Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, lived a fashionista who endlessly dreamt of gracing the front row of London Fashion Week. Being surrounded by Chanel, Dior, and Louboutin, this fairytale fashionista had a dream to make dressing exquisitely her life’s work.

London Fashion Week – Day 3 onwards… (Celebrities at Luella pictures included)

So I realize I haven't update since Saturday, which is really bad of me, but I've been real busy!

So I'm going to cover all the days from then, till now in one super big post.

I have loads of outfit pictures to take, because I didn't take any on the days of the show (too busy.)

Sunday was pretty chill.

Betty Jackson was at 9:15, I could barely wake up that morning. But I love Betty Jackson.

I went to a presentation by the designer "Modernist" and saw his collection. It was my first presentation of the week, but I quite liked it (and it was a lot easier to take photo's – models are literally running off the catwalk at some shows). So we met the designer, talked to him for a bit about his collection, and took some pictures.

I really quite liked the collection, especially the use of human hair on the dresses. Really unique.

From then, we went for lunch and then planned to see Nico Didonna at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout venue. Eley Kishimoto was afterwards. I really liked the collection, it was airport themed. The opening music was "Come fly with me", the invites for the show were plane tickets, the collection was called "Jet Set Masala", and prior to the show starting, and we could hear airport announcements in Japanese. It was very fun, but quite hard to take pictures of (sprinting models again)

However, I managed to snap these…

Afterwards, quick trips to the press lounge, a walk about in the exhibition… Was so amazingly excited about Luella, she is one of my favourite designers, and being invited to her show meant so much to me, not to mention they were excellent seats!

Ossie Clark, THE Ossie Clark brand – but designed by Avsh Alom Gur, was an excellent collection. I was really excited to be invited to the show, as it is a brand that is part of fashion history.

Luella has definitely stolen the place of best show for me. As per usual, the audience was extremely star studded. Including:

  • Kanye West
  • Pixie Geldof (modeling)
  • Sir Bob Geldof & Peaches Geldof (Supporting Pixie who was modeling in the show)
  • Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud
  • Kaya Scodelario (Effy from Skins and girl in my blog header)
  • Portia Freeman

I was quite excited to see them up close, needless to say.

Here are some pictures I took of the famous faces:

I also adored almost every piece in her collection. It matches my style completely, here are some pictures I took of some of the looks:

Overall, definitely my favourite show of the week. Hopefully I'll get invited next season, and pluck up the courage to actually talk to a couple of celebrities. Yeh…

From then, the Mulberry presentation followed. A lot of people who attended to Luella show planned to go to the Mulberry presentation also. We were treated to scarab beetle shaped biscuits, freshly squeezed juices, and other canapé's. There were beetles (fake of course) everywhere. On the invitation, the scenery, the biscuits, so I was intrigued to see the collection. The presentation started with an audio clip from Snow White (where the Queen asks the mirror who is the fairest of them all) which quickly mixed into music, with "Mirror, Mirror on the wall. Who's the fairest of them all" played on loop. I loved the collection, especially the bags and purses.

I was also invited to Harriet's Muse, Maria Grachvogel and William Tempest (Emma Watson was there). I loved William Tempest's collection.

Osman Yousefzada, Josh Goot, Emma Bell, Momo, Tim Soar, Carolyn Massey. I obviously cannot go into detail about all the shows. Although, as expected, I love Emma Bell. I went last year, and I really admire her quirky designs. Josh Goot has always been a favourite of mine, so I was pretty excited also.

I'll post links to the articles when they are all published.

This reminds me, I've got a lot of writing to do…

Outfit posts later.
