Day 1: London Fashion Week

WELCOME TO MY MINI SERIES OF DAILY REPORTS ON FASHION WEEK, ANGELS!

London Fashion Week is one of, if not, the biggest fashion event in the world. I have been lucky enough to attend two seasons in a row. Last season, I attended as an intern, backstage, working essentially. It was an AMAZING experience but not a patch on being able to sit and enjoy the shows as a blogger this time round. It still feels surreal I ever got invited.

Photographing and blogging about the shows is not the only thing I took out of this insane experience; as a fashion student- I was inundated with a plethora of primary inspiration right before my eyes and am forever grateful for the opportunity to bask in such a wonderful atmosphere.

Throughout fashion week, I attended multiple shows, events and lounges. Here is a summary of my first day…

THURSDAY

On Thursday, I travelled down to London from my northern home town and arrived into Euston early evening. I took the tube and went to get ready for the most exciting event ever in the HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, yah, how posh does that sound…

My outfit of choice was my Black Velvet Wrap Dress from the one and only Pretty Little Thing- I still can’t believe I bagged this beauty in the sale. I paired it with my River Island Gold Heels and Gold Choker. I, of course, did my own makeup. Creating a warm smokey eye with my Morphe 350M palette. Trademark orange/red eye. What else could be expected?! PS. How amazing is this view?

The event was hosted by London Ethnic– a fashion house providing a platform for a wide range of upcoming and distinguished UK fashion designers to help from the initial stages from pattern cutting and sample making through to promoting their designs and ultimately having them showcased, produced and sold. Their collections reflect the diversity and vibrancy of London’s soul – from the classic tailoring of Saville Row to the edgy Shoreditch street-style. All whilst upholding a high ethical standard. The whole process is completed in the heart of London.

Here’s some of my favourite pieces from the show…

I had a (very well needed) glass of wine (or 3), enjoyed some amazing collections and met some very lovely people. Thank you so much to the London Ethnic team for inviting me to such a wonderful event.
