A Fashion Week Journal: Gucci Gucci Gucci


 A Fashion Week Journal: Gucci Gucci Gucci 

I always think of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang when I say Gucci.  I think about that song 'chu-chi face' - you know the one when the baron and baroness have a face off which is pure genius!  Today is the AW14 Gucci show of which I have memories of last season.  I've only waited outside one previous show in Paris which was Stella McCartney which was a crazy site to see.  It was the Opera house and when the doors opened people came flushing out of three doors in all directions, it was really crazy and I'm glad I was there because I knew that I'd never want to shoot street.
The Gucci show was very similar apart from being in a much smaller space.  Three doors opened along with the back entrance and street photographers had to choose where to stand and who to shoot in seconds otherwise your miss the person or get no photos at all!  It's a gamble and if you shoot a lesser known person you have the danger of missing a top name.  The result were some models being over shot and some not noticed at all.  When one photographer moves, they all move, and that's the way you have to do it.  I give full credit to these photographers as it so demanding and it needs alot of talent to shoot.  The above images are of model Joan Smalls outside the SS14 show Gucci.  Not only do the street style photographers want to shoot the models so do the fans and that was great to see!  On the left is of course Anna Dello Russo and Giovanna Battaglia who were more than happy to pose for photographs.  I think that if your in the fashion industry you just have to accept that people want to point a camera at your face!
