London Fashion Weekend

Hey guys! This post is long overdue and I do apologise but even though it was a over a month ago now I must post on London Fashion Weekend. I was lucky enough to fly down to London for a few days with some people from my course. I got to check out the event at Somerset House and attend a trend catwalk show which was amazing! Of course there was some time spared for shopping and as well as Oxford Street and the centre, I spent an afternoon at Camden Market which is possibly my new favourite place! It was my first time in London and I completely fell in love with the city. There is something very surreal about the atmosphere and I got a taste for the lifestyle which I will perhaps adopt in the future. I will definitely be planning some more trips there soon!

The catwalk show at LFW featured the four main trends that are due to make an appearance this season. These looks were Graphic Art, Urban Life, Eastern Promise and Dolls House. It was presented to us by Zoe Hardman and showcased looks styled by Hilary Alexander.



 The key things to look out for S/S 2013 are monochrome as featured in Graphic Art. Don't be afraid to wear it on a larger scale incorporating reds and blues in to your Black and whites to really stand out.  A quirkier take on typical workwear as shown in Urban Lifestyle. Eg Pinafores (which are already everywhere and are a staple buy this season!) Bold prints and kimono style fabrics as inspired by the East! As well as lots of lace, florals and perfect pastel shades to bring out the girly girl in you as featured in Dolls House.
This video I took on the day shows the Eastern Promise trend on the catwalk.
One of my favourite buys were these sunglasses (left) I got them for just £6.00 at Camden Market!
Leicester Square was so beautiful and visiting the Topshop flagship store was another highlight. I must have spent around 3 hours in there and then proceeded to go back the next day to spend some more! I have well and truly fallen for LDN and can't wait to go back!
Lots of Love
