To celebrate the launch of the AW15 collections, Westfield gave members of the public the opportunity to drop-in and be photographed by Brendan and then walk away with their portrait. Think Studio Harcourt for the modern times. At the pop-up studio, we were asked to pick a word that sums up our individual style – mine was “simple” which, although it rings true now would have made me laugh hysterically 5 years ago, when “getting dressed” meant “adding 50 more lapel pins to my jacket before leaving the house” – far from simple, you will agree.
I suppose if you’ve been a long time reader, you will have seen the evolution in my personal style from “too many lapel pins” to “just the right amount of lapel pins” aka “simple”. If you want to see the results of this great initiative, head over to Soho Square in the first week of October, as all the portraits taken by Brendan Freeman will feature in a public exhibition. Although I have shown my photography in a gallery before, I can’t say my face has ever been part of one, so this is a pretty cool first for me! The exhibition will be in Soho square between October 2nd and 4th. Feel free to come and laugh at my giant mug.
Most images from this post are mine apart from the official exhibition portrait shot by Brendan Freeman (duh!) and the behind the scenes pic.
