London Fashion Week - Day 2

LFW Intro
We were delighted to attend the second day of London Fashion Week, and had nice seats at John Rocha, one of the UK’s truly talented high fashion designers. Naturally, this category of design usually focuses on cut and silhouette using a simple colour palette anchored in black, white, beige, taupe or the grey’s and I gasped when unexpectedly, the first of a fabulous group of bright orange pieces, which he called geranium red, hit the catwalk.

Susie Bubble
At the conclusion of the Topshop event we caught up with old friends and subjects we have photographed before. Susie Bubble was there, looking fabulously stylish as usual and we discussed the new magazine LOVE.

Phoebe Arnold
Talking of LOVE, Phoebe Arnold who we met when she was at Pop magazine, and who you may recall we photographed back then is now a fashion editor at LOVE and posed for us again.

Pixie Geldof
I also introduced myself to Pixie Geldof, who initially caught my attention because of her great eye makeup and is not only very stylish but also very nice and was kind enough to pose for a photo.

Green Cardi
Finally, if you’re a fan of all the street fashion blogs, you may agree with me that this gentleman, whose name I did not catch, would be a perfect candidate for The Sartorialist. Which, I mentioned to him and a funny coincidence; he knows Scott…

I know who he is. He is George Ryan and he works for Jenny Dyson as her mantern at Rubbish Mag.
I'm quite a fan.

Amazing Amazing post! I love all of these shots this time, wow. I really like the one that's combined with the "London Fashion week" image, and has the crowd of people. It was very interesting to see the most stylish and then some normal people around London. Thank you!

No offence, but the style is weird. I would better play some games at jocuri de indeminare than stare at their lack of imagination.
