05 Mar Fashion News: MBFWJHB starts 5 March 2015
Today is the first day of MBFWJHB and as I type this, I am literally marveling at how every time its fashion week, Mercedes Benz or SAFW, I have about a hundred things going on all at the same time. It always feels like I am on Survivor. Full days filled with meetings and shoots followed by evenings of back to back shows by some of the best designers in South Africa and Africa.
To stay sane, my ROWDY bag will be filled with:
- 1.4 50mm Canon Lens because its my favourite lens to shoot with.
- Chargers of all types. I have a battery pack and Fashion Week is the only time I travel with 2 phones. From Snapchat, to Instagram, to Twitter and taking down notes to put together a review, my iPhones are basically my everything during Fashion Week
- Esteé Lauder’s Matte Perfecting Primer – which I just started using the other day and almost rivals my favourite primer from Smashbox
- Red Bull Sugar Free
- Sunglasses because there is nothing worse than being caught on camera squinting because of the bright lights
