. The installation is a cultural experiment, inviting the general public to explore a new form of personal expression and challenging social taboos and cultural preconceptions of contemporary masculinity. Whether you are dressing up or looking on, this will be a flamboyant spectacle with one fitting backdrop of the Tim Walker Pictures exhibition.

The Festival is at the Design Museum, Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD on Friday 19th September from 6-10pm.
