My dear friend, Sonia, gave me the most wonderful, surprise Birthday present – two hot tickets to London Fashion Weekend. We headed down the cobbles of the sumptuous Somerset House, greeted by some serious street-style and trend-spotters galore. I was in fashionista’s paradise and in my element!
First stop, the Vodafone VIP Lounge, where we were treated to fashion royalty.
Fashion journalist, Hilary Alexander OBE, gave us insights into the fashion industry, showcased some of her triumphs and divuldged tips for career success – hosted by fashion stylist, columnist and TV presenter, Antonia O’Brien.
Creative juices flowing, we hit the BFC Courtyard Show Space for some runway magic. Soaking up the latest trends (and already contemplating my new wardrobe), we were treated to the best seats in the house, the FROW. Camera-ready, let the show commence…
THE CATWALK SHOW
Coffee break! Being a passionate coffee-lover, I was ecstatic to see my favourite coffee-house, Lavazza, as LFWend sponsors. Dean the ‘Lavazza Man’ totally looked after us. Although, I may have got overexcited and told him far too much about our amazing A-Modo-Mio machine at work, but he was truly dedicated into showing me how to make THE perfect americano. Lavazza were also running a twitter competition to win a year’s supply of coffee – SIGN. ME. UP. – Sweet #LavazzaMoments, here is was our #LavazzaLook entry. And yes, of course we did, we had to involve Dean too!
Caffeine-fix, we’re ready for the Canon 360 experience. Best known as E! Glam Cam 360 at prestigious award ceremonies – a photo-booth of joy – with cameras situated all the way round to capture your every angle. You enter, 3-seconds, flash, boom. I think they definitely captured our best look. What do you think? 🙂
Fancy a cocktail? Celebrations in the sky, we headed to uber-chic, Radio Rooftop Bar. Offering the most spectacular views of London’s skyline, we were completely spoilt with delicious drinks and nibbles as we watched the sunset over the city…
A truly magnificent day. Thank you, Sonia 🙂
Until next season, LFW…
