Hello! I’m sorry this is going to be such a picture heavy post, I’ve had the busiest and most surreal two days so have been getting very snap happy! I’ve been totally bowled over by the whole LFW experience so far and have had so much fun seeing the shows, and meeting up with lots of my blogger chums! (yes, I did say chums). Day 1 consisted of a VERY early start (5:30am anyone?!) and heading to the first show of the week, Antoni & Alison- which was great (despite MEGA nerves), I even had a pretty good seated view which made me feel super V.I.P ;). The rest of the day consisted of paying a visit to the backstage area of Felder & Felder and experiencing the utter mayhem that occurs 20 minutes before show time, and how some of the awesome hair and make up is created- all before one of my favourite shows of the day, with lots of chunky knits and metallic detailing. I was also lucky enough to get to see the visually stunning Orla Kiely AW12 presentation and tea dance (biscuits and all) which consisted of models, all in the most gorgeous leather, sequinned and sheer dresses dancing with some rather handsome gents in between champagne and tea! I also got a cheeky peek of PPQ’s AW12 collection; an array of ombred flowing fabric, deep velvet and monochrome prints.
(Day 2 outfit: H&M jacket, Whistles jumper, Topshop skirt, House of Holland key looks, finale, spying on a certain Nick Grimshaw, sitting opposite from my dream posse, cameras & paps, amazing venue, arty farty snap)
Prior to the House of Holland show this afternoon I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous/left myself more time to get somewhere in my life. Arriving to the venue half an hour early I got in the queue, surrounded by some seriously well dressed attendees, and tapped my toes in anticipation. After seeing Miss Chung tweet that she was on her way I had some serious cyber fan girling moments via Twitter and composed myself just in time for the show start (until I realised I was seated virtually opposite and it happened over again, see above stalky snaps…). The collection consisted of 70s inspired sportswear, metallic flecks of detail, grown up tailoring of course thrown in with typical HOH irreverent prints (hounds tooth and zig-zags being the key players this season).
(p.s I’m sorry if this sounds too much like a diary entry/story of my life, I have so much I want to talk about and can’t go into to much detail without rambling!)
