Hi everyone! First and foremost I want to apologize for the lack of posts recently.. I have just realized that this is my first post of the week! Ahh.. I am so ashamed with myself as I usually post three times, but unfortunately I’ve been extremely busy lately with university work taking up my time! Surely you can understand.. But on another note this past week had actually been a very eventful time for me as well! My mom came to visit me from Paris during the weekend, which was really nice! I also had the opportunity to attend the Cheltenham races for Ladies Day for the first time courtesy of EtailPR along with other lovely bloggers, and lastly I modeled in a bridal couture photoshoot here in London and to tell you, I just had the most amazing time! If you’re following me on Instagram you would have already seen some sneak peeks, but more to come later as I can’t wait to show you and to see the final result myself!
Now on to the last day of London Fashion Week, which now seems so long ago! For day 5 I was inspired by the preppy schoolgirl look, but with a more modern and tomboy edge! With a denim shirt instead of a white shirt, a Burberry plaid skirt rather than a monotone one, a matching Burberry tie giving off a little masculine-feminine vibe, and a beige trench to tie it all together, this look had definitely brought out a new side to my fashion sense! I’d love to know what you think of this look!
The two shows that I had the opportunity to attend were both located at the Somerset House, and were Emilio de la Morena and H by Hakaan Yildirim. Beginning with Emilio de la Morena, he eloquently showcased femininity through the creation of a rich and opulent collection. A glamorous story was told in the detail and construction of the garments, such as the slit velvet dresses, oversized coats and lace bodycons. Deep reds, purples and blues were the primary colors used, as well as black and gold to bring out an air of rock-star cocktail inspired looks. What do you think of the AW15 collection?
The second show I attended, and also the last show of London Fashion Week, was H by Hakaan Yildirim, whose collection also showcased femininity with sexy silhouettes, although he did it rather differently. The collection was bold and bright, with a contrast between the relaxed looks and strong masculine-feminine attitude. A creative use of patterns and textures was used in Yildirim’s collection, with silk, velvet, fur and leather being the statement, along with dominating red, green, cream and black tones. Headpieces were also a big statement, and were used as matching accessories that truly made the collection even more remarkable and intriguing.
That is all from London Fashion Week, and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading these posts as much as I have enjoyed writing them for you!
