One day in 2012 I got a phone call at my bookshop Claire de Rouen. It was Kim Sion, with her sultry yet ‘means business’ voice, asking me for advice on behalf of her younger brother the photographer and magazine editor Theo Sion, about magazine distribution. I ended up hosting launch parties for Hot and Cool (the magazine in question, which Theo edits with Alice Goddard), and at one of the first, Kim lent me her fake fur coat so I could go and buy a burrito from Chipotle across the road in the most glamorous way. Kim cares about these things! That’s how I met her. And now, 6 years later, we are at the helm of a new gallery project together. Sion and Moore is a meeting of two minds who feel that that things have changed – in the art world, the photography world and the fashion world. Our manifesto would have a whole page devoted to anti-hierarchy.
