If you have seen any of my social media pages over the weekend you might have seen me posting about my trip to London Fashion Weekend with Canon. This is my 3rd time there as it’s a great way to see this seasons trends and get inspiration. Oh and do some cheeky shopping too.
It all came about when I found this amazing opportunity via good old Twitter and a local company called Wex Photographic. I send off my email with the details and then I just, to be honest, I forgot about it. And a few weeks ago an email pops up in my inbox saying I’ve secured a place! Cue a very excited Jenny!
My day started with a brief by Canon at One Aldywch! By far the poshest hotel I’ve ever seen! There we had a talk from the Canon team and a really great presentation by guest photographer Tristan Fewings. Who was so nice, and so down to earth. After this it was time for a little Q&A where I sat there and listened to EVERYTHING and scribbled down as much tech jumble as I could, as I at the moment only know enough about my camera to get by. But now I have a little more camera knowledge and it feels great! We then collected our photographers passes and headed over to Somerset House for the first show ‘DESIGNER’ which was Halston Heritage! I made my way into the catwalk tent and found that the front row seated spots of the pit were already taken! Photographers are like ninjas! I snuck around and ended up in a kinda 2nd row kneeling position! Yep leg workout for me! I was just off centre which I thought was pretty good! We were allowed to walk around Somerset House, which we all know I was gonna do! As I wanted to have a look at some of my fave brands that show there. The next show was ‘TREND’ and it was complied of 4 trends for S/S, floral, monochrome, shimmer and 70’s! This time I was standing 2nd row ish again and off centre again! Perks of being small!
I had the BEST day, thanks again to Wex Photographic and Canon for such an amazing day and getting the chance to pretend to be a catwalk photographer.
Here are some of my best shots from the day, some are a little blurry but it was my first time at this level, and I am so happy with them. And can’t wait to experiment more with catwalk photography at Norwich Fashion Week!
