This Friday myself and Claire Stuart's events company 'In the Company of Wolves' are producing a fashion catwalk show to help launch the film screening of 'Pyuupiru' at the Glasgow Film Festival.

Tickets have now sold out for the film and catwalk show but it is possible to get on the guestlist for the afterparty with guest DJ Pam Hogg. Just email events@glasgowfilm.org for your chance to gain access to this exclusive event.

Pyuupiru is one of the brightest stars of the Japanese art scene, renowned for eye-popping handmade costumes and being a work of art in her own right. Director Daishi Matsunaga is an old friend who has captured every moment of Pyuupiru’s rise to fame from first highheeled strut in the coolest clubs in Japan to cult status. The trust of friendship is behind an extraordinary documentary that provides a fascinating insight into the private life of Pyuupiru. Born a boy, she decided that that her true gender was female. The emotional and physical upheavals of becoming herself, finding love and seeking acceptance are all revealed in a fascinating portrait of an artist as both creator and creation.
