Yesterday afternoon an e-mail landed in the oki-ni inbox from none other than the pride of Liverpool, Christopher Shannon. Its contents was a collection of superb portraits, shot by Andrew Vowles moments before the models took to the London Fashion Week runway wearing Christopher’s autumn/winter collection.
"I'd seen a few bits of Andrews work and really liked what he was doing”, said Christopher. “I was also curious as he was from Merseyside."
“The show is the only time you have all the models ready and dressed, and I wanted a document of them getting ready backstage at different points. We set up backstage and Andrew just chatted with the boys and took a succession of portraits.”
“We are working on a similar project for SS 13”, Christopher continues. “It’s nice to capture that mood before the show where they are all a bit nervous but trying their best to hide it."
