London Fashion Week has been a dream of mine for so long and when I received a few invites for the shows, I was over the moon. I wanted to be honest and tell you guys that it’s quite difficult to get tickets as a new blogger. Most of the tickets are allocated to influencers with hundreds and thousands of followers as well as those who have impressive contact list within the fashion industry. Therefore, I was that more grateful to receive a few standing tickets for shows based on my content and style. I received tickets for Teatum Jones, Bora Aksu and Toga and I couldn’t be happier.
As you may imagine dressing from London Fashion Week is a daunting task as you will be compared to a whole lot of amazing fashionistas that help drive our blogging industry forward. I wanted to go for a feminine touch with an edge which I really feel describes my style so I thought what better color to opt for than pink. My sweatshirt is from Zara with round ribbed collar, long sleeves with ribbed cuffs and uneven hem, a pink bomber and pink Gucci Marmont bag represented a more feminine side. I styled the pink pieces with my 501 Levi’s jeans and Perspex Heel boots worn with fishnets for that edgy on-trend element.
I watched the first show of the London Fashion Week, Tatum Jones which was so cool. The music and the clothes really made the atmosphere so amazing. The collection in itself explored key signature shapes such as their statement oversized coats and column dresses, taking the seams apart and reconstructing them using contrasting sheer layers, eyeleted seams and strapped waistlines with extra-long tapes. The results are bell sleeves that mask the wearers’ hands, oversized collars that exaggerate the neckline and optional hemlines that almost want to escape from within a garment. Many of the garments appear to simultaneously have two layers of skin. Inspired by imperfect geometry. Rejecting the soft curves and round sockets of Bellmer’s doll silhouettes, Teatum Jones have moved instead towards awkward and imperfect squares.
I love Bora Aksu as he always manages to deliver clothes that are so dreamy and romantic but almost with a twist. The AW17 collection that drove inspiration from the Princes Sophia Dunleep Sing, known for being one of the Suffragette and campaigning for woman’s rights alongside Emmeline Pankhurst. The collection featured beautiful lace and ruffles with black bonnets. Black, white and pastel colors dominated the catwalk and dresses looked so pretty. I will share my favorite looks shortly.
What did you guys think of my look? Have any of you attended the London Fashion Week too?
