My Fleeting London Fashion Week

Posted in Fashion, Writing.

As day three comes to a close, your reader is probably packed with London Fashion Week posts. So here’s another! Sorry.

I spent a couple of days in the city watching some shows (thanks vitaminwater!), hanging out at Somerset House and generally pretending to be fashionable. Take a look…

What I Wore

Day one: Warehouse maxi skirt, H&M cardigan, boots c/o Sarenza, belt c/o Next, Cambridge satchel
Day two: Topshop top and jeans, Michael Kors leather jacket, Vivienne Westwood shoes c/o Sarenza, ASOS necklace, Cambridge satchel.

I was street style snapped a few times, but my satchel and shoes got far more attention than anything else!

Who I Saw

Ashish SS12

I absolutely adored Ashish’s bright, bold, beautiful looks. The sequinned sunflowers, the mixed prints, the relaxed shapes – the show was a feast for the eyes (and ears – even Grace Woodward was singing along to the awesome soundtrack). Ashish is known for statement design but I can see these pieces filtering down to the high street and being mixed with denim for the everyday.

Jean-Pierre Braganza

In stark contrast to Ashish, Jean-Pierre Braganza showcased sharp tailoring in classic white, black, grey and a pop of pink. I loved the structured jackets and spike heels – a look so easy to replicate with pieces from my own wardrobe. The cute fishtail plaits had me yearning for long hair, too.

What I Did

Somerset House

Somerset House is an inspiring location for style – the building is stunning and although they make walking in heels almost impossible, I love the cobbles. Anyone can walk around the grounds during Fashion Week, and many hours can be whiled away just watching the comings and goings of London’s most fashionable.

Bloggers now have their own registration area

The very best bit about Fashion Week is meeting up with so many gorgeous bloggers. The British Fashion Council, who run LFW, changed their approach to bloggers for this season and in some ways, it  meant we were a little left out. Of course, that didn’t stop us getting together to chat, laugh, eat and enjoy ourselves.


The designer exhibition

BFC NEWGEN exhibition 

Exploring the exhibitions is a great way to discover new designers and see the trends for the coming season up close. This season, the jewellery displays seriously impressed me – if I was looking to blow a chunk of cash I don’t have on something bling, it’d be by Mawi or Holly Fulton. The stairwell installation looked amazing, too.

My Fashion Week was fleeting – I spent most of Saturday at Westfield Stratford City for The Look Show, which I’ll tell you about tomorrow – but I thoroughly enjoyed it all the same. Bring on next season!

I don’t think you can pretend any more, I think you are just fashion!
haha, gorgeous outfits. I must say I do love the bag rather a lot.


This post shows just how far you’ve come, I’ve always been a huge fan of your eclectic style, you’ve always got something unique going on and that is fundamentally what I admire the most about you.

The satchel and Westwood shoes are definitely show stoppers, wow, just WOW you look fabulous in both outfits xxx


LOVE that skirt, gorgeous colour.
And you know my feelings about the VW shoes. 🙂
Heard that a lot with the bloggers side of things. Shame, nothing wrong with being selective, but no need for the straight no I heard a lot of people getting.
