The best of Street Style at TOPSHOP London Fashion Week 2017

If only you were here to see the thriving mass of people waiting outside Topshop runway show. The Topshop runway show is one of the most anticipated shows of the LFW schedule since they were welcomed into the LFW schedule in year 2005. It was messy and ridiculously dangerous to shoot any street style on the busy main road, but somehow we managed avoid on coming traffic for the love of photography. Hey, at least the upside was that I saw Kate Moss and her daughter, 14-year-old Lila in tow arriving at the show which was a highlight of my day.

 

London Fashion Week 2017 Day 3 Street Style

It’s already day three, and I’m noticing a common theme amongst the London Fashion goers. Plaid oversized blazers, Beige/Brown colour palettes, Balenciaga knife boots, Gucci GG Marmont belt bags, Loewe and JW Anderson handbags, and dresses over distressed denim trousers.

 

London Fashion Week 2017 Day 1 Street Style

Hello from London!

I can’t stop grinning from ear to ear that I’m actually here in London. For a long while now, all my photographer comrades have been raving about how authentic and laid back the street style is in London, and this year I decided to go experience it myself. Though day one was a slow start (day one is usually the case), I was pretty happy with what I snapped up.

After walking 25,000 steps through the alley ways and streets of London , here are the street style highlights from day 1.

A Night To Remember with Sofitel in partnership with DIOR, NGV and Mercedes Benz Australia

It still hasn’t sunk in that I have just accomplished one of my all time favourite, fashion editorial work with four high end, luxury brands. A Night to Remember is a DIOR-inspired fashion editorial which celebrates the story of friendship between four girl friends through a series of themes: from getting fashionably ready; drinking cocktails by the Sofitel’s Atrium bar; to arriving in the new Mercedes Benz E250d coupe at the NGV.

This special edition was created for Sofitel Melbourne on Collins in partnership with Dior, NGV and Mercedes Benz Australia, and I cannot begin to fathom what an enormous, yet beautiful process it has been for me both personally and professionally. My mind was completely blown away to the 2% glimpse of what it felt like to work with, and to have my work put in front DIOR Paris, is beyond my wildest dreams. If you have seen DIOR & I, you will know what I mean. The angst, control and the tremendous value they place on their brand and product is formidable.

As excited as I am to attend the Dior GALA and exhibition, I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with Sofitel, and to my incredible team of talents to produce the following series of images. I hope my story will inspire you to believe in yourself and keep creating. Love to you all xxx
