Every season LCF students are involved in behind the scenes work at London Fashion Week. From assisting with dressing models, to front of house and backstage photography – our students have it covered, and gain invaluable insight into the way that fashion season runs. Today we’re throwing it back to London Fashion Week aw16 with a quickfire round of questions for Thurstan Redding from MA Fashion Photography, who worked at London and Paris this season.

Thurstan, where you up to at LFW and PFW?

I’m a photography correspondent for various fashion publications. I am sent backstage to document the last moments before the beginning of the fashion shows.

How did the work come about?

I studied MA Fashion Photography at LCF and the work came about as a result of me getting in touch with various publications myself. As time went by I slowly started working on bigger shows with bigger magazines and here we are now.

What’s it like working at Fashion Week – what do you enjoy most about it?

Fashion week is an incredibly stressful but also extremely rewarding and enjoyable experience – it allows you to further your knowledge about the industry and to understand the creative process behind the main fashion brands. It also allows you to meet some really interesting people and to sharpen your photography as conditions are often challenging.

What are your future plans?

I’m working on fashion weeks when it’s fashion season, and editorials and personal projects the rest of the time – I’m working on my first campaign this month!
