I’m styling two shows this season, PingHe and Fashion Scout’s The Ones to Watch. Yesterday we had the Fashion Scout model casting at the Freemason’s Hall in the same room that will be transformed into the main catwalk space. It’s a great opportunity for many designers to see so many models: several hundred models show up from different agencies throughout the afternoon. I love casting as I’ve gotten to know so many of the models over the years and it’s always great to see them again. It’s quite impressive when you meet a model who’s 19 years old and has already done 5 seasons worth of shows. There are also quite a few new girls, who are about 16 years old so this is their first show season. London can be the perfect testing ground for new models and of course for new designers – there’s just so much emerging talent in London.
This is the upstairs room where PingHe will be showing!
The casting was powered by Snog – frozen yougurt!
