Shot with a Flip Video
Having spent the majority of my week at The Freemasons' Hall either entranced in a show or presentation, or hunched over my laptop in the media centre I was starting to feel the cabin fever. With the team behind Vauxhall Fashion Scout in charge of production at the A Child of the Jago show I eagerly volunteered myself to cover it on the final day of fashion week.

Just moments before the final show of Vauxhall Fashion Scout kicked off, we bumped into our fabulous photographer friend NK outside the Orschel-Read show. “Made it down from your studio?” we chirped. And since he had front row tickets and we were in the back, he agreed to let us snap his Blackberry after the show. As we, sadly, did not see the shoe.
Muted prints included dusky pink roses reminiscent of Japanese watercolours, faded polka dots and intricate graphic landscapes juxtaposed with heavier earth tones of ethically sourced tweed. Chunky knits in shades of ember brown were worked into relaxed lounge trousers, and an aristocratic equestrian theme could be seen in the contrast panelled breeches and accents of burgundy saddle leather.

Beekay’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection was inspired by trees, looking at their round circumferences and the shapes made from the branches. “I wanted to challenge myself by using a very simple starting point and seeing what I could do with it, and how I could develop it.” Evidence of how the circular tree trunk has inspired the collection is clear in the structure of the garments, everything is round: the hoods, the panelling and zips. Usually inspired by a story, Beekay used the pressure he felt for a second collection and cycle of his thoughts as a point of inspiration.
