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 Two

Hello there lovelies!

Before I forget, what I wore today...


Had fun today! Went to the UK & International Young Fashion Entrepreneur award ceremony, presented by Hilary Alexander…


Oh the woes of being fifteen. It was a champagne reception, but I had to have orange juice instead. At least it was in a champagne flute. The ceremony was pretty good, and the finalists seemed like good designers.

I had to run off early from that show, to make John Rocha. I really liked the show, and would love some of the pieces. Only caught the one picture, the models were walking a bit fast, my camera couldn't cope! Did some videoing though… am I ever going to upload these? Or are they going to sit in my camera taking up space. Gah.

Afterwards, I went to the Topshop Unique show. I've been looking forward to it since… well, last season's show. This time I was invited to the pre-show reception. With consisted of loads of beautifully dressed girls, champagne (not for me) and canapés.

I got mini-interviewed by the Topshop team. They asked me about what I was wearing, if I'm excited about the show etc. I'm pretty sure I spoke mainly rubbish, so I wouldn't be surprised if my footage ends up on the cutting room floor. Would be pretty awesome if they do, but let's wait and see.



And then… my camera died. So I whipped out the camcorder and did some more videoing (oh joy, more video that will probably never be uploaded onto the computer, never mind edited and made into a video. I will try though, promise!)

The Topshop Unique show definitely lived up to my expectations, and more some. I saw Daisy Lowe and Pixie Geldof! In fact, they sat pretty close to me.

*star struck*

Oh, and we got a really hot scarf/shall from the Autumn Winter 09 collection. It's grey and is so awesome, and the fact that not that many people will have it makes me happy! Will make an outfit around it, and post it after LFW is over. My complimentary Topshop lunch was pretty yummy too :)

After the show, I had some lunch, hung out in the press lounge, and looked around the exhibition. And then off to the Horace show…





I've always liked Horace, and was pretty excited to be invited. It started late (most Vauxhall Fashion Scout shows do, unfortunately), but was well worth it! I really want some of the pieces.

Today was pretty hectic. Shows were moved to different venues, and there was loads of confusion. So I stuck to four events, and enjoyed myself immensely!

Tomorrow is going to be quite busy.

Betty Jackson (9:15! I don't think I can make it, but I will try), Modernist, Nico Didonna, Eley Kishimoto, Hemyca, Romina Karamanaea, Emilio De La Morena & Krystof Strozyna.

Pretty excited about Eley Kishimoto.

Anyway, I must sleep, and rest my aching feet. (That's what you get for walking all day, for two days, in 4 or 5 inch heels.)

Did you find out whether you could say the fashion website you wrote for? I think it's really amazing that you write for a publication at so young.

I'm smashtastic on T.V.

I really love your boots, where did you get them?

It makes me so jealous that you went to Luella. I'm so in love.
