Put Your Best Foot Forward

So as i mentioned before the brief was to capture the essence of Fashion Week. So we did a quick ideas swap at the meal and came up with a few words to describe Fashion Week; Electric, Eccentric, Exciting, Extravagant and Buzzing. What One word would use to describe LFW?

With Camera in hand off I went to snap what I believe truly expressed LFW in all it's glory. Street style has become a massive phenomena especially with the rise of fashion blogs, Somerset house courtyard was brimming with photographers and those in front of the camera displaying their fantastic assembles. I must admit I have a serious shoe fetish and it is the first thing I notice when I meet someone. I think the choice of shoes can really say alot about the person and often they have worked their outfit purely around the footwear. I was instantly drawn to these lovely beauties below.


Both Acne (above and below)

Can you believe these are Topshop lovelies

Rupert Sanderson- Apparently the most comfortable shoes in the world according to the wearer

Fringed sandals from Browns

Atalanta Weller

Named as Elle's One to watch whose shoes 'will blow your mind'. She has designed shoes for the likes of Gareth Pugh and Sinha- Stanic and her s/s 2010 collection is a 'exciting dilution of her startling concepts that will guarantee to make her name' (extracts from Elle oct 09 issue)

Jill Sander gorgeous pink sling-back sandals and customised Nike high tops.

Gorgeous Bright Ashish Wedge ankle boots- Were originally destined for the Ashish Topshop Range however were never released... I don't know why they are amazing!

  1. What a brilliant post hun! Love all the shoe piccies. I'm sure the top pair are Marni though? I'm still so jel that you girls went backstage when I wasn't with you!! But then again I'm glad you did because I was searching for a close up of the Ashish runway shoes. My my they are as spectacular as I'd hoped :)

  2. You kno what hun u could be right... I'm sure she told me Armani but i could of heard that wrong i guess.... any which way they are still so lustful!

  3. oh god, I die!

    so many incredible pairs of shoes.. I would kill for a pair of Acnes; you have a great eye!

  4. Oh I love to photograph people's shoes - the added bonus is you can kind of (almost) do it without them noticing. Although at one presentation I photographed a lady's shoes and just as I clicked the camera she saw me and walked off in a kind of 'f*** you, I never said you could photograph my shoes' way. It took me by surprise, I mean, it's fashion week, everyone takes pics of everything don't they?
