All the backstage action.

London Fashion Week has touched down in the capital and with it, a trademark spirit of renegade. 

But behind all the headlines and the catwalk sheen lies a battalion of backstage puppeteers. 

From stylists to lighting technicians, models, publicists and directors, London Fashion Week is the product of a huge army of creative professionals, who work together in a system of organised chaos.

Like any production, behind the scenes at LFW is a fun, frantic and demanding world. It’s a place of jittery nerves, last-minute changes and endless running around. 

So, as SS19 gets underway, come dive into the fray by stepping beyond the Front Row with a candid look backstage:
