OMG it’s that time of year again already. I guess I’d better put on my best Lowes T-Shirt and Black Primark Hoodie, nonconfrontational Pentax camera, and head down to (the streets outside) London Fashion Week’s monolithically closed headquarters building…. and see what’s what among the people dying to be seen, and the people dying to see them.
Here’s how it went down.
Day 1. Friday, 14th September 2018.
Day 2. Saturday, 15th September 2018.
The challenge of photographing outside London Fashion Week on the weekend isn’t so much the photography as it is trying to avoid the a55ho1e fur-is-murder-so-is-meat-vote-veganism-tofu-lives-matter protesters. (And as always, a clarification : I don’t object to the message or the morality, I specifically dislike the protesters).
Day 3. Sunday, 16th September 2018.
I came in early for this one, and didn’t stay too long. I did enjoy the Peruvian Street food on the Southbank before heading back to StA, though…
Day 4. Monday, 17th September 2018.
A quick check on the file data for today reveals that I dedicated a grand total of four (YES, FOUR) minutes to London Fashion Week, and that’s because I dedicated lunchtime and the entirety of afterwork-time to the (pssst… more important) premiere of “A Simple Favour”, featuring the oh-so fashionable Paul Feig, Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.
Still, you can do a lot in four minutes. Or … um…so I’ve been told…
Day 5. Tuesday, 18th September 2018.
Sadly, I had to give this day a miss, but here’s some fashion from yesterday’s “A Simple Favour” premiere by way of apology / bonus:
So… that was 2018. For a second time. Historically speaking I should (hopefully) get one more bite at the cherry that is FASHION, as the Fashion Awards are held later in the year and I try to get to those.
Until (hopefully, wherever I am) next time!
