London Fashion Week this year was shorter for me than usual – mainly in the fact that I did less shows than ever and took more time to concentrate on the atmosphere around the shows. It has officially become a madhouse, mostly due to the increase, once again, in street style photographers. It was amazing to watch these people in action. Ever seen a herd of animals move in sync to avoid being eaten by a giant Tiger or Lion? We’ve all seen it on nature programs. It’s a thing of beauty. As I took a step back and observed the streets of London this fashion week, I say humankind imitating nature. Street photographers moved in beautiful motion together as they tried to capture a model or blogger in action, as the figure in question walked the sidewalks as if they were catwalks. The cars on the streets were the only threat to this herd of street style photographers, and yes, several put their lives in danger to get that perfect shot.
While the week may have started to feel like it was put on strictly for the street style hunters, there were plenty more activities happening indoors, away from prying eyes.
On the second day of fashion week I had the great pleasure in attending Coco’s Tea Party‘s style talk with Aspinal in London. This lady is one stylish creature and she shared some great tips with Laura Jackson on how to style up your autumn winter look. Big love.
Following Ella’s chat in the spotlight, we both attended the presentation of Markus Lupfer’s Spring Summer 2015 collection where models were working a California Cool look, cocktail included (see image above).
Let’s talk food for a second, here. At Topshop, I swear these people had a direct dial to my stomach with Krispy Kreme doughnuts and other sweet treats on offer before the catwalk began. It was dangerous, to say the least.
Speaking of sweet treats, running into these beautiful Kate Spade heels outside a presentation was a photo-op in the making!
Then there were the numerous Anna Wintour sightings on the front row of every catwalk attended. Naturally, I’m going to share the front row image of her sharing a bench with Bradley Cooper at Tom Ford.
Speaking of Tom Ford, can you believe this collection? Completely unexpected and a wedding-ish /red carpet dress that is made to make a statement! Hello, nipple glitter!
The week ended with Anya Hindmarch, and there’s more to come on this, so stay tuned. But I”ll preview now with a big balloon Teddy Bear. Need I say more?
