I spent this LFW interning with the PR company Black Frame, mainly assisting with the preparation for the Meadham Kirchhoff SS13 show. This involved preparing the very exquisite show invitations (each envelope was stamped with a wax MK logo, and once opened the invitation popped up into a 3D net with a burning lady inside!).
At the show day, I assisted backstage at the Topshop showspace to ensure a smooth running, and to basically run around like a crazy woman making sure people that were in the right places.
If anyone has ever previously read my blog before, you will know how much I LOVE Meadham Kirchhoff! So having the chance to watch Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff preparing backstage, and seeing all of the beautifully eccentric garments before they went on the runway was a true dream of mine.
As always, the show was as extravagant as ever, however this time the MK boys opted for the beautifully English, Marie Antoinette style of dress, with cakes, flowers, painted walls and melted candles to accompany. A Meadham Kirchhoff show is never a straight forward catwalk show, remember the glitter throwing at AW12, or the crazed Courtney Love dancing at SS12?
My backstage shots aren't the best for details and lighting, so here are four of my favourite runway looks from the show, all unique in their own way, yet still creating an overall feel of nostalgic fun. My personal favourite look is the black, white and gold number, no words can describe how beautifully precise each intricate bead was sewn in. Amazing.
