With the exhibition drawing to a close this week I thought I’d cast my mind back over my visit to the National Portrait Gallery this Spring to see the Vogue 100 exhibition. Many who are into fashion will probably have seen or heard about it already, but if you missed out then I will summarise my own experience for you.
I’ll be honest with you. I’ve never shopped online for clothes before, so this is a first for me. Call me old-fashioned but I actually enjoy the buzz of the high street, looking for a new outfit for a night out with the lads, and actually being able to try clothes on before I purchase them.
It’s always been especially nice to have a second opinion on new outfits too, like that of a partner or friend, so shopping online for clothes always seemed like a lonely pursuit to me.
Nevertheless, I’m sat here in front of my computer wondering what all the fuss is about and I’m going to search to see what I would buy should I ever decide to make the shift from high street to e-commerce.
Spring is here! And if you live anywhere near the UK, you know it means exactly that – still not quite Summer just yet. We still have cold and rainy days with the odd spot of sunshine, but not quite chilly enough to go full Eskimo with the wardrobe.
Enter the Trench Coat. Perfect for those windy walks through the city when it’s just too cool to not wear a jacket. This particular one is from the Ralph Lauren Purple Label collection and is available in-store at Selfridges, Bond Street.
It would make a very practical addition to a refined gentleman’s style ensemble.
Also available in black at www.ralphlauren.com ( only available to order online in the US)
I first met International model and TV presenter Neetasha Singh at the Excel Centre for India Fashion Week London whilst photographing the runway. Since then I’ve had the chance to capture her on the catwalk at several Asian Wedding Shows.
How much of an honour it was to be afforded the golden opportunity to personally shoot with her, and what a sight it was to see her fall in love with this bomber jacket by Gucci.
