Friction on the Front Lines of Fashion in LDN...

Not till the final day of LFW last season did it get crazy! For example as I got onto one knee to shoot a close-up, this mad student literally pushed in front of me to steel my shot, needless to say I was a little irritated... Knit Collar >>>>

I know a full-moon is looming but yesterday was beyond trying. Especially dealing with some of the smaller understaffed PR firms in LDN (you know who you are)...

Believe me, it's never fun having a PR person meltdown over the telephone and hang-up on you twice... The PR professional I was calling was trying to juggle too many calls simultaneously and misconstruing all their conversations, while repeatedly asking (screeching at) me "what exactly is the purpose of your call?" whilst in the same breath saying to us both "you know what you said!" as I wonder who are they, speaking to us in that tone? Small designers pay good money in good faith, to have to rely on them to promote their names...

They are all mad and the show is not actually scheduled till tomorrow... but it already seems to have kicked off... I hope that style and fashion manages to be as mad as usual, then it all will have been worth it.. because let's be honest that's what keeps people coming back to London...

Where do they take those perfect red lipstick?.. I can't find such a nice color in our shops :(

I was so unprepared at my first fashion week for people jumping in on my shots! I shot this girl with the yellow tights on that day too, I love the contrast with the lippy. And Matthew always looks ridiculously original and amazing
