Best of TG
by Yasmin TG
If you’ve been following us on social media over the past couple of weeks, you’ll see we’ve been sharing lots of classic moments and images from previous Torture Garden parties to honour what should have been our 30th birthday celebrations! It’s been such an incredible journey looking through all the archive photos – I haven’t been there for a lot of it (I’m not that much older than the club), but seeing the incredible creativity that’s come to the club (both onstage and off), is inspiring!
With that in mind, we thought we’d share some best of gallery posts, starting with some of the iconic designers that have graced the TG Stage over the years! There’s way too many to include all in one post, and safe to say we do have some gaps in our photo archive, so we don’t have photos of everyone!
Here’s some of our favourite fashion show moments (in no particular order)… If you have any of your own favourites, or you think we’ve missed anyone, please feel free to comment below!
