PREPARING FOR FASHION WEEK WITH MY PEN


Come end January, and it is time! The fashion weeks have begun, and models, photographers, editors and bloggers (heyaa!) are coming together from all over to see what the movers and shakers of those hot spots on the world are coming up with. As you are reading this, I am well on my way to Stockholm, which is the next city on the map to host the fashion party, and I'm beyond excited!

Now, a fair bit of preparation goes in to attending fashion weeks, and the process beforehand is the still before the storm. The cherished moments of quietly planning with the odd chaotic clothes crisis - oh the fun. Last mentioned made me purchase a short vintage 60s dress yesterday, to wear with knee high boots, but more on that another time. My camera is of course my most essential companion and accessory at fashion week, so the fact, that my leather case just so happen to match my other fashion week companion, my Chanel no. 5 for those special occasions, well, hello for a match!

In my preparation, I have kept my beauty routine to a minimum, leaving skin bare and let whichever red spots that came go untouched, unconcealed and instead focused my energy on my photography. For the fashion weeks, my PEN will be joined by my 12mm f2.0 lens for some scenic shots and my 75mm f1:1.8 for capturing portraits, and in-between-shows-coffees. I'm really enjoying how light I've become at the fashion weeks, and it's not because I've finally quit my daily in-take of whipped cream (one needs supplements for the soul), but because I'm not carrying heavy equipment around. Handy much? I think so! I started putting bricks in my bag, just to slowly get used to the difference.. With good preparation pre fashion week, planning outfits before being thousands of miles away from your closet, fashion week runs rather smoothly, and I can't wait to show you, what I'll be up to these times!

  14. Amazing flat lay styling! I can agree that a bottle of Chanel can always take some of those item photographs and kick it up a notch in adding a bit of luxe! xx
