I was walking down South Molton Street with my friend Mimoza
the other week, as you do and I got a sense of deja vu.
I was wearing 40s florals and it made me think of the time
when I was photographed in that very spot outside Browns,
by the Guardian roving photographer
for Sarah Mower's Monday Style Page.
'English Rose in Forties Florals' 1987
'Quick Moza, take a picture' I said, I wanted to have a comparison shot.
So here you are, in the same spot just outside Browns
and actually pretty much the same time of year
as we were just returning from the
Sebago SS14 Preview on Regent Street 18 July 2013
26 years later - cool huh - nothing much changes! Xx
In 1987 I was working with Hamish Bowles and Camilla Nickerson
(now on US Vogue)
at Harpers on Broadwick Street W1 as Fashion Coordinator.
