FCML catches up with Richard Evans the owner of Rich London PR about his career into Fashion.
When did you first realize that you wanted to go into fashion?
Fashion was only thing that I really knew about or held my attention growing up. Always keeping ahead with current fashion trainers, rarest jacket, and smartest shirt which would always get attention from girls. I remember once at school getting the girl I wanted purely because she liked my shirt, so it made sense for me to keep on top of it. I pretty much failed all my exams so I had to play to my strengths and find a job where I could talk about fashion like I did to my mates. I used to read lots of fashion magazines and I realized that’s all they do for a living so thought id try and get into that.
Highlight of your career so far?
Fashion Director of FHM
Best and worst part of the fashion industry?
Best part is not having to wear a uniform to work…Worst part is all the fake people, you cant trust anyone.
What is the best piece of advice you have to share?
Go travelling on your own
How has fashion changed your life?
Not really it just pays the bills i’d be rubbish at anything else.

The Melissa Diamantidi Spring/Summer13 collection took place in the main catwalk of Freemasons hall at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout venue in Covent Garden’s.
The line started off with models look innocent and pure white dresses with a hint of sexiness with the used of cut out sections in the dresses. Cut of section was an ongoing theme as the collection went on and the main fabric trends were again chiffons and silks. The contemporary use of pattern cutting to add a complex approach to simple pieces, that is what made the collection so outstanding. As the show went on, colours of emerald green and sleek black were incorporated into the designs.
The models walked up then stopped midway on the way down from the catwalk and then turn and stopped at one side of the audience. This created a tense atmosphere and the crowd were able to admire the designs close up. The show ended with a final stand of the models lined up on the catwalk and the applause continued as the lights dimmed down. A high standard has definitely been set for Melissa Diamantidi future shows.
