The Walker Art Gallery's County Sessions House was the scene of a glamorous Vivienne Westwood fashion shoot for the Daily Post yesterday, as models, make-up artists and photographers took over the former courthouse for most of the day. Wearing pieces from Westwood's new Autumn/Winter collection, models posed in doorways and amongst the pillars outside the gallery.
Purple is the big colour of the Autumn/Winter season (yes, it's the new black don't you know?) and the stylists reflected this by choosing a tight fitting purple dress from the collection, along with a ruffled stripy dress and slouchy grey overcoat.
Westwood's trademark huge heels threatened to cause problems for one of the models, as she teetered around on the extra seven inches of patent leather, but she managed to carry it off in the end as no broken bones were reported. When the article goes on the Daily Post website, I'll give you an update on how it turned out!
