A busy month this month. But an obvious winner. Was the razamataz that is London Fashion Week.
Occasionally my Press Photography takes me to London. So London Fashion Week, for me at least, consisted of three days and 14 shows. Some good, some fantastic. Here’s a quick retrospective from this seasons extravaganza! No apologies for the massive post.
There was the usual sideline of celebrity appearances and media crushes. Fortunately I didn’t have to do battle this year.
Zoe Jordan opened the week with her catwalk show at Somerset House and set the standard for the week.
Bora Aksu showing that the devil really is in the detail with intricate head pieces.
KTZ – extravagant and imaginative. Definitely one of the highlights of the week for me.
Felder Felder were next and even though my marked up area was in a shocking position way off to the side managed to get this.
Saturday was an unearthly early start but that was soon forgotten as the days show are traditionally the most extravagant. The 09:00 show was DAKS.
The Jasper Conran show was erm very red!
John Rocha as always didn’t disappoint. Sometimes you get lucky when someone else pops a flash just at the right time to make your frame that much better.
Todd Lynn. I’m still trying to work out about the nose rings that all the models were wearing. If anyone knows I’d love to know why!
The remainder of the day I changed venue to Free Masons Hall for Fashion Scout and quite by chance caught Bernard Chandran’s show and glad I did.
I was actually there to see Ashley Isham. Long flowing fabrics are obviously dangerous to wear take note kids!
One of the shows I always go out of my way to see is Pam Hoggs this season she managed to out Hogg even herself with the normal display of less is more. It was a stunning show drawing heavily on Japanese influences.
The last presentation I covered was the Pringle of Scotland presentation at the Bankside Gallery.
Any comments as usually are welcomed.
