Intern's eye view: Backstage in the Presentation Hall


This season Fashion Scout introduced a new way of presenting up and coming collections - and the designers weren’t short of innovative ideas. From the hall of mirrors at Louise Amstrup to the short film and catwalk from Theatre de la Mode, the interns were buzzing with excitement about being part of such a creative process.

“I’ve really enjoyed my first season working for Vauxhall Fashion Scout, the concept is original and a brilliant way for us interns to liaise with the designers, stylists and PR of each company that have presented in the hall.”

- Kate, an Intern 

Not only have us interns been able to take a glimpse into the work and creativity put into each show, we’ve been able to compliment the designers first hand on such fantastic garments. We were particularly impressed by Harriet’s Muse and the Kingston MA girls – although at times it has been pretty hectic (not to mention sweaty) backstage.

From dressing models to helping set up stages, catwalks and bars, us girls have had a lot of fun, and it paid off; each presentation was a fashion frenzy of people – British Fashion Council members, magazine editors, buyers and designers.

The week flew by and we all look forward to returning next year as the Presentation Hall was host to the most fashion forward events – watch out, it’s the new catwalk.
