To celebrate the glorious festivities of London Fashion Week (the best week in my calendar), I’m rounding up the top seven people you’re most likely to encounter at the event, no matter which one you attend around the globe.
1. The Protester
With their pickets held higher than a fashion snobs nose, you’ll find these guys alone or amongst a flock of similarly outraged demonstrators. Whether they’re protesting about the use of fur for fashion (and rightly so), or body standards in the industry, they’re not one to be missed.
2. The Blogger
With the recent rise of internet fame and self-branding (looking at you KJ), Fashion Week has become a calendar event for bloggers to frequently haunt. Armed with their faux designer handbags and sunglasses on cloudy days, you’ll find them ‘casually’ lingering outside a venue waiting to be papped.
3. The Street Style Photographer
The street style photographers have become notorious for causing a ruckus outside of the hosting venues – mainly due to their traffic blocking photoshoots. Approach with caution.
4. The ‘IT’ Girl
You know who she is but she doesn’t know who you are. The Serena Van Der Woodsen of Fashion Week, she’s at the hottest events with a killer ‘I woke up like this’ vibe. Can someone hook a girl up with her stylist please?!
5. The Editor
Fashion Week wouldn’t be Fashion Week without a visit from HRH Anna Wintour. She’s fashion royalty who’ll be judging the festivities. Always immaculately dressed, the Editor will be chief in command on the FROW of every event.
6. The Off-Duty Model
Making an appearance to support their bezzie mate designer, this girl will have all the paparazzi chasing her. She can usually be spotted in the centre of a media frenzy or FROW next to the Editor’s.
7. The Intern
The girl that we can all relate too. Trying to juggle Starbucks coffees, schedules and her boss’s Prada at the same time, she’s the girl who’s job we all want to have (deep down). But until that happens, we’ll just cheer her on from the side lines.
