IT’S FASHION WEEK! First thing that happened, at my first show, ANNA WINTOUR casually slinks into an elevator with me. She’s totally alone, no minions. What? That happens? But hey I am totally keeping my cool. I just happen to freak out and drop my phone mid-Tweet everytime I spot the geometric-print leggings, black sequins and feather boleros coming at me on the way to shows. I assumed it would be 100% unglamorous blood sweat & tears to cover events and document the work of stylists backstage, but instead, there’s a relaxed party vibe. Here are some pictures of hair styled by the lovely Amy Farid for LnA’s Spring 2011 Collection show at MILK Studios Thursday night. There were a zillion famo people, and among my faves were Susie Bubble, my blogging idol, who has the most covetable English accent; and Dan Keyes, the always charming frontman of Young Love. More soon from NYFW – follow blackmarketboo on Twitter to experience my fashion hysteria as it happens…
