Walking in the sunshine. Hearing your name called. Landing your dream job. There are some moments when you can’t help but smile as the world in your peripheral vision blurs as if it were painted in watercolours. As the fashion weeks zip by, and the industry’s most influential tastemakers travel from capital to capital, I wonder if they experience these kinds of moments as well. Luckily, model Tali Lennox has her own moment to share.
In her second season at London Fashion Week, Tali – who calls Annie Lennox (“Whyyyyyy” sing it!) mom – has certainly become one to watch. The eighteen-year-old has already walked for Prada and Miu Miu, and stars in the latest Burberry campaign shot by Mario Testino. She recently gave Britain’s The Telegraph a summary of her hectic London fashion week schedule. By retelling her experience, Tali gives readers an insider’s view and reveals her own reflections along the way. I think it’s fun to know that even the models sometimes can’t help but get swept up in it all.
“I wore high-waisted pinstriped trousers and a grey shirt with an art deco print. I loved the music for the show, which started off with the 101 Dalmatians theme tune mixed into a thumping beat. I had one of those surreal moments where I looked around and the music was pumping and all the girls looked crazy and I thought, 'What the hell am I doing? Where am I?'” – Tali Lennox as told to The Telegraph
