Over the last week the fashion world has descended on the capital for London Fashion Week. Bora Aksu, the Turkish Designer, was showing his Autumn/Winter 2011 collection at Somerset House and a number of celebrities, including, Twiggy, Nicola Roberts (Girls Aloud), Laura Whitmore (MTV), Marina Diamandis and Keisha Buchanan crammed into the packed out venue.
This may sound a bit hypocritical, but there were way too many photographers at LFW, at times it felt like the Canon stand at a photography conference. How the stylists, and make up artists can do their jobs! Every other person seemed to have a camera. Some with ridiculous large soft boxes, when with today’s amazing high ISO camera sensors, one can get much better images with the available light.
All in all though, the Somerset house venue was packed out, and by the sound of the positive feedback received backstage, and the ovation at the end of the show, Bora Aksu’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection show was a huge success.
