Alistair Guy

Ever wondered what goes on behind the luxurious smoke screen of the fashion world? Where do all those stylish It-Girls work, play and shop? Well, roving fashion photographer Alistair Guy went behind the scenes to get up close and personal to some of the most exciting names on the London fashion scene today - bringing the reality to life in pictures.

Alistair's subjects included Ben Grimes chain smoking in her East London flat and designer of the moment Hannah Marshall in her monochrome studio. And let's not forget InStyle's very own fashion intern, Amelia Rynkowska whose model looks and edgy East London style make her stand out in any fashion crowd.

Alistair shot the girls in their working environments in order to portray the hard work and dedication behind their success - capturing the true, gritty essence of the glamourous industry. So, if you fancy having a little nosy into the everyday lives of London's hottest fashion exports then get on down to The Tapestry Gallery in Soho and check out the 'Behind The Seams’ exhibition for a full fashion low-down.
