LFW . . . Oh The Things I Heard AW16


Many of you asked if there would be another overheard at fashion week post, you all enjoyed the first and second ones so much

So here it is, the things that made me wince, giggle or look in disbelief at the speakers . .

The Diva’s & The Ungrateful


Marshall – You need to move

Diva – You can’t tell me where to stand

Marshall – Nah, but that truck might

___ ______ ___

I only do Front Row, (said by someone on the second row)

___ _____ ___

Girl – We’re friends of the designer

PR Lady – Which one ?

Girl – (gives name, removed to protect PR lady)

PR Lady – Well that finished an hour ago, so if you want to see him, call him and find out where he’s gone as he ain’t here

___ ______ ___

I’m going to break you if you don’t let me in first (they didn’t get in)


The Funny & Crazy

Person one – Second Season, still looks like a car park.

Person two – Still smells like one, I think someones pissed here recently

___ _____ ___

So much wool this season, I hate it, NCP should stand for No Crap Pullovers

The Funny Ones

Black Cab Driver trying to get through – I hate Fashion Week more than I hate Boris & Uber

___ _____ ___

Model to her colleague – I drew the line at walking down a river of blood for the show, seemed a bit much, I could have slipped and drowned (I have no idea what show that was, or where it was, could have been in the past, but tres theatrical)

Since starting writing on my 31st birthday in 2011 I have held a number of positions at magazines and websites as well as regularly producing articles for numerous publications alongside contributing to TV & radio shows as a freelance fashion journalist including Hoxton Radio & Fashion One TV. Alongside writing, I have worked in other industries helping to design & grow digital platforms, develop businesses and support operations practices. This experience has proved invaluable in building an understanding of how businesses work, and the landscape in which retail, B2B commerce and other commercial operations develop. Knowledge of commercial interests has helped shape my fashion industry insights beyond critiquing of garments
