My Beauty is Iain Aitch‘s artistic social history of Margate & Cliftonville beauty queens, taking in shows at the Lido, Dreamland, Winter Gardens, in workplaces, hotels, bars and nightclubs. I am seeking women who took part in any of these shows (whether they won or not) up until 1995. My search includes any shows in the CT9 area, including Westbrook, St John’s and Hartsdown. Contact me on here or email on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call on 01622 322007 or leave a message via the My Beauty Facebook page.
Iain Aitch is a Margate-born author, journalist and artist who has written extensively about Margate, its history and its creative legacy. His previous Margate art project – Cachet – was shown at Turner Contemporary. This work focussed on youth subculture in Margate as a creative force.
