Out and about....behind the scenes - Elena Perminova

The first shot of Elena was taken just before the Jean Paul Gaultier show. The second while we were waiting for the show to start. The only rest our street style stars actually get is when the shows are on and of course when they are in their cars between the shows. But Elena and Miroslava from yesterday are brilliant, playful and give us lots of time to get our shots. In these shots she is wearing a Louis Vuitton hat, Tommy Hilfiger jumper and Balenciaga  (I want these) shoes.

Out and about....behind the scenes - Miroslava Duma

This is what it looks like when everyone is shooting and our subject is on the move. we are all on the street with the traffic. Then suddenly your subject finds herself in the middle of the road on her own - or maybe that is a trick of the lens ;-) In these shots Miroslava is wearing Louis Vuitton.

Out and view - Iris Van Herpen

It was a very sumptuious room that Iris showed her collection in. A theater in the round with the models spent a long time in the room as the theater unfolded. Before the show started and then when all the models were in their places a statue in the middle of the room came to life emitting currents of electricity like small bolts of lighting into the room.

Out and view - Jean Paul Gautlier

During my time in Paris I got to see a couple of the shows. It was a nice treat for me to see the theater unfold. Hope you enjoy my view point of the Gaultier show.

Out and about....NATaporter


Today when you read this I will be in Paris, I left on the 5.40am Eurostar, it is an early start but lovely journey. I will be covering the Couture shows for Vogue. I am even getting out of the cold and will see some of the shows this time. I love the opulence and fantasy of couture and am really looking forward to it.
I took this photo of the lovely Natalie at the London Collections: Men and am bound to see her again in Paris. She is wearing a Belstaff jacket and Louboutin shoes here.

Out and about....behind every great man is a ....

Kristina is the wife of the designer Cosmo Wise of De Rien. De Rien is a father and son collaboration. Their roots are in vintage fashion but for them unlike Oxfam for instance 'good condition' is a relative term. These are clothes that have been worn and worn. But is is a style that is catching on with the likes of Pete Docherty for example. "Since joining the business a few years ago, Cosmo has developed a line of new clothes that have been made from the vintage fabric/clothing they source and sell." While developing this new avenue to the business which they sell through Hostem they still sell their vintage clothing in Spitalfields on a Thursday and Portobello on a Friday.
Kristina is wearing a De Rien coat, vintage dress and shoes and H&M tights.

Out and about....on the street

It is great when you get a road with only one way occasional traffic, it is fun to put people right in the middle of the road it give the shot great perspective.
Helen was standing in the queue for one of the shows last week and gamely left the front of the line to come and let a few of us photograph her. She is a stylist, writer and a blogger. For me Helen's look is very British, with an obvious Vivienne Westwood edge. And indeed her bag and boots are creations by that great lady. Her coat is from a shop in Kingly Court called Mnini which she has worn with a belt from ASOS, and her rings are from The Great Frog.
Helen's surprises for us were that she used to ride horses, this was the start of her love of speed as she now loves Formula 1. She is also a Blur fan. Favourite place in London is Carnaby Street.
