Fashion Week

So as im sure you are all aware yesterday marked the end of London Fashion Week for another season. I manged to get involved in a bit of stuff through the lovely Alexis Knox who i met through working with Emma Bell. So after an amazing night at coldplay i had to get up and catch a train in the morning to go and meet Russell a.k.a 'Random Bangle' to help him with the finishing touches on his stuff for Designer Ziad Ghanem.

If you have'nt seen any Random Bangle peices here is an image taken from the previous collection which he did for Ziad Ghanem.


It was great to go and help out and see how Russell makes and constructs his pieces i love being able to see how other people work and what their inspirations are. After a day of cutting and sewing i got back home to get some sleep as i'd arranged to help out at the show the next day. That night i had a call from Alexis needing me to do her a favour as two of her interns had cancelled. The plan for the next day was basically get to the Notion Magazine office for 8.30 am to collect suitcases of clothes that needed to be taken to Birmingham and dropped off for a shoot then get back to convent garden for the show. My alarm went off very early the next morning!

I managed to get to Notion offices dead on 8.30 met the other intern who would be joining me on the trip collected to suitcases and jumped in a cab to Euston. It was a challenge trying to move so many suitcases its quite difficult trying to drag 3 fairly big sized at one time but i created my own technique in the end. Anyway we got to Birmingham jumped in another cab which took us on a bit of a tour trying to find the right place to deliver them to but eventually we found it. Once we handed over the clothes we signed collected the money for the travel and headed back to London for this...


We got to the Vaxhual venue for about 3 o'clock was informed which model i would be dressing and got him into his fist outfit. The show was in collaboration with Fire Trap the denim brand so there was a lot of rewored denim involved! Some amazing shapes were created using triangles and geometric patterns. I know how difficult they are to sew since i used a similar concept in my creative cut project. Ziad used the less conventional models to give more of an impact they all seemed to have that special something about them and a striking look different to what most designers usually go for.

Wow, that cream bodysuit on the final gentleman... I love how graphic it is. The pointy hips on the body is great as well. I love unusual silhouettes like that. I wish I had more of them in my wardrobe...
