LONDON Fashion Weekend - Review & Snaps

I spent the day at London Fashion Weekend yesterday and it was immense!
After going last February in the evening I opted for a daytime ticket this time to catch all things Autumn/Winter in the light.
 Somerset House was jam packed with fashionable attire starting with the south wing full of heritage brands such as Pringle of Scotland and Aubin & Wills, the west wing had the more premium brands such as House of Holland and Ducie and the east wing was full of upmarket brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Robert Cavalli and many more.
The Showspace was full of sparkling jewellery, hair and beauty treats and the Vodafone lounge was in the back.
With all of that there were also lots of pop up shops in the first floor such a Levi's Curve ID store & bar!

Vodafone Lounge talk - Twitter with special guests:

Henry Holland - Designer
Carrie Tyler - Editor
Rosanna Falconer - Digital Marketing Executive, British Fashion Council
Rachel Bremer - European Communications Manager, Twitter

I stumbled in to the Vodafone lounge at just the right time. An intimate talk with Henry, Carrie, Rosanna & Rachel had begun expressing their personal views and advise about starting up twitter as a business and how to maintain it. Being a big Henry Holland fan I was really happy to catch this especially as he added his own witty comments to the talk and it was full of helpful hints.

The Catwalk

The three key trends showcased for this coming season were Kitchen Chic sixties bright prints, silhouettes, layering with eye popping knits to keep you warm in the up and coming winter chills, Sergeant Indigo with masculine shapes, military and lots of over sizing coats, parkas, trousers and shirts with Indigo this winters favourite colour and Lady Brocade with it gorgeous embroideries, metallic quilting you can't help but notice with this trend is full of sequins and velvet. My favourite show was the Sergeant Indigo, I loved the boyish clothes with pretty hair, messy buns and braids. I think this look can be powerful and sexy all in one.

It's dark but beautiful.

I had a great day at Somerset House, my highlight had to be seeing the talk in the Vodafone Lounge, these talks with different special guests will be held each day so if you're heading down make sure you don't miss it!
