There. All set? Volume up? Good. Let's go.























The Topshop Unique catwalk show on Sunday, 19 September, was.. what can I say. Unique. Celebrities, normal people who looked like celebrities, models with gilded hair, and the clothes. Did I mention the clothes? Tribal influence, my favourite colours like aqua with shiny gold.. like they were painted by Keith Haring, but he's not in this world any more. But on Sunday, it felt like he could have been. I might have even seen Michael Jackson, in the front row. It's possible. Anna Wintour was definitely there, and Kate Lamphear, and I can't even fit all my photos of them into this one post, so for now, you're just going to have to settle for my old friend Olivia, for now. And Keli. Two of the many shiny, happy people.



Thank you to Liz S, as always, for inviting me, and to Susie Q: hope you're feeling better.

And R.I.P., R.E.M. I once saw Michael Stipe in a small really cool clothing shop in Soho, NY, back when the area was like Spitalfields is now. He was with Patti Smith. I was the only other person there, and was mesmerised. I can't embed the actual video but click here, it's lovely.

Love your detail shots here. R.E.M. will be greatly missed - loved them from the start.

So many gorgeous photographs of gorgeous, smiley people and gilded Keith Haring clothes.

Re your note: London-California house swap sounds great, as long as the sun is shining in London! (It will always be shining here) ;-)

These are so like channeling Egyptian royalty, I love it! And the shoes...such pretty shoes!!

On another note, thank you for stopping by and yes I write all my own poems and shoot all my own pics, so thank you very much!! And you know, that's the problem with being annon - there's no way to find you in case of miscommunication! :( Hopefully she'll come back and all will be well again - I mean you did try! I love that you care about the people you photograph enough to make sure they are not mocked - you don't even know them, yet you care about them! That speaks so well of your character to me :)

As always, you capture fashion week in a way no one else does. I just adore that shot of the beautiful turqoise skirt with Anna, arms crossed, in the background. Just marvellous.

Thank you, darling Imogen. Just you wait: Anna's getting her own post shortly! We miss you here but hope you're having such fun in Paris.
