LONDON FASHION WEEK | DAY 1 | STREET STYLE

#LFW- AW15

This season of London Fashion Week celebrates the British Fashion Council Business Pillar. With this in mind, I was geared up and ready for a great few days of shows and events. The line up for Day 1 had some of my favourite designers such as Sass & Bide and Eudon Choi.

Being that LFW is predominately geared towards fashion enthusiasts, bloggers, designers, buyers and press, it is an 'invite only' occasion for those that would like to see the actual shows. However, the British Fashion Council make this seasonal event accessible in other ways, so that you can feel like you are actually there.
Watching the shows live online or onsite at Somerset House on the big screen, is as close to sitting on the FROW. Following LFW, is London Fashion Weekend, which is open to the public, enabling them to buy tickets to see these same shows. 

One of the highlights of being at LFW for me is experiencing the street style. London is a city known for fashion, but on occasions like these, everyone steps it up a notch. I'm always inspired by other styling and looked forward to meeting bloggers, designers and fashion enthusiasts.



The weather has been pretty poo and it certainly was cold waiting on shows to begin whilst posing for photographers. It seemed as though the weather had everyone matching in monochrome. Black will always be the new black haha.
It was nice to see that people still made it out for street style. Some fashionsitas mainly come specifically for this. It's a great opportunity to mingle, exchange business cards and network.
Photographers swarm the celebrities that enter and exit the shows, trying to get the best shots and angles. They also capture the most outrageous styles to the sophisticated and regal outfits.

As cold and gloomy as the day was, there was a pop of colour from a few lavishly dressed people.


This fresh faced model dressed in Lulu Liu, wore a lovely red heavy weight coat, perfect for the fresh weather. Effortlessly chic, yet bold.
I loved the contrast of spring colours worn by the young lady in the second picture. Bright and vivacious!
Reality TV star Phoebe, looked eccentric and cool wearing a metallic dress, pink and red accents of colour with just the right amount of fur.
 As relaxed as this stallion was dressed, his statement piece, was all about his 6 inch red bottom heels. Many girls kill for a pair of Christian Louboutins, and this dude effortless strolled around Somerset House in these killer boots. Definitely an eye-catching moment.

Seeing and conversing with the lovely Tasha Green was also a highlight for me. If you don't already know, Tasha is a beauty, fashion and lifestyle vlogger on YouTube. With a huge following on Instagram as well as YouTube of over 100,000 subscribers combined, she has a huge influence and platform.
Briefly chatting with Tasha, it was very refreshing to come across a genuine and humble being that finds time to speak with her subscribers, not letting the 'YouTube fame' change her interaction with people who are inspired by her work, lifestyle and tutorials. Tasha is an effortless, natural and minimalistic beauty. Check out her channel youtube.com/tashaxgreen.

Interestingly it was an eye opener to also converse with mainly females that felt a negative energy during LFW. Being that it is a place to 'show off' and 'present' your fashion sense, it can also become an scene from Mean Girls.


What I wore:
Dressed in head to toe Disorder from Disorder Boutique, I chose to wear this two piece design by the Hooligans. I was drawn to the shape of the blouse, the loud 60's reminiscent print and the A/W colour palette.
