“EEF”, takes you on a journey of self-discovery. The portraits of those who inhabit East London exude each individuals’ TRUTH, who they are and what they represent.
Which takes you to a quote in the book by the Great, Alexander McQueen, “It’s a new era in fashion. There are no rules. It’s about the INDIVIDUAL and PERSONAL style, wearing high-end , low-end classic labels and up-and-coming designers all together.”

The East End brings together a diversity of cultures and a unique sense of individuality, which seek not to conform but to enhance self-love and what better way than to use fashion as the medium. Malcolm McLaren so beautifully says, “Fashion is never wrong.”

He is right, this is what fashion should ultimately be about. The East Inhabitants so bravely walk their streets, heads held high, embracing that which allows them to be, to live, to breathe, to talk, to see. To them as shown in their portraits by Webb, “Fashion, should be seen as a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.”

Their faces tell a story, their looks take you on a journey. They are the “free-thinkers”. They are the creatives who look back at them; the slaves, society and say, “Thank you stranger for your patronizing smile.”

Editors Note:
———————————————————————–
“What an amazing piece of artistry, Anthony has captured so much more than what fashion is perceived as today. There is more to the industry than the superficial, that which we are mass fed on a daily basis. As Vivienne Westwood would say , “You’ve got to invest in the world, you’ve got to read, you’ve got to go to galleries. You’ve got to start to love the world and know about the whole genius of the human race. We’re AMAZING people.”
