Backstage at Issa, the lux London label designed by Daniella Issa Heleya, was spectacularly surrieal. One side of the room was Naomi Campbell getting make up done by the legendary artist Pat McGrath, on another was it model Jourdan Dunn getting her hair fixed by the famous Guido and on the other side was Edward Enninful, the noted Vogue stylist getting pieces ready for the show.
I was walking around taking it all in when I bumped into Chanel Iman and her mother.Chanel is one of my favorite models and I've interviewed her in the past, so I simply had to catch up with her again and see how Fashion Week was going. Check out our interview below.
Zandile So how are you feeling right now?
Chanel I'm good. I'm not too tired. Not exhausted really. I'm Ready to go to Milan even though I had a great time in London
Zandile Have you walked any other shows in London. Yeah. I did a couple. I did Julian McDonald, Giles Deacon. I did a lot of cool shows here.
Chanel Not really. Threes so many different designers. I do like fun shows though like Dulce & Gabanna and D-Squared. Stuff I can work with.
Zandile What do you mean by work with?
Chanel Be myself. Get on the runway and have a little sass.
Zandile Besides the fun stuff. Is there a stressful side during fashion week.
