I swear I wasn't particularly angry when these photos were taken. No seriously. Maybe a little stressed out but this is just my face, ok. Deal with it - I am the Jeffrey Dahmer of blogging apparently.
I was going to finish all my London Fashion Week coverage and then post these photos, taken by Jaja from July Stars at the weekend, but I am so happy with the way they came out, I had to share them with you now!
Below is the little story Jaja wrote to go with the photos.
"An exotic bird with delicate and doll-like features, she liked travelling to obscure parts of London and found rapture in secret overgrown gardens where she could hide and dream of mysterious places, creatures and spells. She embarked on these little journeys to escape from the sickly sweet scent of the other girls she lived with in a huge mansion in Mayfair. She roared with laughter with the ghosts and cried in soft focus when the majestic tiger cat walked away whispering. She danced with the birds and thought of the day her magical skills would be powerful enough to transport her to a sunny playground of delights, where cypress trees swayed peacefully in the warm evening and pink skies gently soothed the souls of all living beings."
It looks like I will be churning out London Fashion Week posts for a few more days as even after it ended, there are still some shows I haven't written about. God knows I have tried, but sometimes, you just can't post 10 articles in a row without getting fashion fatigue. So I am going to spread them out. I also wanted to use my friend Christopher James' photos rather than mine for the last few posts, as I really love them - so I am waiting for him to sort through his mountain of images.
When like me you are obsessed with interiors as much, if not more than with clothes, a collection inspired by architecture is pretty much the Holy Grail. Mary Katranzou dove deep into old issues of Architectural Digest and World of Interiors to design this collection that blew my mind into a million tiny little pieces.
Why not wear a room rather than live in it? If we wear stripes, flowers and dots, why not use mundane every day motifs and make them magical, spectacular?
On the runway at Mary Katranzou, the models became buildings floating in the old Eurostar Terminal in Waterloo. This is the type of magical moment I longed for.
