Dying for fashion

Astragal found himself in the most foreign of environments recently when he attended the Architecture Foundation’s ‘Blueprint for London’ exhibition. Alarm bells started ringing when Astragal realised that the event was co-sponsored by GQ Style. The ‘definitive guide to men’s fashion’ had thrown its trilby into the ring for reasons yet to be understood. However, lured by the promise of free alcohol, Astragal staggered over to the Yard Gallery in London’s Clerkenwell only to be met by a mob of underdressed, over-coiffed dahlings. Perturbed but dying of thirst, Astragal bravely battled through the pouting poseurs, collapsing exhausted on the bar. Just imagine his disappointment when the sound of industrial Belgian techno became too much, forcing him back to more salubrious watering holes.
