LONDON FASHION WEEK: DAY ONE


So, I figured the best way to tackle this would be to do a daily report with a round-up of the shows, the street-style, & the added extras.. & then the weeks following London Fashion Week, I'll put together some more detailed content on each of the shows!

So, first stop yesterday was a hair styling by Hershesons (more on that tomorrow!), followed by a run (ahhh, running in heels, classic fashion week!) to my first show of the day: Fyodor Golan. Gorgeous neons, billowing structures, & funky heels, as snapped above^

Next, Somerset House, where I caught the J JS Lee show: lots of pinks, blues, contrasting textures (loved the pvc) & graphic checks. After, I managed to take a few street style shots. Most often heard on the street this season: "that damn rain!" It's really put a bit of a dampener (apologies for the punnage) on things, street style especially, as no-one wants to hang about getting their photo taken if it's in the rain!


After a quick bite to eat & a recon sesh with Sophie, I headed to my first Fashion Scout show of the season: Ones to Watch. I particularly loved this baby pink sweater with messy graphic lines on the cuff by Hannah Williams. Next, was another Fashion Scout show, Yeashin, very folky, pastel colours, pleats & bows.


Got a few outfit shots of what I was wearing: a faux leather jacket from Zara, my faithful iPad case from Reiss (I used it to keep my show tickets dry), skirt by Zara ,shoes from Aldo, & rings by h&m.


My penultimate show of the day was Jean-Pierre Braganza. I interviewed this guy 4 years ago when I was working for London College of Fashion, & he was the sweetest, craziest, enthusiastic guy (I had to follow him with my voice recorder as he danced around on the cutting tables whilst he talked), so I was particularly excited to see this show. Lovely silhouettes & a muted palette with a pop of red on several of the looks. Rounded off the day with the launch in London of the Chinese designer Ping He, who worked under Alexander McQueen. You could really see the McQueen influences: sharp shapes cutting a feminine figure, lasercut leather detail, & slashes of snakeskin. Gorgeous stuff.


See you tomorrow!
