HAVE I MET YOU BEFORE?

LONDON STREET STYLE FROM FASHION WEEK 2001-2018

Published 23.11.2022

Over 200 images of 111 fashion icons taken outside London Fashion Week shows between 2001-2018

“HAVE I MET YOU BEFORE? LONDON STREET STYLE FROM FASHION WEEK 2001-2018” is the first book in the archival photo book series KUMI SAITO PHOTOGRAPHY.

This book consists of over 200 images of fashion icons including editors, buyers, models, bloggers and influencers taken by Kumi Saito between 2001 and 2018, together with comments from the journalists whom she teamed up with at that time.

This book is a historical record for all fashion lovers, especially those interested in the street style scene in London. Not only does it feature an array of trends, but it also celebrates individual style and documents the overall festive mood at London Fashion Week during that period.

Kumi Saito is a London-based Japanese photographer who passed away in December 2020 from cancer. Her work focuses on fashion, lifestyle, portraiture and more. She was a well-known photographer who contributed to many Japanese magazines, fashion brands, department stores, and a wide range of media.

"Have I met you before?" is an expression that was frequently exchanged between Kumi and the chic show-goers at London Fashion Week. When capturing the styles of fashion insiders moving quickly from venue to venue, she was often recognised and asked "Have I met you before?" Or, if Kumi has photographed them before but couldn't remember who they were, she would ask "Have I met you before?" to which they would reply "Ah yes, I remember you!" and the two would start chatting.

Kumi dreamt of holding a photo exhibition with this title during her lifetime.
