February 17th - 21st, 2017
For the last two years, London Fashion Week's Primary 'space' has been a SoHo Carpark intersection. Before that it was the opulence of Somerset House. This year, it's a large and wide pedestrian footpath across from the Australian High Commission, with a Pret at one end, a Construction Zone at the other, and a massive amount of pedestrian traffic.
Hurray for the elegance and artistry of fashion.
I'll see how many days I make it down there for.
So that was Day 1. I gotta be honest.... I like the photos, but I miss the madness. Perhaps tomorrow will bring some.
Oh, great. These Asshole protesters are back again. By which I'd like to clarify : I don't object to their views, I object to the PROTESTERS themselves. At a purely base level, they're spouting about a dozen different messages from anti-fur to animal testing to anti-meat to veganism to (if you read the chalk) f**king cannibalism (!), and if they're against Chinese (allegedly) killing dogs, then why they protest outside the Chinese embassy? Their protests are vague and ill-focussed and delivered by insipid malcontents.
And file note : if you're trying to change peoples' minds about something, one way to make absolutely certain your message is lost is by being so obnoxious that all anyone can focus on is what a bunch of annoying assholes you are. Rather than your message, say.
And because despite their undeniable enthusiasm the Fur Protesters survive on a diet low in iron and high in self-esteem, I was able to leave London Fashion Week Day 3 before they finished their megaphone test.
And that? Is the end of another London Fashion Week.
until next time *air kiss* *air kiss*
