Nuha works for fashion house ‘Buddhist Punk’. She was on her break when I photographed her in Hoxton. The punk theme is recurring, as she also plays keyboards in a post punk band called The Dead Pixels. Nuha is wearing a fur coat – with ripped lining as a bondage reference – layered teeshirts and red knickerbocker shorts over black tights.
Koko is relaunching a magazine called ‘Notes From The Underground’. She was wearing a rabbit fur aviator hat, red Brora cashmere hoody, leather jacket with sheepskin sleeves (a present from India) and blue velvet shirt when I met her in East London. I liked her assertive style, the layers and way the sweater cascades around her neck – echoing the horns of her chunky goat’s-head necklace.
Thomas is in a band imaginatively named Scum! He says the music is dark and experimental. He is wearing “70′s dancer shoes”, a Spanish hat with pinstripe trousers and 1950′s trench coat. I thought he had a clean, graceful look, which contrasted well with the grungy background of this East London street on a gloomy afternoon.
