Sophia Webster and Rinse announce Mount Street Sessions with Sinead Harnett
The Sophia Webster x Rinse Mount Street Sessions see two influential brands in fashion and music curate a series of performances. Celebrating artists that connect both Sophia Webster and Rinse’s worlds throughout 2017.
For the first in the series the Sophia Webster x Rinse Mount Street Sessions features Sinead Harnett, recorded at the Sophia Webster Mount Street store. Sinead performed four tracks, ‘If You Let Me’, ‘Rather Be With You’ and ‘Love To Lose’ taken from her self-titled EP, as well as a cover of the Otis Redding classic ‘White Christmas’.
Music has always played an important role in Sophia’s inspiration and creative process and she regularly listens to Rinse whilst designing her collections. The relationship has a long standing history with Rinse providing the soundtrack to all Sophia’s London Fashion Week presentations since her debut in Spring/Summer 2013.
The likeminded brands have a collaborative partnership, Rinse curates the playlists in Sophia’s Mount Street Store and Sophia makes guest appearances on air, most recently as part of Geeneus’s Friday Rinse show.
