LFW: The Round Up.

As a blogger, Fashion Week almost feels like some sort of rite of passage. I've mentioned before that my blog was never intended to be fashion based, it just sort've happened? I never thought in a million years i'd have been able to get tickets to Fashion Week let alone sit front row at the Fashion International shows alongside the infamous Pandemonia! For once the timing worked out perfectly for me, and I was able to fit it in just before moving back to University.

As a first timer to Fashion Week, i've got to say the experience was incredible. The atmosphere at Somerset House was almost electric, people were so friendly and it was so nice to see other bloggers and vloggers away from the computer screen. I was lucky enough to have been invited to New Look's blogger refuel room, which was a wonderful oasis in the middle of a very wet Fashion Week. There were manicures, a photobooth, an amazing DJ and food, glorious food!
One of the biggest Street Style themes this year were Embellishment, Pinks and of course Tartan (as worn by yours truly!) and I think one of the things i loved most about Fashion Week was how individual and fearless everyone's style was, it was a time to dig out those clothes that you were too scared to wear and work them. Bloggers like Jen (pictured below) were seriously working the "Lady Boy" trend, androdynous cuts with a feminine details in the form of Barbie pink nails!
Another serious trend was Pastels. They are everywhere at the moment and Burberry Prorsum showed us how ladylike and grown up pastels can be. Soft embellishments and sheer fabric seemingly draped on the models brought out a mix of soft sexiness and playfulness in the clothes. And speaking of Burberry, who else noticed Paloma Faith looking impeccable on the frow? Her hair was giving me everything, the colour, the curls, i'd have loved to have sat in-between her and Sienna Miller.
In conclusion? Fashion Week was ah-ma-zing dah-ling!  I think the nicest part of it for me was just meeting so many like minded people. One of my biggest tips for Fashion Week is to be Twitter savvy and to be as friendly and as outgoing as possible! I spoke to literally anyone and everyone! Through doing so I ended up going to shows i didn't even know were on! (Sophia Webster anyone?) And I ended up making friends with some of the nicest bloggers! So if you're thinking of going next season, definitely e-mail your ticket requests early, be clear and concise in your e-mail and remember to leave your postal address! Wear what you love and feel comfortable in, talk to people and most importantly... enjoy the shows :)
