London Fashion Week - Backstage at Basso & Brooke
Usually when I'm backstage at a London Fashion Week show, the tension is palpable. There's makeup and hair artists, models and important looking people with clipboards running around everywhere shouting things. But at Basso & Brooke yesterday the atmosphere was completely different to anything I've experienced before.
Arriving an hour and a half before the show, I walked into the very un-glamorous backstage area of the Old Sorting Office, home to Basso & Brooke for the afternoon to find two very calm designers, a hub of hair and makeup activity and a couple of people with clipboards, but no shouting.
The models did their final walk-through forty-five minutes before the show was due to start, which as far as I'm concerned is virtually un-heard of.
In fact the atmosphere backstage was so exciting that I completely forgot to take up my seat for the show and ended up hanging out with the production team as the models walked the runway!
