New York Fashion Week AW 2011...Xiao

Xiao Wen Ju - so, so cute all bundled up against in the cold in her anorak and fur hat. Xiao is from China but her English is excellent.....I was waiting to take her photograph while she was being interviewed (about her fav beauty products, music etc) and she was as sweet as she looks!

New York Fashion Week AW 2011...Mary Kate

Completely love the sparkly, denim, fur combination on Mary Kate Steinmiller (Teen Vogue's Fashion Market Editor).

London Fashion Week AW 2011...After Topshop Unique

I know it's a bit blurry but sometimes the emotion/moment is more important than how sharp the photo is.
Sometimes ;)

London Fashion Week AW 2011, Junior Street Style...Yizhen

The cutest little girl at LFW, Yizhen (I hope I spelt that correctly!)

Her Daddy said she picked out everything she was wearing....she also proudly showed me her little collection of business cards she had been given at Somerset House. Starting early, huh?!

New York Fashion Week AW 2011...Yasmin

The gorgeous, lovely Ms Yasmin Sewell.

New York Fashion Week AW 2011

In love with this colour combination and the softest beige-y, pink coat.
p.s. got back from NYC yesterday morning, completely exhausted, but totally in love with the city. It was my best time yet despite (or perhaps because of?) the freezing cold and the hideous combination of jet lag/insomnia that seems to afflict me. The light was incredible, the snow in central park just so beautiful, the food awesome and the people so friendly (well except for the shouty cracker woman in the supermarket late one evening!). I just wish I had longer to photograph- both at fashion week and my personal work on film. I suspect that even a month long break in New York would not be enough :)
My favourite things in NYC this trip: Tamu's black Christian Louboutin heels (they were soooooo high!I am still in disbelief that she was able to walk in them let alone use her camera!); Maya's Celine coat (so gorgeous, and very Maya); Candice's red Celine handbag (a surprise Christmas gift from her mama in Australia); Bond No.9 Saks Fifth Avenue perfume (two photographers were wearing it on the same day and it smelt so wonderful on both of them. Have decided it will be my next fragrance purchase); Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain (sooooo yummy and such a great retro space); Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side (insanely good chocolate peanut butter cookies- get them while they are still warm-ish); Schnipper's Quality Kitchen (burgers were awesome); Mario Batali's Eataly; Stumptown Roasters in the Ace hotel (I went to the pop-up shop in Amsterdam last year and thought it was great. The space in the Ace is even better); The view back to Manhattan from Brooklyn (I would never tire of it); and all the great girls who let me take their photo :)

New York Fashion Week AW 2011....On Valentine's Day

Adore this couple who I snapped on Valentine's Day on Monday after the Tracy Reese show. He was leaning over to kiss her just as I took the photo :)

p.s. Did you guys see her Marchesa wedding dress? So incredibly beautiful.

Paris Fashion Week SS 2011...Anne-Catherine

Miss Anne-Catherine. Who now has a blog- yay! I don't think twitter has entered into the equation yet but maybe soon :)) (I am loving my encouragement considering I am possibly the worst twitterer out there!).

Mosey on over to her blog here and give her some love- y'all know what it's like starting a new blog and no one comes to the party!

Paris Fashion Week SS 2011...Louise and Alix

Louise and Alix need no introduction. I adore both their dresses for different reasons. So pretty. So summery. So I wish summer was here now :)
