Discounted Designs

LFW is over for another six months, but from today the London Fashion Weekend takes over the BFC showspace at Somerset House. Current and past seasons’ collections, samples and one-off designs will be on sale with up to a 70% discount, from designers such as Current Elliot, Celine, Alex Monroe, Olivia Rubin, Philip Treacy, Sass & Bide and Twenty8Twelve. Tickets from £13, until Sunday.
5-10pm, Somerset House, Temple, WC2R

Into Good Habits

Start the weekend early with some chilled tunes from hip hop group Lazy Habits, fresh from storming the summer festivals and supporting Mos Def on his recent UK tour. The eight-strong hip hop collective will be playing their latest single 'Memory Banks' featuring soulful singer Baby Sol, as well as their trademark MCs. £9

8.30pm, Vortex Jazz Club, London N16

Pretty Graphic

Graphic designer Saul Bass was a veritable legend of the film industry, and if you've seen Psycho, West Side Story, The Shining, or any number of Hollywood classics, you'll be familiar with his work. In collaboration with the British Film Industry, the Shoreditch's Kemistry Gallery is holding an exhibition of his striking movie poster designs. Film buffs and art fiends, you know what to do. Free

10am-6pm, Kemistry Gallery, London EC2A

Cloud Nothings

Cloud Nothings is Dylan Baldi, a 19-year-old from Cleveland. After a series of EPs, the songwriter moved his workplace from the parental home to a studio in Baltimore. The talented musician is performing his modern interpretation of power-pop at the Camp tonight. Catch him before he is famous! £6

7.30pm, Camp London, City Road, EC1Y

London Underground Photography

South Londoner Yusuf Ozkizil's passion for photography started four years ago when he visited family in Turkey. They spoke no English, he next to no Turkish, which is why he spent most of his time there taking pictures. His habit of walking around with his camera hasn't stopped since and he's taken some quite amazing photos of London. My favourite are the Tube photos. Yusuf's Flickr stream / interview with Yusuf

Face Hunting In New York City

Yvan Rodic is a well-known blogger. When he started his streetstyle blog Facehunter five years ago, the Swiss-born and London-based Rodic was a nobody in the fashion world. These days, Facehunter is a regular fixture at fashion weeks but Rodic also 'hunts' in less expected places such as Kiev, São Paulo, and Reykjavik. Nowness accompanied him for a day in NYC and made a short documentary about him and his search for faces. Watch

Grub With Us

Thanks to the website grubwith.us, locals from NYC, Chicago and San Francisco can meet new people while having dinner with strangers. The users themselves book a certain amount of spaces at a restaurant and then publish the info on the website. The other uses can join in and have dinner with the other strangers. Great idea. Hopefully they expand to London soon!

Hi Gast, you have:
Get your hips in synch

Salsa rules tonight in the open (sunny?) air at Spitalfields. Maria Palmieri, director of Salsatropical and professional native Latin American dancer will get beautiful men and women spinning and toe tapping to a frenetic, infectious beat. Salsa in the sun for free and perhaps even a cheeky glass of sangria to finish, now that’s what Thursday nights were made for! 
7-8.30pm, Bishops Square, E1

Scones n jazz

Although the whole 'Culture Square' development surrounding the Vortex Jazz Club feels somewhat out of place in Dalston it is a nice retreat from the busy streets of North-East London. Even more so on Thursdays at 3pm, when the Vortex serves tea and homemade scones at its bar downstairs. And if that sounds too boring you can step out on the square and try a Jerk Chicken from the little Jamaican take-away next to the Vortex.

The Vortex Jazz Club, 11 Gillett Square, N16

London living: outdoor movie nights

Somerset House is a spectacular building in the heart of London, sitting between the Strand and the River Thames. During the summer it hosts open-air concerts and films, contemporary art and design exhibitions and free guided tours of spaces usually hidden to visitors. I’m excited about the Film Four Screen showing a series of movies in the courtyard, but hurry it ends on August 8th.
Somerset House, Strand, WC2R

Guerrilla art documentary

The one hour documentary Guerilla Art is about a new generation of street artists: the ones who started with rough street art and made it to the world's best galleries. There is Banksy for instance, who achieves immense sales volumes these days. In addition, other pioneers such as Futura, Rammelzee and Blek le Rat talk about both their street and gallery art. Watch it!

The passion for music

Do you make music? Or do you just love music? Then you should check out the platform restorm.com. Anyone working in the music industry can set up a profile and add any kind of background information such as music gigs, and network with like-minded people. Besides, fans are provided with the latest news of their favourite bands and clubs. Feel the passion!
