FASHION: LFW Diary Day 4

Dear dairy… Day four at London Fashion Week, or “Mega Monday” as the media have dubbed it, was a mixed bag of events. With the giant Burberry show catching everyone’s attention I couldn’t help feel a little sorry for the other, completely overshadowed, designers. I headed back to Somerset House for the David Korma show which was very much to my tastes. The designer’s signature … Continue reading FASHION: LFW Diary Day 4

FASHION: LFW Diary Day 3

Dear diary… On day three of LFW I headed over to the Fashion Scout venue to seek out some fresh talent. Sunday was all about Felicities designers. An Icy start with the Basharatyan Show inspired by Iceland. The models lips had tuned blue and sprouted small icicles! The hair and make up styling on this show was one of the most elaborate this season but … Continue reading FASHION: LFW Diary Day 3

FASHION: LFW Diary Day 2

Dear diary, on day two of LFW I visited the lovely ladies in the M.A.C press lounge at Somerset House. I was given a 30 minute transformation including a bronze eye and a gothic “rebel” lip. Next up was a quick visit to the Shopcade Party bus where I was treated to a cheeky mojito and some good tunes. Then on to John Rocha, one … Continue reading FASHION: LFW Diary Day 2

FASHION: LFW AW14/15 Diary Day One

Dear Diary…It’s that time again… Catwalk season! London Fashion Week got off to a wet and windy start yesterday leaving fashionistas drenched and windswept at Somerset House. I was there with a warm scarf and an umbrella, but there were other girls bare legged and jacket less proving their true dedication to style. This is my 5th LFW! (Getting old) and I was feeling a … Continue reading FASHION: LFW AW14/15 Diary Day One

There’s so much to see and do I can only pick a few stand highlights to share here and a few snaps from the group Catwalk shows. Full details of all the exhibitors can … Continue reading FASHION: PURE Thoughts

FASHION: London Fashion Week Highlights

There may be talk of granny heels and square somber toes, but I was loving the bright patterned shoes in many collections at London Fashion Week. My top picks are these Sophia Webster, Sister By Sibling, and Eugene Lin pairs. Perhaps not a particularly wearable trend, but my second highlight is this sunburn style pink makeup seen at several shows including Corrie Neilson and Ji … Continue reading FASHION: London Fashion Week Highlights

FASHION: London Fashion Week Diary Day Three

The Eugene Lin show took me to an all new London Fashion Week location on Sunday, The Future Gallery. The whitewashed interior suited the intimate show letting Lin’s predominantly printed collection shine. Top to toe printed suits were the show stoppers, but the custom printed shoes were also incredible, another perfectly accessorised show. Continue reading FASHION: London Fashion Week Diary Day Three

FASHION: London Fashion Week Diary Day Two

Saturday dawned brightly, a beautiful sunny start to a weekend of Fashion. The Daks show started just as brightly with white washed dresses followed by apricot and rust coloured jumpsuits and the occasional Burberry reminiscent check. My first celebrity spotting of the day was Absolutely Fabulous’ Joanna Lumley suitably styled with a ridiculous hat. There was time for copious amounts of coffee before the Ji … Continue reading FASHION: London Fashion Week Diary Day Two
