Fashion Week is a huge scene for all fashion lovers and I made it my mission not to miss it this year. Whilst I caught up with on catwalks online, I wanted to be part of it, to be there and to be able to experience the magic. Thankfully, a friend and I scored tickets to the London Fashion Weekend, which follows the London Fashion Week, and it was one of the best days out I've had in a long time.
Held at the Saatchi gallery, #LFWend included exclusive shopping from over 150 brands, trends and designer catwalks, panel discussions, make-up and hair workshops and a whole lot of fun. Our day started with the designer catwalk, more specifically, House of Holland. Henry's collection focused on autumn and winter trends for this year, and whilst pieces were daring and a little too out there for my personal taste, I loved the display of colour, prints and different fabrics used in his pieces.
Following the catwalk (which was over way too soon, what is up with that?!), we made our way to the shopping floor to peruse some amazing collections; from coats, to ball gowns, from shoes, to awesome handbags, you name it, they had it all! The variety of ready-to-buy items directly from the catwalk was huge, too bad most of it was way out of my budget. One thing we could afford was make-up, and with a massive pop-up from Maybelline we simply couldn't stop ourselves!
For the day, I chose a simple, yet comfy outfit and I love how "schoolgirl" I looked! Pleats are slowly coming back into fashion and you can never go wrong with a pair of oxfords for comfort and style.
Not only was #LFWend a buzzing atmosphere and certainly the ultimate fashion experience, we walked away with lots of freebies in hand, including a tote bag designed by Mary Katrantzou, Maybelline samples, fashion magazines, delicious snacks and a polaroid picture courtesy of Sunglasses Hut. I am happy to have been able to attend this year and already looking forward to next year.
