Not long ago I had the chance to attend LCM, that showcased the upcoming trends for male clothing by the very best of British fashion designers. For the first time in my life I actually watched real catwalk shows – I mean for really real, even though sometimes I had to crack my neck to see anything in the crowd. Bottom line, I was there – thanks to Festy, my dear blogger friend, and had a great time.
This is one of my outfits while attending LCM. This pic was taken at the Hentsch man show.
This was the ultimate highlight of the whole LCM for me – meeting David Gandy. An Indian guy was talking to me, trying to get my attention, when he asked me if I knew Gandy. I was like ‘Of course, I know, the Indian leader – what a weird try to chat at a fashion show.’ Then I turned around and left him. And there he was: David GANDY! I had been looking at him for a while when it hit me, the Indian guy meant him and not the leader. Anyway, I was like Monica in Friends when Joey is having his VIP roof party. I decided to approach him and ask for a picture together (thank god Festy was there, otherwise I would have made a total idiot from myself). David was more than a gentleman, he saw how nervous I was, so he pulled off a little small talk to save the day. Despite being totally out of our league he behaved like he was one of us. Great experience!
Another celebrity hunt of mine – the Sartorialist. He is the GOD of streetstyle photography, he is actually the reason for such a thing exists at all. Festy spotted him on our way for a catwalk show and being still stout-hearted after the ‘Gandy hit’, we didn’t hesitate to talk to him. He is unexpectedly short but a nice man.
I had a great time, cannot wait for the next Fashion Week in September! 🙂
