I cannot speak for others who are involved in the fashion industry, for me ( the consumer ) it's about being passionate about your designer, going to the official store(s) and spending your cash on his clothes ( whether sale or retail ) to support his business in however small or big way, having a friendly relationship with the sales teams, letting them know ( in my case ) you are a loyal follower of his work, and finally asking politely and persistently if such opportunity will arise on short notice to attend his Runway Show ( i.e. taking time off work ). A long time ambition fulfilled at last An honour and a privilege.
I just about managed to seek out some clear enough shots from our vantage point to post here ( 25 feet diagonally from the end of the Runway ). The powerful spotlights shining our way made those garments look quite different from the head on shots seen online away from the glare, tremendous all the same. We shot the full 18:30 vid as well but yet to find a way to upload it....
Photographers/Press getting ready
Y's SA helping with seating, he looked damn good on the target piece of AW12 ( you recognize him a lot on SS11 PH Runway in the background )
Runway Looks ( spot the insolent Tim Blanks on front roll ) - such flowing fabrics. The jumpsuits were great in a out-of-context kind of way.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Edit:- forgot to mention the Jumpsuits are part of the new Regulation Line ( SA told us ), hence the out-of -context vibe with the Runway :)
