A Child of the Jago

I know. But I just had to upload Jacko at Jago (and the quirky but awesome Vivienne Westwood).

Menswear Day London Fashion Week

Boy am I glad this fashion week is over. It is always so exhausting and draining. And I didnt even go to that many shows. It is the waiting, the people around you, the profusion of information and beauty you see all the time. Anyway, the last day was, again, the menswear day and it started with an amazing show by Carolyn Massey followed by J.W. Anderson. James Long presented a very wearable collections and Christopher Shannon was, well, Christopher Shannon!
I am very proud of all the London menswear designers. So many pieces that were cool but still wearable and all in all they showed what makes London such an exciting fashion city.
You could see all of that again at the Fashion East installations. SIBLING's new 'monster' collection is big fun, Lou Dalton's tartan suits and knitted jumpers were adorable and I want all of these pieces. The day ended for me at A Child of the Jago. Front row was Janet Jackson and Vivienne Westwood. And the clothes were fun. Not really my kind of thing but I understand where it's coming from... and it was the most fun show I have ever been to!

Boys and Tablecloths

Here you can see some images I took of photographer Jolijn Snijders at work. I just love her fashion photography, especially of boys. Her photography is very honest, cheeky and simple, sexy and direct. I can't wait to be working with her. She is also the creative director of I Love Fake magazine. You will definitely enjoy her photos as much as I do. She has photographed boys such as William Eustache, Cole Mohr and Alex Dunstan. Check out her work at ilovefake.com

Central Saint Martins Graduate Show

One of the highlights of London Fashion Week is for sure the CSM show showcasing the work of the 20 MA graduates in menswear, womenswear, textiles and knitwear. Former graduates of that course include for example Christopher Kane, Ashish, Kim Jones, Jonathan Saunders, Richard Nicoll and of course Alexander McQueen. As a tribute to McQueen who commited suicide 2 weeks ago his own words were played at the beginning of the show about his time at Saint Martins. A very touching and appropriate tribute.
It was very hard to take any good pictures during the show as the models were really quickly trotting on the catwalk, which is quite reasonable considering the fact that 20 different collections were shown. I will post some of the nicest images here.
