Fashion Week is meant to be a dazzling display of creativity and ingenuity and showcase the best and the brightest that we have on the planet.

To turn this rather grotty looking cavern into a space worthy of hosting London’s fashion elite was a monumental task, but something Sara saw as a challenge. ‘My first thoughts were, ‘Oh my god- what a natural catwalk!’ she said, and the space is now firmly established as the venue to be at LFW, hosting the Fashion East show.

I went backstage with Sara to see how things worked behind the scenes, and with a show scheduled to start at 1pm, we had an early start of 7am. Her crew were already hard at work, prepping the stage area, planning security and going over the music, and it was intriguing to get a sense of how something like the show is created, as there’s far more than just aesthetics involved.
