I was in a bit of a strange spot to watch Nicole Farhi‘s show at the Royal Opera House this afternoon. I was sitting right above the bit of the backstage area where the models are prepped to get on the catwalk. Mrs Farhi herself was there, anxiously checking the tv monitor to see which editors had arrived, and most importantly, what expression was on Anna Wintour’s face…
I didn’t plan on doing backstage coverage of this show, and due to my position, it was difficult to show you the clothes in great detail, so I thought I’d embrace the documentary angle and show you a little bit of Fashion Week madness.
The collection was very simple and grown-up, with crisp whites and greys dominating the colour palette with a few fuschia, lime green or yellow pieces brightening it here and there.
Hair and make-up were pared down and natural, like many other shows this season.
