My ‘Fashion’ week started on Thursday 11th September at the GQ style night on Carnaby Street.
The next of couple of days consisted of doing a bit of people watching (one of my favourite things to do). I love people watching not just for fashion week but all year round but there is something about Somerset House during fashion week that makes people watching even more enjoyable (oh that sounds somewhat creepy doesn’t it?!).
Monday…I attended the BloggersLoveLFW event which took place at the Penthouse, Leicester square! It was a fantastic evening as I got to meet some fabulous new brands as well as take home loads of wonderful goodies on offer which I have worn throughout the week.
Absolutely love these Telles Silk Scarve
and this necklace by Nadia Minkoff
Tuesday was rest day from London Fashion Week events but the topic was still on fashion. I went to the Google offices to talk how google can help your eCommerce business within the fashion industry. This event was organised by the guys from Fashion Forum LDN
Hump day Wednesday, I was invited to an exclusive party organised by French Connection with Troy the Magician being the guest of honour. The evening was fabulous and consisted of champagne, loads of sweet treats and a DJ playing the finest tunes with myself and a few of the other guests strutting our stuff to Candy by Cameo…check out the song here (its hard not to dance when this song comes on…ha).
On to Thursday….ah Thursday was a long but enjoyable day. I attended a total of five events on this day, some I was invited to and some I randomly stumbled upon.
First up was breakfast at Mango talking careers and viewing the latest collection.
For me fashion is more than how we look, I love hearing the story behind the brand. So you can imagine my excitement when I was invited to watch a presentation on the current collaboration G-Star Raw has with Pharrell Williams. A collaboration in which Pharrell himself initiated (this man does not only look great at 41 but is also a genius). The collaboration ‘Raw for the Oceans’…wait for it….Denim made from recycled plastic bottles. Click here to see what it is all about! What a fab idea?!
After that it was off to Joy Everley – Fine Jewellers 16th Birthday where I enjoyed cocktails and cupcakes. The jewellery range is inspired from the creators’ own desire to wear unusual, fresh and enhancing jewellery design incorporating precious metals and stones. Absolutely loved the collection!
Next I slipped into an art gallary!
Final event the day ended with a trip to the House of Fraser beauty event, as well as discounts on various beauty products the evening also consisted of cocktails and champagne as well as Music from Arize, an up and coming girl band who has recently appeared on the xfactor.
Friday….I enjoyed a Q&A session with Jasmine Guinness, model turned designer answered an arrany questions including ‘what is your style day-to-day?’ Jasmine said “Jeans and trainers due to working in a toy shop and in the evening I like dressing up in a nice dress”. Jasmine also said she likes to mix high street with designer as it is always good to mix things up.
Saturday…it was off to the Marks and Spencer catwalk show at Somerset House for London Fashion Weekend. Quite impressed with the latest offerings from M&S!
Sunday…and that is a wrap, well until next week that is! But for now I’ll be in bed catching up on my shows. #GoodStuff
