FASHION VICTIM - The Musical! announces a glamorous cast which take to the catwalk from 21st June

FASHION VICTIM - The Musical! 

Casting is announced for Fashion Victim – The Musical!, a thoroughly modern morality tale of style-crossed lovers set in the cutthroat world of la mode, being staged in a specially created catwalk arena inside The Cinema Museum in south London from Saturday 21 June - Sunday 6 July.

Joining the previously announced fashion model and actor Arron Blake, who is playing the pivotal role of Tarquin Brockhutch, from the fictional hit TV show The Only Way Is Trust Fund, who catches the eye of social climber Mimi Steel, are:

Carl Mullaney is Jake Spangle, stylist to the stars. Carl has just finished three years in Les Miserables, in a number of roles including Bamatabois and understudy for Grantaire and Thenardier. He was Booby Shevalley in the 2005 London production of Saucy Jack & The Space Vixens.

Rosie Glossop is Mimi Steel, the girl on the make in the world of London fashion.

James Wilkinson plays Cedric Chevalier, the Parisian Londoner who is a push over for a pretty girl and falls into the Mimi honeytrap.

Aimee Barrett is Chloe Bogarde, Mimi’s London best friend and her launch pad/foot in the door when the Toronto minx first hits London. Chloe watches ringside at the antics of Mimi Steel and her stop-at-nothing tactics.

Model and actress Camilla Rutherford is also confirmed as the first of a series of celebrities making fabulous cameo appearances in the show.

The hi octane dance troupe is made up of Matt Walker who has danced with One Direction, Mariah Carey, Cheryl Cole and at the High School Musical 3 premiere. Charlotte Scally was a finalist in BBC1’s So You Think You Can Dance and dance double for Brooke in Kick Ass 2 and also appeared dancing on The X Factor. Dancers also include newcomer Mercedes Bailey.

Launched in 2013 as a pilot pop-up theatre event to coincide with London Fashion Week, Fashion Victim – The Musical!, by Toby Rose, will now get a two-week run, staged in a specially created catwalk arena inside The Cinema Museum in Elephant and Castle, south London, from Saturday 21 June - Sunday 6 July.

Press night is Monday 23 June at 8.00pm

Fashion Victim – The Musical! is a must-see for all front row fashionistas in the making… and audiences are actively encouraged to boo, hiss or cheer – as they see fit – the chutzpah of Mimi Steele in a story of laughs, love and sharp practices in the cutting edge world of fashion.

Fashion Victim – The Musical! is written by Toby Rose, creator of Discotivity, which premiered at the 2007 Edinburgh Fringe, starring Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus. Rose is also the brains behind the annual Palm Dog Awards at Cannes Film Festival. 


The director is Robert McWhir, Artistic Director of the Landor Theatre, whose recent acclaimed shows include I Love You Because, Curtains and Ragtime. Celebrity choreographer Ryan Jenkins from So You Think You Can Dance, can’t wait to sink his teeth into some more mean dance moves. Songwriter Cayelan Mendoza is from Stomp; Musical Director Michael Webborn; and Deborah Andrew - ENO, Glyndebourne, Donmar Warehouse Lloyd Weber - costume supremo, is all systems a go go; and Lighting Designer Richard Lambert will make everyone look fabulous!
