People love a get together. Organising a special one like H by Harris' 'One Year On' exhibition party in collaboration with Paul Smith was a pleasure. There was the expected back end correspondence, behind the scenes co-ordination, hic -ups and downs. However, once the green light started flashing that was the sign to get very excited and a lot busier. I have a little experience working in a team organising events and that's how I got to be working with Harris again 12 years later!
One Year On was a design exhibition in three stories. The art of Harris' styling as told in the photographic exhibition of 9 black + white prints beautifully, beautifully! shot by the talented fashion and beauty photographer Daniel O'Connell. His work ticked every box that it was supposed to and then some. A static exhibition of the infamous collection 'Manoeuvre' H by Harris A/W 2010 and 'Fixed' H by Harris's first fashion film directed by Manny Bonett. showcases the collection on slick, styled, stunt performing fixed gear cyclists. All things considered and the amazing turn out that came to support H By Harris and I didn't want to leave! It was a resounding success. I had Lumix with me, so in between the to do list and climbing ladders in red clog slipper heels, (why didn't anyone stop me.. follow me @Iamahealthhazard unto myself!) I took a few before, during and after pictures for the H by Harris first anniversary, exhibition album.
