Yes, I had never been to the London Fashion Week before. Not that I have been now, but as I was right on the other side of Somerset House to see the exhibition Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! (which, by the way, I highly recommend) and decided to go and have a look at what was going on. Unfortunately photography wasn’t allowed in the exhibition so I couldn’t take any images to show you, just this one, taken by the entrance.
I was with my friend Lala from Ohlalali, and by the time we arrived at the entrance on the other side we could see that a lot of people were already leaving. I think most likely because the sun was starting to go down, as there were still shows going on, for what I gathered. Nonetheless, there were still plenty of people hanging around, taking photos or waiting for someone to ask them to take their photos. I was only there for about 20 minutes, took some photos of a couple of people and left as there was nothing there to see, really. I didn’t really understand why people will go and spend their days hanging around if they’re not either working or attending the shows…
These girls scandalized me, because it was goddamn cold!!!
Regular blokes – having all the fun.
Cute looking girl.
And this is me… wrapped up very warm as I am still recovering from a mofo cold. This photo was taken in a much less stylish location – in front of Tesco’s! Haha. Details: Coat – Zara, Metallic Leather Skirt – River Island (both from a swap with my friend Lili), Knee Highs – H&M (on sale), Bag – Ahcahcum Muchacha, Pink Boots – Doc Martens (via Ebay), Ivory Cashmere Jumper – from a jumble sale, Cardigan – H&M (via Ebay), Scarf – secret Santa, Hat – it was my Mum’s.
I am told I may be given some decent photos of the Fashion Week shenagigans to post later in the week, so stay tuned!
Well, fab hair guy was pretty interesting but I’d really much rather see what’s up with Sara Fashion Week!
That was fab hair and I bow down to the bravery of those girls baring their legs! You look pretty fab yourself though! x
My goodness, those girls’ legs must have been sooooo cold!
So do people really just go and hang about outside the show venues, hoping to be photographed? That’s hilarious!
You look cosy AND stylish (see, it can be done!), loving your mum’s hat and the metallic skirt. xxx
Looks awesome doll, I wish I could have gone!! Far too cold for me to be wearing what those other girls are wearing, I think I could come up with something more stylish and warm 🙂 You look great, love your mum’s hat, that is perfect!! Must go to these one day :)) xx
Loving this post, it looks like you had a great time and nice to see you looking stylish but warm!
you look really warm and cute, love your martens and that pretty pink blush you’re wearing!, fabulous!
And it’s so nonsense how so many people hanging around fashion shows they’re not going to attend! and those girls without hosiery in the bleak midwinter!! arghhh!
glad you enjoyed the exhibition, it looks interesting!
acho que o meu comentário ficou horrível, com uma redaçâo moito incoerente! desculpe!
You fit right in with the fabulous wrap and your pink Docs! And I think British women always show the most leg, even when the temperature (and good taste) advise against it.
Aw I love this post! The photos are brilliant and you look adorable all wrapped up in your outfit. Especially love your pink boots! 🙂
Hope you had a smashing time lady xx
AM I TURNING INTO MY OWN NAN CAUSE I DON’T THINK ANYTHING IS GREAT ABOUT BEING INAPPROPRIATELY DRESSED FOR THE SEASON! THOSE GIRLS WITH THE BARE LEGS….HONESTY I HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT SMACKS OF TRYING TOO HARD AND BEING A BIT DAFT WHEN IT’S FREEZING! STYLE ZERO IN MY OPINION. BEST PERSON THERE….. YOU IN YOUR COSY LAYERS AND FABULOUS BOOTS!
love those boots!!
I went last year but I enjoyed it a lot! The crazy, cool outfits and the whole atmosphere was vibrant and inspiring. I think as a blogger it’s cool to experience it but other than attending a valuable fashion show there’s no point at going there each fashion week for the sake of getting noticed or to ‘peacock’ lol
