Fashion month is over. It’s a bittersweet feeling – I’m certainly glad to see my schedule free up ever so slightly but I’ll miss the people I’ve met and the whole crazy scene of it. It’s really something to be seen to be believed – the sheer number of photographers and hangers on, people dressed to the nines – some of which aren’t even attending the shows or working to create content, but simply parading around, trying to share their vision of personal style with that special corner of the internet that’s so fashion obsessed. Personally, I’m a fan of it – the ‘circus’ that accompanies the shows circuit. So much of it is just beautiful and fun – and all in all a labour of love. For the hoards of street style photographers – its a kind of sport. When Leigh Lezark, Giovanna Battaglia, Hanne Gaby Odiele or any other street style icon turn up to a show, there’s a photo frenzy – and for me its really such a thrill. You have to move pretty quickly to get the right shot  and wait in the right position to score one thats more unique than the one that every other blogger is scoring. My favourite images are those that capture the whole and the mood – maybe because thats the part I find most exciting. Of course its really a buzz to see that incredibly unique way Hanne has styled that one-off Balenciaga piece – but watching her ham it up and seeing how the photographers surround her, jumping and diving to get the right angle is so entertaining. That’s more of the scene I love to capture! The crowds and the energy and the colour! I’ve loved every minute being a part of it. Paris is an incredibly gorgeous city, can’t wait for next season! Thanks so much Nordstrom and The Thread for letting me be involved in Fashion Week, thanking my lucky stars for the whole experience. See more of my fashion week coverage HERE.

Photo highlights – Sighting photographer and icon Ellen Von Unwerth, Giovanna and Anna seriously hamming it up for a good 20 minutes outside the Moncler show, the Ellery and Kenzo shows – and of course, incredible Paris itself.
