FHFW, Days 1 & 2

What an amazing start to Forest Hill Fashion Week!  The streets of Forest Hill have been heaving with fashion conscious, or simply curious, locals.

You may have spotted the official FHFW t-shirts dotted around the high street and donned by the local traders. Even the SEE3 Core Team have got in the FHFW spirit.
