Dressing for fashion week is always a highlight of the season, but definitely something that’s easy to overthink. When you know you’re going to be surrounded by people whose very speciality is clothing, the pressure is on – you want to look good. But it’s also an opportunity to stand out and show off your individuality and personal style.
In recent months, with starting sixth-form and having the privilege of no uniform, I’ve been able to play around a lot more with my style. There’s a ‘business’ dress code at my school, but as someone who never wears jeans this isn’t a struggle, in fact, it’s a pleasure. Honestly, I have a lot of fun dressing up for school, and being able to play with different looks. My style has had room to become more sophisticated, so that’s what I channelled for this season’s fashion week. It is, after all, largely a business event.

I get major ’80s working woman vibes from this more editorial shoot – a happy accident involving some caution tape, my very creative dad and poor light. I also feel a little like Lauren Bacall, which is all I really want in life.
