“FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS... AND REMEMBER IT TAKES TIME AND EFFORT TO TURN YOUR DREAMS INTO REALITY.”
From the minute Leah McQueen picked up a camera at the tender age of just twelve years old, she knew that she had found her calling. From photographing weddings and small-scale fashion shows in Australia, McQueen then returned to London where, in September 2010, she captured the runways of her very first major Fashion Week. It was this experience that has effectively set in motion her future ventures with international publications hastening to invite her to shoot additional Ready-To-Wear shows, and the holy grail of the fashion calendar, witnessed first-hand only by the industry’s elite – Couture Week.
