26th Feb 2016 - FASHION!

Although this site is primarily concerned with Premieres, there is a natural extension into Film Awards, and thus any kind of Awards, which then loosely tie into Events... and before you know it, taking photos outside The 2015 British Fashion Awards justifies The 2016 Elle Fashion Awards, which since I'm already photographing London Fashion week and have been for years, finally induced me to transfer across two journals I'd already put on Redbubble for 2013 (which are now here and here) ... then backfill the ones for 2012, 2014 and 2015... and then the one for 2016.

Karl Lagerfeld regards me with a look approximating to "and have you ever attracted a female of the same species with what you're wearing?" and a "thought not" that didn't wait for my answer at The 2015 British Fashion Awards.

Now... when I say I 'photograph London Fashion Week', I've never been within sight of or even fluffy handbag throwing distance of so much as a catwalk. No... London Fashion Week is mostly about the Beautiful People showing clothes designed by The Talented People to be talked about by The Media People so they can be purchased by The Wealthy People and The Famous People. Which is to say The Ordinary People are not required....and yet weirdly I/we do it anyway. (Much like how I photograph premieres, really, when you think about it)

So for parts of five different London Fashion Weeks (there are two every year), my camera, my flagging self-respect, an apology note from my superego, and I headed down to Somerset House to photograph the general goings-on OUTSIDE (but close to) the hub of London Fashion Week:

* London Fashion Week 2012.1 -
* London Fashion Week 2013.1 -
* London Fashion Week 2013.2 -
* London Fashion Week 2014.1 -
* London Fashion Week 2015.1 -

I can wait here all day....

I can wait here all day....

And then, just when it seemed all too easy, the powers that be moved the whole shindig from the classy, open, mingle-friendly space of Somerset House to...uh... a multistorey parking garage on busy narrow street in London.

So... you know..... enjoy! *kiss* *kiss*
