I met Carly outside the Yves Saint Laurent show at PFW A/W13.
There was such an interesting array…

as some of you may have already seen, my picture of David Gandy from LFW A/W 2012 has appeared on the vogue.co.uk website on the ‘David Gandy’s Blog’ page and I’m super excited that my image is on Vogue?!

David Gandy after the James Long Show @ Courtyard Show Space> Somerset House - LFW A/W 2012: Menswear Day
This was a personal highlight for me, David Gandy is one of my icons in the fashion world and I met him and even managed to get a picture of him. I did turn into a bit of a ‘crazed fan’ at one point when he walked past me and I shouted “You’re Beautiful!” and he heard me, but luckily he just turned round and laughed. 
Still, he was a very pleasant and a very fashionable man.

This was one of my favourite looks in the collection, absolutely loving the black leather jacket with the fur collar. A perfect Autumn/Winter look
This was a very ‘black’ look keeping with the winter traditions and it fit the model perfectly
The James Long show was possibly my favourite show I saw of London Fashion Week 2012

I think this is one of my favourite pictures from any of the runway shows, firstly, the men were stunning (this we can all see) and the rest of the men in the show were equally beautiful. Secondly, the clothes, I love this knit jumper [to the left], the colours are beautiful and it fits perfectly and the coat [to the right] is to die for. It’s beautifully designed, baggy, great materials and colour. (I need this coat in my life)
I’m also quite proud (if I do say so myself) of how I managed to get the picture, I wanted to try and get the two models at an angle where it almost looked as though they were battling. I think it worked to an extent

Models walk onto the runway to a very loud applause at the end of the show
James’ collection proved to be a big hit with the crowd. This guy was my personal favourite from Menswear Day.
More amazing news had to be the announcement of having more days of menswear for future Fashion Weeks and events. This is a real big thing I managed to witness and it will surely change how the world sees menswear.

“The menswear industry has been growing from strength to strength in past years and this is true testament to this, London Collections: Men will not only be a showcase for brands and designers but will form a cross cultural programme creating a festival for Menswear in what will be a truly exciting year for the UK. I would like to thank Dylan Jones as Chair of the newly formed Fashion 2012 Menswear committee and all of the members, designers and brands involved in making this work.” - Harold Tillman CBE 

these three men were handing out Mr Porter newspapers during Menswear Day of LFW A/W 2012
I liked the idea of them dressing the same so you knew who the designated ‘Mr Porters’ men were.
They all wore a pair of jeans, beautiful brown brogues, a cream woollen jumper, blue shirt, spotted blue bow tie and a yellow over coat with a blue and brown duffel bag. Very preppy
