Backstage at Ziad Ghanem’s LFW A/W 2011 Fashion Show

February 2011: Finding myself backstage in London Fashion Week is a photographer’s dream, especially when it’s smack bang in the middle of such an inspiring collection, full of colour and diversity. At one point the busy room came to a quiet standstill (even the photographers stopped snapping) when a model rose into the air to stand 9ft tall in an amazing gown!!!

This is just a small sample of the photos I took backstage that evening.
