#TBT Fashion Reportage | Bora Aksu London Fashion Week AW11


Throwback Thursday to my first ever London Fashion Week show in the BFC (British Fashion Council) tents at Somerset House. Bora Aksu's ready to wear 'Angel & Fiend' show where each strive for mastery. I adored the dark palette of steel and smokey greys and black, smacks of modern Victoriana, and administered by doll like models.

I love shooting backstage for Bora, there is alway a lovely calm but excitable vibe with Bora stiching the final details on each model himself. The hair, the makeup and details, bloggers and other photographers, makes it one of the most exciting week of my year!

Hair by Toni & Guy.

Old movie posters and book covers of Jekyll and Hyde and Sweeney Todd were good reference points. Dark motives against an air of respectability and how to incorporate both of those characteristics into one look
