In our new online column, ALINA POLIANSKAYA finds out who's wearing what in Camden Town this week:

Fatima Franssom, 22, has raided her parents’ wardrobes to put together her look today. She is wearing a big fluffy second-hand jumper with her dad’s shirts underneath, an Issey Miyake skirt and comfortable trainers, topped off with sunglasses from Beyond Retro and a bag by a Swedish designer.

Ashleigh Watt, 22, a cabaret dancer at a nightclub in Soho, often comes to Camden Town to buy intricate jewellery for her skimpy stage costume. Today she is wearing high-waisted skinny jeans from Topshop, boots from River Island, a stripy top from H &M and a tartan print coat is from the Rihanna range at Topshop – though she confesses that she ‘doesn’t really like’ the singer!

Alicia Hammond, 17, a student  from Harlow, has dressed up for a day out exploring Camden market with friends, who are all on their way to get some bang bang chicken. She has teamed up a jacket from Topshop, with a pastel pink shirt, leggings and sandals, all from New Look. Her friends describe her style as classy, girly, and sophisticated.

 

Bruno Rouqe, 19, towers above other passers-by in Camden in his 20cm high Demonia boots. He has come to town for some shopping today in striped black and white jeans, and “a very shiny black jacket”, accessorised with a fetching bow tie. Commenting on the immense platform shoes, Bruno said: “I like to look down on everything from above. I like to look big.”

Lizette Nordahl, 23, a singer and producer making “dark electronic stuff”, has developed a look to match her music. Lizette, who used to live in Camden before moving to Sweden, is wearing her mum’s old leather jacket from the 1990s, a simple black top and leggings, and an amazing pair of platform boots from Buffalo which she claims are “actually quite comfortable!”

Sebastian Tabares Vasquez, 19, loves to scour charity shops for stylish bargains, such as the Pull and Bear jacket and Next shirt he is wearing today. He even used to work in one in Kentish Town. The fashion student, who is off to university in September to specialise in menswear, said: ”I usually wear a lot of black, but as it’s so summery today, I thought some light colours and prints would look cute.” Sebastian has teamed his bargain buys with some Levis jeans and some vintage Ray Ban shades that belonged to his grandma in the 1940s.
