I am so pleased with how these photo’s came out, if I don’t say so myself. Then again when the Edeline Lee SS15 clothes, set, models, make-up and lighting were all on point… it would be hard not to get great shots! Read more →
It was one of those moments when I walked into a showroom and thought…I need everything here, in my life immediately! I love contradictions with my own style which is the theme for Mulberry SS15. Floral prettiness mixed with lazer-cut leather for an English Rose whatever the weather. We all know a British summer is very unpredictable – The Mulberry collection along… Read more →
I have decided to do mainly instagram coverage this LFW, which you can follow here. I will pick out my very favourite collections and activities to put on the blog. First up Paul Costelloe who has returned to LFW this season. There was a catwalk show and then a presentation after. I skipped the catwalk show as I prefer presentations overall. It’s more… Read more →
Every month I head out to the streets of the UK and look out for stylish people for Free People work. Usually in the realms of boho/grunge/tomboy/folk looks, as in keeping with the brands aesthetics. They then pick 2 looks to post on the blog for that month. I have included the 2 looks below that were picked for Sept… Read more →
Final LFW SS14 post from me! I was lucky enough to join Moroccanoil backstage once again for the Kristian Aadnevik SS14 show. Earlier on in the day I joined them backstage for Margaret Howell SS14.
The Kristian Aadnevik show was held at the Royal Horseguards hotel near Embankment. I have never stepped foot in this hotel before, but oh my! what an amazing venue for a fashion show. If anyone is looking for somewhere grand and traditional to stay in London…this is the place. Wish I had taken more photos. Read more
After spending a couple of days at LFW watching beautiful models backstage and on the catwalk, it was my turn to play model for the day. LittleBlackDress.co.uk asked 10 bloggers to be part of their AW13 lookbook and get styled up by Sassoon & Laura Mercier at The Apartment. I had so much fun taking part, who doesn’t like getting pampered. Check out the results below… Read more
Orla Kiely SS14 was the collection I was most looking forward to see this London Fashion Week. I prefer presentations over catwalks anyway; from a photography point of view they are more visual. Orla Kiely always puts on the most creative presentation at LFW and with the beautiful clothing my inner photographer cannot contain herself.
Today (well nearly yesterday) was the start of London Fashion Week. PPQ was my first show for SS14 and the last of the day.
I was a guest of Mascotte who is one of the official suppliers of LFW. They have collaborated with PPQ on a limited edition shoe which was debuted tonight. The models wore the glamorous sandals in black and purple. They include gold buckles and multiple straps for the edgy ‘London Look‘. Which they hope will appeal to their new UK consumers.
Here are a mix of backstage and show snaps…
Bora Aksu AW13 was the first show I attended on Friday. The Zoe Jordan show was beforehand, but I only managed to get into the cinema room (where the standing guests at the back of the queue get ushered to if there is an over spill). So this was the first one I photographed. I took about 200 photographs, so rather than bombarding you (as beautiful as the collection is) here is my edit.
I am not purposely continuing the LFW bandwagon. I realised I had deleted these photos thinking I had copied everything over on the card. I searched and searched for a good free card recovery software and found Recuver. It found quite a few deleted files, but not all of them as I had already started taking photos on the card again.
On Monday the Lady Gaga wearing knitwear designer Craig Lawrence was showcasing his SS13 collection in the Portico rooms in Somerset House. I didn’t actually have an invite, but I had an empty space between the Christian Blanken SS13 and DAS Collection SS13 shows and I knew this one would be fantastic to snap.
The very nice lady holding the guest-list said it would be fine to come in and to be honest, I think I was very lucky as the room was jam packed!
Supermodel Alek Wek opened the show in a gold number to a chorus of applause. DAS collection designed by Emirati sisters Reem and Hind Beljafla, set out to design the ‘must have black abaya’ They then moved on to creating the cut in different fabrics and colours. Their mission now is to take a global stage and appeal to an international audience directed to woman who want to dress moderately and elegantly – Elegant and beautiful it was.
The Christian Blanken SS13 was another presentation I photographed on behalf of Tell Us Fashion. I don’t really take that much notice of the wears when I am in full photography flow because you have to be super quick – but when I was looking at the collection after on my camera display, I just thought – I want to wear all of it SS13! Check it out!
Day 3 of LFW I went to watch the Ekaterina Kukhareva SS13 Vauxhall Fashion Scout show as a photographer for Tell Us Fashion. I took position on the floor by the photographer pit, where photographers scrutinise what camera you are using, who you are and the reason for what lenses you are using (disguised as industry chit chat). Very funny, An interesting experience to say the least. I found pit photography at music festivals to be the same too.
Day 1 of LFW and after a hour of people watching at Somerset House I made my way up to Freemasons hall in Covent Garden to photograph the Zeynep Tosun SS13 collection for Vauxhall fashion scout.
