London Fashion Week Style: Outside and Inside


Backstage and on the street during a fashion show in London.

London is perhaps the most difficult fashion week to define. I love it; I love the old Somerset House days before Instagram destroyed the experience, before influencers and editors came to see the shows wearing designer brands, when one could walk around around that place and came across some wonderful people just standing around, chatting, sipping coffee.

Back then, I just asked a designer’s press agent for access. It’s surprising how many of them say yes. They don’t pay me, but I don’t work for them, and I’m not obligated to share my pictures with them.

If they have the space and they like my work, I am allowed to go backstage, where the photography is completely different from the street. The space is tight, there are too many people and there is an extremely small window to be able to collect images.

This season, in both New York and London, I saw several shows where the entire cast was black models. It’s long overdue, and I hope it’s not just a fad, as is often the case with catwalk casting.

In the end, I realized that I really miss the change of tempo, the oscillation between the street and the performances. Being able to experience all aspects of events helps to bring London’s identity into better focus. It may be smaller than it was before the pandemic, but there are still a lot of people involved.

In a way, it’s strange to think about London as the smallest of the big fashion weeks. It’s always at its best when it’s not trying to compete directly with its bigger brethren, but instead adopting a semi-punk attitude, tolerant of interesting characters and a bit of liveliness. motion.
