Model behaviour

Monday saw Vauxhall Fashion Scout's group model casting day - the only one of its kind in London. It's the only place where London Fashion Week designers (16 in total, including some not showing at Vauxhall Fashion Scout) can see a wide range of girls hailing from every continent of the globe, all in the same vast room. It's equally beneficial for the models too, they save time and money by dropping by to see all the designers in one central London location in less an hour. Why doesn't everyone do this?!

The fashion industry gets bad press for the pressure on girls to be too thin - but we saw with our own eyes models happily tucking into the food, refreshments and Vitamin Water provided for them. Eating disorder charity b-eat kindly manned the cloakroom (these girls really can carry an awful lot of *stuff* around with them!) and were on hand to give some friendly advice to those who asked.

So what were the designers looking for this season? Well, you'll have to wait and see the shows! What I can tell you is long hair is definitely back in. Oh how I wish I hadn't gone for an Agyness crop last season... Hannah Kane
