This week I was invited at work to tag along at Nicholas Oakwell’s couture show that was held this afternoon at the lovely hotel, Clairidge’s. I was so excited when they told me I could come. I wont go into extravagant detail but it was honestly one of the best experiences ever, I am still kind of on cloud nine from it. I was there with a girl from my work, Caitlin, and we were there for James Rowe, an extremely talented hair stylist that D+V Management represents- he did all the hair for Oakwell’s show. Basically, it was my job to cover the social media aspect of the show so I was taking pictures with my camera backstage and then some at the show. I loved being in that hectic, crazy, fast-paced, yet exciting atmosphere- that is the kind of environment I thrive in. The models were stunning and the clothing even more. This was my first fashion show so I was expecting the white rolled out floor with foldable chairs everywhere– no. The set design for this show was basically a life-size part of Paris with Parisian rooftops throughout the middle of the floor that the models walked through, it was truly breathtaking when it all came together with the lights and music, it was really a story. I played around with some editing techniques as I was going through the pictures and felt the black and white versions really captured the essence and vibes of the whole show. Here are some of my favorite shots! Enjoy!
Style post #3 is featuring what I wore to the Nicholas Oakwell’s couture fashion show today at the lovely Clairidge’s hotel in London. See above post for details and pictures from this exciting event!
Satin jumpsuit: Georgina Chapman of Marchesa’s line, Pearl, for JCP (I know, shocker)
Pointy-toe flats: Dolce Vita via Free People
Watch: March Jacobs
Sunnies: bought in London at Portobello Road Market (obsessed)
Im currently obsessed with everything mod– checkerboard pattern, black and white, matte bubblegum pink lipstick and everything else from that era. To give my checkerboard print tunic a modern flair I paired it with leather leggings and some oxfords with a pop of neon. The surrounding areas of the Fashion & Textile Museum in London made for great backgrounds with bright funky colors…stay tuned for the post on the museum and other pictures!
Checkerboard tunic: F21
Leather leggings: BDG, Urban Outfitters
Neon oxfords: DSW
Cat-eye sunnies: Lulus
Sam’s striped pants and neon top also looked great with the museum!
As most know by now I am moving to London for the summer
interning with one of the biggest fashion photographers & agencies! I feel so blessed and am incredibly thankful for this opportunity! The best part is one of my best friends, Sam, got a graphic design internship in London too with the cutest store, Katie & Joe! I kept a blog for my daily adventures when I went to California and knew I would do the same for London this summer— I expect our daily life there to be nothing less than something you would see in a movie 😉 I also decided I finally need to keep up a blog with my daily photography business, sharing the lovely faces I get to photography on a weekly basis. This blog will keep you updated with not only my shoots from my business but also any personal shoots while traveling or of all my lovely friends as well as things that inspire me (and probably a little fashion). So here goes nothin’! XOXO
