Lets talk about London Fashion Week. Finally.
Before I share what I got up to on Day 1 of London Fashion Week, I’d quickly like to thank my lovely friend who came with me to keep me company. So happy to have shared some of those special crazy moments with her and eat sushi at night afterwards. Read this post to find out how we handled some of those crazy moments…
I’d also like to thank my favourite people at label.m and TONI & GUY for fixing me up with backstage access to some exciting shows and allow me to experience the real buzz from behind the scenes. The hair team were amazing backstage as well as in their pop-up salon at Brewer Street Car Park where most of the shows and presentations were held. Loved getting my hair done at the pop-up and loved the energy of the team – really cheered us up after we missed one show and were caught in the rain.
I missed a lot of shows and presentations on the 1st day actually. Boo.
Teatum Jones who opened the LFW at 11am on Friday were one of them. Pam Hogg on Friday evening was another one. Double boo. Without getting too deep into it, most of the shows I missed were either in a completely different end of the City Centre from where I was or the insane amount of roadworks with general London traffic slowed me down. No excuses really, but that’s how it went and as sad as it was, new hairstyles always did the trick at cheering me up.
Lets talk about clothes. I literally just wore one pair of ankle boots for the entire fashion week. THIS pair (£36). Wish I didn’t bring any other shoes with me now to save space and shoulder ache. I decided to wear my new sequin LOST INK floral jumper on the first day with mom jeans as I knew I’d be doing a lot of running about. It was rainier than Glasgow (say what?) on Day 1, so I just wore my biker jacket over my shoulders to protect me from the rain the entire time. Practical and trendy huh? The florals are HUGE just now in all shapes, sizes and forms, so I was glad to have brought my little sparkly jumper with me.
The backstage and runway shots are from “Ones to Watch” and I’ll be sharing more in my next post for you. Some of the outfit pictures re-taken in Glasgow.
