KOSMONAUT PRESENTS The Mancorialist exhibition

KOSMONAUT PRESENTS The Mancorialist exhibition

From Thursday 28th May, infamous Manchester street style blog The Mancorialist will exhibit a collection of its street photography at Kosmonaut, in its first ever public show.


Named three years ago as an ode to New York fashion photographer The Sartorialist, The Mancorialist has built up a portfolio of over 1500 street portraits.  Believing that the best way to define a city is not by its architecture but by its people, The Mancorialist captures the heart of the city by documenting its abundance of diverse characters.


The Mancorialist comments “Manchester was a trailblazer for the industrial world, and while the mills have gone, the city is now pushing boundaries in style and creativity. In this exhibition I have tried to celebrate the essence of Manchester's varied styles, characters, trends and locations so editing it into twelve portraits wasn't easy!.”


At the exhibition launch, leading Manchester stylists and bloggers will take on a street style challenge. Sophie Benson, Zoe Hancock, Rosie Glow and Laura Ngiam will use pre-loved clothing from Goodstock (Vinspired) to style up models, who will then be photographed. Guests are also encouraged to donate their unwanted clothing, to support the charity and maybe see it featured in the style challenge.


Kosmonaut comments “We’ve followed The Mancorialist since it launched in 2012, it’s developed into a key element of Manchester’s style identity and beautifully presents the city’s multi layered outlook. We’re honored to be hosting its first public exhibition and have built a programme of fashion, style and creative events around it to celebrate it.”

In honour of The Mancorialist exhibition, Kosmonaut will be hosting an evening of tailor made talks from the world of fashion design, photography and branding.
