You can't tell from the photos but we spent most of our time hiding in the car and in dark stairways from the rain and from a bird that was attacking its own reflection. I guess we should've seen it coming since we did ignore the little storm cloud on the weather forecast but it turned out to be a memorable 5-year reunion-slash-photoshoot nonetheless that was just one of life's challenges to make the best of what you've got. Although, being grateful wasn't exactly on our minds as we ran across the rooftop towards shelter screaming as the rain soaked us through our clothes.
Presenting.... my very first, official free to-do template download!
Along with fashion and sudoku, I'm pretty obsessed with stationery and to-do lists and all things Kikki-K and Typo etc etc... and it only just hit me when I was searching online for some templates - why not make some of my own?
Okay, that's actually kind of a bad idea because I'm not very good with design/illustration and I can't draw for the life of me (all I'm decent at is pressing a shutter button really) but I thought you guys might enjoy a new printable to-do list every now and then, along with an inspirational quote.
Photographers lingering on the walls poised with their finger on the shutter button, groups of young ombre-haired girls walking down the stairs clad in head-to-toe designer and appropriately bright colours and clashing prints... sound vaguely familiar?
Fashion week is as much about what front row guests are wearing as what's presented on the runway. (This article discusses one view regarding this topic.) Running from show to show and dealing with door people that eyed you warily even as you showed them your pass was overwhelming and exhausting but even while I was sitting in the not-so-comfortable media pit, swearing that I'd end up with permanent ass bruises, it was undeniably amazing being surrounded by like-minded individuals with a mutual love for fashion.
I'm glad I ended up with plenty of shots despite only attending one day and I know I'm late in posting these but posts with a few of my runway favourites from Vanishing Elephant, Watson x Watson and Raffles to come soon. Hope you're enjoying seeing FW through my eyes (or... should that be lens?...) x
