Test Presents…showed ‘Legacy in the Dust: The Four Aces Story’ in their ongoing series of monthly fashion film screenings and talks. Designer Martine Rose had chosen Legacy in the Dust (a documentation of the rise and untimely demise of the east London club that played host to everyone from Bob Marley to the Sex Pistols) as a representation of her combined love of fashion and music. Rose, who recently worked with Test to produce her first ever fashion film which wasl shown prior to the feature film screening, said “I grew up in a family where music was very important. My early influences into fashion were very much wrapped up in music” .
The film was screened on Thursday 21st June at 7.30pm at the Council Chamber Screening Room, Town Hall Hotel, Bethnal Green. Rose introduced and discussed both her own Test fashion film and Legacy in the Dust which was followed by a post-screening audience Q & A. All attendees received complimentary drinks courtesy of Peroni beer.
