When I initially started photography all my training was studio and predominately fashion/model based, it was (at the time) the route that I had always thought I would travel down but circumstances changed that as they always do in life. It is also a little known fact that I had then worked for a reasonably high class fashion outfit with a focus on getting into merchandising so fashion has always been an interest to me but Interior photography came along and thats where the story ends.
This week i was invited to go along to the "Meadham Kirchoff Fashion in Motion" runway show at V&A museum in London. It is an entirely different way of shooting to what i do day by day (obviously) but always keen to test my skills that are out of my comfort zone I set up and took some photos.
"The Anglo-French duo Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff met at Central Saint Martins, where Meadham studied womenswear and Kirchhoff menswear. The pair formed the London based Meadham Kirchhoff label in 2002 and went on to win the ‘Emerging Talent – Ready-to-Wear’ award at the British Fashion Awards in 2010. Known for presenting beautiful, theatrical collections against intricately staged and often surreal settings, Meadham Kirchhoff has since garnered widespread critical acclaim" - V&A
While I don't think I will be doing this as a day job anytime soon it certainly was fun, honestly I am not 100% happy with the outcome, some are probably a little soft, but for a first go I cannot be too disappointed.
It is something I would love to have a go at again for sure.
