London Fashion Week...

Truly inspiring week.
So I didn't get to go to any of the official catwalk shows, but there's always elle.com/ vogue.com to watch them online...
However, I did get to go to the LFWeekend at Sommerset House on Saturday and saw four collections on the catwalk; the first was "Swan Vesta" which was a mix of garments put together with the inspiration of the film "Black Swan" in mind, the second was the Spring/ Summer '11 collection from Bora Aksu, the third was another mix of pieces names "Lady Brights" which showed the new trend of block colours and contrast and lastly they showed one of my favourite designers Mark Fast and his Spring/ Summer collection.
I only changed the settings after the first couple of collections so please forgive the blurred effects...

If you have never been to London Fashion Weekend I highly recommend it as it is just such an amazing experience. The clothes that you can find at such great discounts is wowwwww. Par exemple... Dolce and Gabbana dress for around £300 reduced from the original price of £2500... So tempting, so tempting... With a matching chiffon blouse...
There are so many unique, new designers that you can find as well, for example I found a designer there who produced hair accessories that included pieces such as colourful feather headbands and bohemian style turbans in deep colours such as wine red and midnight blue. The name of the label was Pearl and Ivy...
Another thing that you can participate in at London Fashion Weekend is the various events put on by the sponsors. I had a make over by Elizabeth Arden and there was a Toni & Guy hair stylist and Vodaphone Screenings which were all available. However, they do all cost so if you were to go to one I would suggest saving up a bundle of money beforehand...
So that was the weekend, but as for the WEEK. Oh my lord. LOUISE GRAY- head over heals for her collection. Head over beautifully colourful heals!

The extravagance and courage of it all simply takes your breath away.

If i find the time, I'll write up my thoughts on the New York, Milan and Paris fashion weeks too!
But being incredibly lazy doesn't help...
