London Fashion Week

I'll admit, I was little apprehensive about attending London Fashion Week this season, as it was the first time going registered under my own blog. I used to cover the shows for a website I edited back when I lived in London, so having Rue Rodier on my badge was a big deal. According to the late, great Eleanor Roosevelt you should do one thing every day that scares you. I think I averaged five a day, which included wearing blue sandals over tights in the winter, hoping that it didn't rain, photographing shows and generally trying to own my presence there. To me, fashion week is (apart from the circus that surrounds it) about the art, the creativity and inspiration that has gone into each collection. I've always viewed watching a show as rather like watching a live art exhibition. It's not just about clothes and trends, but the experience of seeing them walk by live - in other words I was pretty happy (but a little overwhelmed) to be there. Anyway here are some shots from a few of my favourite presentations and shows.
