Barrie Blogs: Neil’s Blog Takeover – Hello from London Fashion Week !Leave a Comment
London Fashion Week spring/Summer 2015 took place 12th – 16th September at Somerset House Showspace in the heart of London’s West End.
Preparing the Models
This is the 3rd time working in collaboration with Bora Aksu and the editorial backstage styling team. The theme and inspiration for the look created for the catwalk was from a 1930’s ballerina, so we created textured bound low side ponytails to ensure the hair of the models were worn in an effortless way, with the bound ponytails signifying the discipline and strength of ballet.
I was called upon to assist with the final line up of the models, this is the time when the hair is closely checked for any last minute touch ups (and I literally mean with seconds to spare!) before the models struts down the catwalk and into the lenses of awaiting photographers and journalists who are all wanting to get the first image out there.
This was an incredible experience, topped off by the fact that the Bora Aksu catwalk graced the front page of the Independent newspaper!
This photo is one of my favourites as it shows all the models walking the final walk down the catwalk, marking the end of another fantastic show.
