“Once in a while, a special kind of fashion week comes along. It’s when there’s something in the air; a unique sense of unpredictability. You wake up every morning with zero idea of what the day has in store. The autumn/winter 2018 shows in London were one of those fashion weeks.” At the link in bio, @anderschristianmadsen delivers the British Vogue verdict on #LFW

"It's simple and easy but the importance is exaggerating the texture because under the catwalk lights the hair can look too perfect and we want it to look lived in," contributing beauty editor @sammcknight1 told us of creating the look using his @hairbysammcknight products at the @burberry show this evening #lfw
“I’ve always wanted to make sure that whenever I felt it was the right time to leave, I didn’t try to cling on to something. It just felt right. It felt right for lots of different reasons, personally. Professionally I feel I’m still really curious.

#LFW day two kicks off with @jw_anderson. Aaron de Mey for @narsissist told @laurenmurdochsmith backstage that the inspiration behind the beauty look was "baby Brooke Shields - handsome, squared-off brows but not obvious, drawn on brows. With a touch of dew on eyelids. Not overly cosmetic, there are no hard edges".
"(It's) time to eradicate a state of mind that has been our normal for far too long. Come on, it's 2018. Time's up, people."
