Layer upon Layer !!!

London, this winter, has plumbed new depths in terms of temperatures - not ideal for a dancers body. I’m writing this blog in the hope that we’ve seen the end! 

One way that we protect our muscles and keep warm is to layer up. What I’ve noticed while photographing dancers is how eccentric we can be when trying to keep warm - anything goes! Dressing gowns, jackets fit for an arctic walk and home-knitted warmers. I even started to wear my outdoor coat in the studio while warming up.

Cold weather certainly brings out the best of us when it comes to winter-fashion. 

However, there’s always one who braves the cold ! Respect.
