Last weekend the London Fashion Weekend saw out the end of February and closed the main London Fashion Week at Somerset House. I’m not one for fashion, but this event proved something not to be missed – offering a chance to get up close to the catwalk by selling photographer tickets which allowed access to the photography box, providing unprecedented views of the end of the runway.
Events selling photographer tickets do seem very, very rare – but something which I’ve thought about for quite some time; why some events don’t sell tickets for photographers (even at a premium if they must) is beyond me – after all, the organisers normally always are in favour of us and love the free publicity we photographers provide – maybe they can learn a thing or too from the London Fashion Weekend event!
So, without further a do, below are are a few highlights of the shots I took while I was there of the models showcasing outfits from a whole range of designers, including Betty Jackson, Jasper Conran and more.
