WEARING RIGHT NOW


This season is quickly becoming one of my favourite London Fashion Weeks. I’ve been lucky enough to see some incredible shows and be around some lovely people, and day 3 hasn’t even started yet. Click below to see what I got up to!





Day 1 was crazy. I left the house at 7:30 with Lolli, ready to head down to the Company, Office and Ugg breakfast. Armed with Nero vanilla lattes we made our way down to the strand and up to the Radio Rooftop Bar in the Me Hotel. I’ve been there a few times now but nothing quite prepares you for the panoramic view, it looks right over Somerset House too – very apt. After fuelling up on croissants and coffees, we were treated to a talk on shoe trends from Company editor Victoria, Ugg ambassador Bip Ling and head of design at Office Melanie Cohen. Not a lot of better ways to kick of LFW in my opinion!

I’ll be writing about my favourite shows in full, but I’ll do a little round up each day. First show of the day was Bora Asku, who showcased the dreamiest pieces to the most entrancing melodies that had me totally captivated. Hopelessly romantic, the collection featured a variety of embroidery, crotchet and fluid silk textures across a pallet of whites and ballerina hues contrasted with soft cobalt and lilac blues. A delicate yet bold collection for SS15.

After Bora I hot footed it down to the Institute of Contemporary Arts to grab a quick glance at Parisian designer Faustine Stienmetz’s presentation. The garments were incredibly crafted with traditional artisanal techniques, every fabric hand-woven in  their East London Studio, taking inspiration from couture houses and how they present their products.

Next up was probably my favourite show of the day, Daks. I was very kindly given an unexpected front row seat, which gave me a beautiful view of the collection and it’s gorgeous setting in the Royal Opera House. Romantic ruffles of gauze and feathers were juxtaposed with Tasmanian wool and crisp cotton made for a feminine and sensual collection. Daks certainly know how to do elegance.

Jean Pierre Braganza followed at Somerset House.  I wasn’t as impressed with this as I was by the AW14 collection, but I found the exploration of architectural design interesting.  Playing on the ‘peaceful equilibrium’ between the natural and urban worlds, delicate lace, silks and velvets reference harder metallic materials.

Gyunel was my last show of the day, held in the stunning Bloomsbury room of Victoria House. Upon arrival I grabbed a severely-needed cocktail at the drinks reception and spotted Hannah then got to meet one of my favourite bloggers, Rosie from the Londoner.  After drinks we were shown to our seats on the front row, providing perfect viewing for the ‘Nomadic Scorpion’ collection. A story of a ‘nomadic traveller’ Gyunel showcased serpentine gowns with sculpted separates across a dry palette of titan orange and brittle greens. An athletic energy, creating a collection that is both relaxed and confident. An incredible end to my first day of shows.

But of course, they day isn’t truly over until you’ve had a bottle of prossecco or two with the best blogging babes for a Friday night full of laughter and story telling of the day’s events.
Day one you were good to me, very good indeed. Stay tuned for day 2 tomorrow!
