One of my yearly highlights is London Fashion Weekend, this is the event, held at Somerset House, that is open to the public after London Fashion Week, each February and September.
Yesterday I went along with Carol to go see the delights of the Trend and Designer catwalk shows – and they did not let us down!
After breakfast at Paul’s, a really nice cafe just up the road from Somerset House, we headed in for 10am.
Once we collected our goody bags, this year designed by Pringle of Scotland who are celebrating 200 years, we had a good look around the designer market stalls. Here you can shop at show discount prices, for lots of different accessories & clothes. The day also included a glass of bubbly and front row seats to the shows which are worth the extra price!
Angela Scanlon hosted the shows, and she talked through the four key trends; Hyper Florals, Shimmer & Shine, Make It Monochrome and That Seventies Show – all of which I’ll be exploring more over the coming weeks on the blog, but for now here are some of my favourites!
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE DESIGNER SHOW
The Designer show on Saturday was Halston Heritage – a luxury American fashion brand founded in the 1960’s by Roy Halston Frowick. I’ll write another blog that goes into more detail about this designer, but for now here are the highlights from the show, starting with my very favourite one – isn’t this a dream dress!
The best dress at the show was given to this guy – front row at the Trend show – we all loved his pink suit, and Angela made him get up and give us a twirl!
And finally, if you can… the front row is the only way to go!
Later this week I’ll be heading to Oxford Fashion Week for the Cosmopolitan show – if you want to find out more about this or book your own tickets – click here.
