Capturing the Sartorialist in action…

I know I have been AWOL for a while, and I will thank LDNBloggers for that! It is always a joy and struggle when you start something new!

Like this blog,Trendbridged! just sent me my 2nd birthday card, and it made me squeal like a teenage girl (not very different from my usual squeal!) I remember when I started TB, I was always out and about capturing images, cribbing how big the camera was and that I will never carry it again, and the day when it wasnt with me, I was cribbing why the camera is not with me!

My regular readers must know ,that it was Scott Schuman’s website The Sartorialist is what inspired me to start, and I had the pleasure and privilege of meeting him last year at Fashion Week.

In the 5 minute conversation (First 2 went in me finding my voice to say Hello!!) he said things which made me want to do more with He shared tips to click better images, what he looks out for in a shot, what lens he uses, that Garance was joining him after her Lunch before they head into a show, and how to KEEP ON clicking pictures to get better pictures!

That was the day I wanted to do so much more with TB!

Well this LFW I saw Scott walk past us (I was chatting with Yvan Rodic and The Sophie Lear of  Face Hunter and The littlest things) and I could not resist clicking him in action, only curious to see what the final image would look like. So here it is guys!

And this is my picture of him clicking the above picture.

Work in Progress

Who inspires you to be better at what yo do? I would love to know!

I promise to post more..

Keep a look out,

Christian Wijnants Autumn Winter 2011

I have always been a fan of Antwerp designers. I haven’t been to Belgium as yet, but I hope to go soon and discover what that secret ingredient exists which makes these designers so off beat (I would usually go for avant garde here…but that goes without saying!)

The Royal Academy Of Fine Arts in Antwerp has produced quite a few notable designers and artists, and it was in these studios that the Antwerp Six, Vincent Van Gogh and Maison Martin Margiela found themselves.

I have always loved Christian’s work, his designs are clean, often minimalistic , and usually let them talk for themselves, but I must say his latest collection has the drama captured by the talented Michael Hemy, who has shot for Louis Vuitton , Dazed and Confused Japan etc.

The collection itself is inspired by by Gerhard Richter’s Over painted Photographs, which explains the over layering of the photographs

The subtle animal motives and prints layer themselves over graphical elements in clean and sharp key pieces, of course the big alpaca cape is something worth dying for.

Known for his knit dresses, there are quite a few chunky knits in subtle colours which could be a key piece in every woman’s wardrobe.

The colours are warm and subtle, and stay within the same colour family, as Christian puts it, he wants to capture serenity and beautiful colors compositions of Victor Pasmore in his collection.
