It’s Fashion East’s 10th birthday in September and Lulu Kennedy is showing 3 new designers – Simone Rocha, Heikki Salonen and Felicity Brown. She discovered and supported Gareth Pugh, Marios Schwab, Richard Nicoll, Holly Fulton, Jonathan Sanders, Roksanda Ilincic and Louise Goldin. I shot Simone and Lulu (above) for Soma. Simone had a hard time getting the netting and the seams right on her fragile collection. Her influences are Maison Martin Margiela, Comme de Garcons and John Rocha.
Lulu & Co, launching in October, is a limited collection of the key pieces the designers have produced over the last 10 years. Get ready!
The judges at the PDN photo contest, the Look, have awarded my picture 1st place in the Personal work section in the September awards issue. The pictures, a collaboration with Charles Danby, are a combination of drawing and photography and were 1st exhibited at Selfridges in the Murmur show.
