It’s spring!!! Well, at least in the calendar… But this miserable London weather cannot stand in a way of SS14 hottest trends that will be appearing in my and probably your wardrobes.
So I and my friend Juste have bought the Silver ticket to London Fashion Weekend and Trend catwalk to see what’s the deal. We were well excited! Ha! It was quite a good show I have to say. Four main trends were presented on the catwalk and here are my best pictures representing all of them. We couldn’t sit in the FROW so forgive me for protruding heads at the bottom of some pictures 😀
So I went to Somerset House on the very first day of London Fashion Week and I couldn’t have chosen the worse time to do so… It was windy and raining non-stop (what a surprise, London!!) and, therefore, there were not that many people around, which was quite disappointing.. Anyway, I did what I came to do, and that was to take some style snaps!
I came accross Hema Kaul’s SS14 collection and it stroke me how simple, yet fabulous it was! Hema is the fashion designer from Dubai and has already showcased her work at the Fashion weeks in London and Dubai. Her latest collection is full of femininity and elegance, expressed through pastel and metallic colours, lots of lace details and clean, classic cuts.
The pieces from the collection are easy to incorporate into a life of a modern woman, who appreciates simplicity and wants to show her feminine side.
Here are some more snaps from London Fashion Week at Somerset House. London never fails to surprise me with the amount of creativity and craziness possessed by our young and creative generation. It seams like every person who is related to fashion in one or another way went completely bonkers (in a good way) to express their individuality and showcase their style, designs and personality. Somerset court yard was even more colourful and eccentric than Camden on the weekends or Soho during Gay pride. But that’s the way it should be. Fashion Week is there to celebrate the new fashion and discover new talents so let’s celebrate it properly. Fashion industry was never meant for shy and modest.
It’s been a while but I’m back and I missed my little blog!! Also, i’m very excited as tomorrow starts London Fashion Week! A little heaven for all fashionistas 🙂 Well, I have to admit I don’t have any invitations and I’m not going to sit at the FROW, but that does not mean I can’t go there and enjoy! I’ll try to snap some pictures as well! Maybe sneak into a show??? 😉
So here is a little topic to think about before the fashion world gets all crazy: Can you be too trendy??
So… I love fashion to death but I still think you need to be clever about it…
I was on the tube the other day and I saw a girl who was dressed up in all the latest fashions and toped up with long hair extensions. Clothes were nice and trendy; she was like a poster girl for High Street shopping. However… something was missing… That little touch of personality, a little twist and personalisation maybe??
Claire Barrow is a new, quickly emerging face in a fashion world. Westminster University graduate got noticed because of her hand-painted leather jackets, already worn by Rihanna and Jessie J. She has already collaborated with Joseph and presented her collection at London Fashion Week SS/13 witch was influenced by alcohol packaging.
I love her leather jackets influenced by punk and DIY culture. It is nice to see a new talent with a fresh take on fashion.
