Fashion week faves: Meadham Kirchhoff

March 1st, 2012


I spent most of London Fashion Week either going on about how much I was looking forward to Meadham Kirchhoff or beaming about how much I loved it. After seeing photos of last year’s all-dancing pastel extravaganza I was totally thrilled to be invited by Luisa Via Roma to come and illustrate my favourite looks from the show. The photo pit had the security of the average Presidential state visit, but I ended up getting a pretty great spot halfway down the runway. Happily, the girls stopped right there to fling glitter from their pockets and have a bit of disco dance, so it was perfect. Everyone’s faces were basically the human embodiment of the ^__________^ emoticon for the whole show (trust me, for day 5 when everyone is exhausted, that is basically unbridled joy right there). Anyway, there’s no point me gushing on, you can see way more of my photos here!








All photos and drawings are mine. Thank you Luisa Via Roma for taking me along!

  3. This is different from your style, at least the one I’m used to (and I’ve been following your blog for more than 5 years!), but I love every single one of them – how could I not?

    I think it’s a little more realistic than my usual? The collection had so many textures going on, thought it would be good to try show them off! Since getting my Wacom cintiq tablet, I’ve been going in a more detailed direction in general though.

    Thank you for sticking with me for such a long time, that’s amazing! x

  24. This is incredible. The illustrations are so beautiful/colourful/quirky/fun and your detail shots are literally blowing my mind. There is SO MUCH happening and it feels so right. I could stare at these photos for ages and I’d LOVE to have a printed/framed version of the first illustration inside my (tiny) walk-in closet. I think it would remind me every morning that getting dressed should always be fun and to look on the bright side of things. xx
