I’ve always wanted to go to LFW since I was like 13… this year was my first time. I’m not going to write any reviews on the shows I went to because you can go to Vogue for that. I did take a few photos, mainly because I study Fashion communication and styling but I will pop a few below! I feel like there is a lot of competition at fashion week, which I don’t really understand but I was so thrilled to even get an invite to anything on schedule after only starting my blog in January, I’m so grateful for all the opportunities so far. It’s funny because if you work in the fashion industry it’s all you hear about when fashion week is on, however, if you don’t people don’t understand what all the fuss is about, they just see people walking around in crazy outfits and photographers everywhere!
I went to the New Look launch, Wolf and Badger launch, Haizhan wang, Katie Ann Mcguigan, Edeline Lee, Paul Costello, 3 international fashion shows and Sharon Wauchob. On schedule shows were important to me, they are the ones I mainly research for university and base projects on! It’s funny as I didn’t know how anything worked and I went to a few on my own (which was massively out of my comfort zone) I had my sunglasses on to cover my face if I did something stupid rather than to look sassy. I was on the way to the Edeline Lee presentation at the strand and I remember thinking oh god oh god oh god, but it was fine, sometimes you have to go out of your comfort zone I wrote why HERE.
I stayed true to my usual style during fashion week, particularly the last day where I wore a tracksuit. I always love to have a pop of colour or a statement piece my 5 looks are below!
I stayed at the Amba Hotel during Fashion Week and honestly it was one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Everyone was so friendly and made sure that everything was perfect and the bed THE BED if I was super woman, I would’ve taken it out that door when I left and dropped it in my new flat! The hotel had beautiful decor and everything was just as I would expect. The location was perfect for fashion week, only a 5-minute walk to 180 the Strand so I didn’t have to mess around changing shoes etc on the way tbf I wore trainers anyway…. My check-in time was 3 o’clock but as I arrived early they let me go straight to my room where they had an IPAD ready on charge for me to catch up on shows which I didn’t go too! There was a Complimentary mini bar so I could have a little glass of wine before I went to bed etc. The bathroom was immaculate, with bath and shower and a huge mirror. I had a full breakfast in the morning which was fabulous, I don’t eat Dairy or Wheat and they were quick to sort me something out that I could eat which I was impressed with, next door they had the bar which I chilled in, in the evening after the shows. I think they have a gym access and luggage storage but I didn’t really have time to go and have a look etc.
Below are a couple of photos from Edeline Lee, which was my favourite show/presentation out of the ones I went to.
