Madness has set in as the agency faces long hours during London Fashion Week, and the bookers become increasingly tired and sensitive.
Tensions are rising between the editorial bookers who have Fashion Week to contend with, and commercial booker John, who doesn’t work on the shows. Sleep-deprivation is clearly taking its toll as the staff resort to comparing their own head measurements to get through a long evening.
The gruelling schedule of castings, fittings and shows is affecting the models too. Top Australian model Julia Nobis arrives at the office for the London shows, already exhausted from New York Fashion Week.
Julia has had no sleep and it is the agency’s job to encourage her to rest and eat, as she works through an incredibly successful week, getting booked on more and more shows.
Meanwhile, things are kicking off amongst the agency staff, as commercial John walks out of the office in frustration. The atmosphere continues to heat up as the agency bosses, brother and sister Chris and Carole, get into discussions on how to deal with his absence.
John’s friend and fellow booker Sophie tries to smooth the situation between John and Carole but before long, exhausted from a week of long and stressful days, an explosive row erupts between Chris and Carole over how they should deal with John.
With the agency at the height of Show Season – frenzied with models, bookings and late nights – showdowns in the office are proving the ultimate test for Premier.
