This season at London Fashion Week was really, really fun. It was distinctly quieter than previous seasons; I had heard rumours of how an increase of over 2000 bloggers had applied for accreditation this season compared to last, and as a result the BFC has tightened up their belts and been much stricter with whom they’d allow – thankfully (and somewhat bizarrely?) I still managed to get my special lanyard!
I had intended to make three days but only managed two in the end as I had to DJ that weekend also, and it was just a bit too much all at once. I had initially been gifted some items from Motel to wear for it, but sadly they didn’t arrive in time so I had to make some (very!) last minute outfit choices – for my main day I wore a Coco Fennel mushroom tea dress and for my second I wore a Miss Selfridge Maxi. As the rain was horrendous, that was a major factor in determining accessories and styling. An extra zip-up hoody, jumper and hat were always jammed into my already full bag (I guess I was rocking a street/grunge vibe), ready to layer up in a bid to lessen the blow of the torrential rain for later on.
Highlights included seeing Terry Barber work his make-up magic backstage at Jean Pierre-Braganza (and spotting all the lovely upcoming nail collections from Orly - OMG DEM PINKS AND CORALS!!! LOVE.) and also, as I do every season, getting my hair done at the Toni & Guy Blow Out Bar! This time I got a blow dry instead of a trim and it was, of course, brilliant. I particularly enjoyed the mini bottles of Prosecco given! I will be demanding this at every salon experience from now on.
The season also saw the return of the Glam Media suite!! Yay! I had missed it terribly last season. Instead of being hosted by Rimmel, L’Oreal were running the show this time and as I mentioned in my last post , peeps were treated to quick, glam hairstyles at the L’Oreal Elnett Hair Fix Bar.
There was the opportunity to grab quirky manicures, too, and even pick up some specs from Osiris! I found a cute fifties inspired pair and just need to get my prescription lenses put in, and they’re good to go!
Overall a really enjoyable Fashion Week experience, my favourite yet I think. I might do some more LFW in-depth coverage later, but I’ve read so much on it already I’m not sure what else I can offer..? Let me know if you’d like it and I will!
