Today we worked 2 shows (Marios Schwab and Roksanda Ilincic) bringing us to a total of 6 since the beginning of fashion week on Saturday. How exhausting!
So as promised, I will give a breakdown of the shows we worked starting with Julien Macdonald, which took place last in Mayfair last night. I am choosing to talk about this one first just because I can’t seem to get this show off my mind. This show was my absolute FAVORITE thus far. The venue was in Mayfair at a beautiful, old, gothic church. The music and lights were outrageously edgy – flashing lights, thrashing Korn and other rock music, the entire show just reminded me of rebellious teenagers, and ironic how it all took place in a church.This show was my absolute FAVORITE thus far.

Main themes were evening gowns, flowy sheer maxi skirts/dresses with leather jackets and furs. The Swarovski collection of dresses was outstanding. This show had a ton of VIP – notably Hilary Alexander, Bianca Jagger, Emma Rose, Sadie Frost, Jaime Winstone and Yasmin Le Bon. The venue was packed and press were going crazy with inquiries. The show ended up starting pretty late, so Hilary Alexander (major UK fashion journalist) decided to make a bit of a scene and walk the catwalk – it was pretty funny. The show ended up being so good though, that Julien himself got a standing ovation. Shows do happen to be quite a bit of stress and chaos, but when she show begins it all becomes worth it.
Getting ready for the show! We all have to wear the same thing – Tucker blouses, black trousers, and hair slicked back in a bun.
