So it's that time of year again, London Fashion Week, Unfortunately I wasn't quite invited to the frows of shows like Julian MacDonald and Sophia Webster (maybe next February), but at least I got to see a piece of the action at London Fashion Weekend. It was held at the beautiful Saatchi Gallery in the Chelsea area unlike previous years at Somerset House. I was rubbing shoulders with many big names from world famous designers like Jimmy Choo to reality stars such as Paisley Billings of Tattoo Fixers. You could tell it was a star studded event from the stunning architecture of the building to the many rooms fulled with designer clothes.
I must admit, most of the clothes were slightly out of my price range as they reached hundreds of pounds but hey, who doesn't like window shopping?! Being the last day of London Fashion Weekend, most of the clothes in my size had gone during the previous days. Being 5 foot 1, size 4 on top and 6 on the bottom, XS is the only size I can really fit into. It was a blessing in disguise though as I wasn't tempted to blow a weeks wages on an item of clothing.
It was time for the catwalk and it was focused on the latest trends for A/W16. We sat on the second row so we had a great view. On top of this, three gorgeous male models sat in front of us on the frow so I had two great views. The three major trends for this season include lace, velvet and winter florals. The models wore items of clothing that can be purchased on Avenue 32 which means we can get our hands on the latest trends right now! You can already see essences of these trends in high street shops with many garments now featuring embroidered florals and lace inserts. I'm so excited for these trends and I can't wait to see what items the high street stores will bring out over the next coming weeks.
After a full day of window shopping and catwalk watching, we made a quick dash to Zara across the road. So in the end, I didn't leave Chelsea empty handed after all!
