HARPER AT #LFWM – JUNE 2018

HARPER AT LONDON FASHION WEEK MEN’S

This weekend was a very special one. It was London’s turn to celebrate the style of men.
Men don’t normally get the attention you would think when it comes to style. That is a statement that I feel has been quite noticeable over some years. Most certainly the fashion industry in general does cater for mens style a lot more, but it is nowhere on the level that it does upon womenswear.

So on the major Fashion Week circuit New York, London, Milan and Paris, it was London’s turn to cater to the needs and wishes of those men courting style itself.

To celebrate this, the BFC British Fashion Council gives men its very own Fashion Week.

London Fashion Week Men’s SS 2019.

My muse the amazing Harper Silin, was interested in seeing the menswear shows, so we set out to investigate.
Together we decided that I would style harper to attend the event. The images from this blog post, all shot and styled by myself, are of Harper in looks that I have created for her, that represent her personality, character and style, and would be suitable for #LFWM.
To me it made clear sense being the nature of the four day event, and the fact this was a very special occasion for the fashion loving #Harper, that she be dressed reflecting menswear. Harper is very much feminine, so to dress her in menswear has to be done with tact. The other factor with Harper is that blink and you’ll miss her. She is tiny with classic Chinese or Asian Millennial physique. so popping to the high street to pull a few items is out as most UK small sizes on Asian bodies swamp their tiny frames. Well we managed to do quite well. Harper thoroughly enjoyed herself, and from the reactions so far, the event and it’s global attendees of buyers, stylists, fashion industry types and of course fashion press and media, it’s many street style photographers and increasing video crews, appear to very much like Harper and her sense of style.

Many thanks to the folks at the #BFC, and all that attended #LFWM SS2019, for being so kind to her, and for your clear and positive reaction Harper and her style.

Please enjoy these images of what I truly believe is one day, a future star.
