Now that London Fashion Weekend has drawn to a close, it’s time to take a bigger-picture look at what I saw on the runaway at Saatchi Gallery thanks to The Blogger Programme. Already, a few big seasonal trends are emerging, like oversized floral prints, pop art brights, bold stars and stripes motifs.
Read 5 things I’ve learned and experienced during London Fashion Weekend below, and be sure to check all the coverage over on my social media channels.
- London Fashion Weekend is a ticket event. That means ANYONE can get access, enjoy the fashion-packed environment and get a front row seat at a catwalk show.
- Buy half-price designer clothes. Head inside Saatchi Gallery, home to fashion’s biggest pop-up to stock up on next seasons’ wardrobe. Hundreds of British and International brands are on sale, exclusively for London Fashion Weekend customers. This is the perfect excuse to splash your well-earned money on big names that may normally be out of your budget.
- Watch the catwalk shows (Designer and Trend) and enjoy a first look at the key trends of the season. If you don’t see yourself splurging on designer items, you can opt for the Trend presentation rather than a designer lead show. The trend show covers four or five different themes and uses clothes straight from the high street mixed with some more luxurious brands.
- London Fashion Weekend – a star-studded event! Expect to rob shoulders with top presenters, style icons and fashion insiders including Laura Jackson, George Lamb, Martha Ward and Alice Casely-Hayford.
- Once you are fully exhausted from all the shopping you can head for a quick pampering session. Now is your chance to ask the experts for their secret beauty tips.
If you’re planning to attend London Fashion Weekend next year and you want to look as chic as a fashion editor, allow me to show you how. The secret lies within easy styling combinations and lashings of confidence.
I opted for an understated chic jumpsuit from Nobody’s Child – jumpsuits will be huge this season so get in there first and be a leader not a follower. The high neck will score you lots of fashion points, too. Bigger is better for your outwear – this Gloverall coat ticks all the boxes on style, fit and practicality.
