London Fashion Week: Basso&Brooke

A surprise email arrives the night before the show from Basso&Brooke asking me to work as a dresser: shock and panic take over wondering how I'm going to organize my work around this amongst a long list of other things.

Location: Goldsmith's Hall, an absolutely beautiful building full of old paintings and chandeliers.

I arrived at the venue a nervous hour before anyone was due and waited for the make up artists, the hair team, the models, the garments, the stylists and of course the incredible due Basso&Brooke themselves.
The garments were extraordinary as always with Bruno's unique digital print background and Chris' innovative silhouettes.

 What a beautiful building.

 Getting sorted.

 My gorgeous model Christina.

The collection was inspired by retro prints which were then modernized with inspiration from birds, dichotomy and walls. It's all about taking something new and refreshing it through digital print, new cuts; being inspired by fashion history and what has already been done.
