Kooky and kick-ass DIY magazine Polyester is having a birthday shebang, and there’s a party hat with your name tattooed on it. If Polyester isn’t sparking any bulbs in your noggin, it’s the intersectional feminist fashion and culture zine which made the old-school format cooler than Baddiewinkle – nuff said.

This weekend they’re embarking on a four-day birthday bonanza at Protein Studios and releasing three limited edition zines – because this party is the gift that keeps on giving.

Described as what will be an ‘immersive Birthday installation’, like a curious Alice on the brink of Wonderland, this promises to be just as strange and sensational once you step inside…
