On Tuesday I got a sneak peek into Jonathan Anderson's Shorditch workroom, where he was putting the final touches on his Spring 2011 collection, which he showed at the BFC tents on Wednesday. I've put together a little photo essay of what I saw, plus the final results.
Jonathan working on a pair of boots.
Loads of Swarovski crystals. They sponsored the show.
Apparent, Coke corrodes the finish on things, so they were using this to break down the gloss of some belt buckles. An assistant then used sandpaper to make it look worn.
This lovely knitter said she checks Fashionista each morning!
Jonathan used Liberty prints, but then bleached them out for a worn-in feel.
Lots of ironing goes on the day before a big show.
Belts and chokers worn in the show.
A model waiting to be fitted. He was very patient.
The model board.
The wicked men's and women's Swarovski-studded boots Jonathan designed for the show.
The next few images display the final result. Like many designers this season, Jonathan chose to sell some of his products online immediately following the show. British men's store oki-ni is the place to find them.
