Favourite finds: Part One

Over the past two weeks I have been all over town - north, south east and west to see the latest offerings from well over 100 designers. It is always a pleasure to see the work up close,  the delicate features, touch the fabrics and catch up with all the PR's that have had the unthankful task of seating, preparing and running the shows. It has certainly got me hyped and inspired for shooting the upcoming season - even if the sun has started to shine and the fabrics are mainly for the depths of winter....oh well.

I shall be breaking down into various posts because if I posted every picture of clothes I loved you would be here FOR HOURS.

Textures: Skins and furs as well as metals and leather have all added to the excitement of AW.
