A Fashion Week Journal: SS13 Carolina Herrera

 
A Fashion Week Journal: SS13 Carolina Herrera

The image on the left is of my first catwalk show SS13 Rebecca Minkoff and on the right is SS13 Caroline Herrera.  It was at this show where I first saw Anna Wintour on the front row and the majority of people were watching her throughout rather than the show.  It makes sense to me after experiencing fashion week.  There's alot of nobodies who want to be somebody and they all want the fast track to success.  We live in a world were we expect everything straight away and we've become used to it.  I buy grated cheese and why? Because I want I don't want to have to do it myself and I don't have to either.  This is just a small example but you can see my point and no doubt you have a few examples yourself.
I've made it a habit to watch at least one show in New York and it's really to give me a shot of adrenaline and it's kinda become addicting!  This season will be a little different and gone are the limited layouts that designers can choose at the Lincoln Center so there's going to be a lot less of the standard white on black runway you can see above.  This can hopefully be a good thing and no doubt are there going to be hiccups.  From an editing point of view I can only hope that the lighting is perfected.  AW always brings black clothes on black backdrops which can be a nightmare but I enjoy a challenge and I get to work with some of the best people and when a problem arises it can normally be overcome.
