Florence Welch: 'I'm so shy and tend to get nervous'
The 'Shake It Out' hitmaker told Vogue magazine that she adores the rush of watching a runway show, but she struggles with shyness so events like that can be very stressful.
She explained: "I love fashion shows because they're so fast and the theatre of it and the drama is really intoxicating - perfect for me with my short attention span... but I'm so shy and nervous I actually don't go to them very often because of the clamour."
As previously reported, she also told Vogue that taking time out of the spotlight helped heal her: "I had a little bit of a break from touring and going to events, and now that I have come back I have a much stronger sense of my personal style. When I first started this record, it was really important to have a break from (second album) Ceremonials, which was all stripped back in strict suits."
"Almost as I healed - because I was still quite heartbroken when I toured with this record and the themes of it were still very present in my life - my maximalist came back! To meet Alessandro at this time, where I feel like things have come full circle, is really nice. I feel like I've returned to the world of fashion with a much clearer sense of identity."
