London Fashion Week: September 2018

Hello hello!

This September, this is the most talked about event in town!

I will be sharing my London Fashion Week journey with you, ups and downs, incredible to horrible shows and all that jazz! I will also be featuring some of my favourite shows and outfits. Ps. If you swipe left on some of my Instagram posts during Fashion Week, you could find a little surprise prepared for you: I hid some of my favourite shows behind my most recent photos. Those of you who has been with me since the beginning of this journey, you know I am very, very picky when it comes to hair and make up and I only trust the most professional businesses in their own field. I will start by telling you about how I started preparing for fashion week, and how I did my hair, makeup and pampering routine. Enjoy darlings!

2 Days Before Fashion Week: Fittings

Fittings

  • I went to visit some of my favourite agencies and brands for fittings right before fashion week

  • These could be brand’s own clothes for bloggers/models/celebrities to wear during shows

  • It could also be your own style and taste for street style photography (street style is big in London!)

  • Here are some of my favourite fittings: with brands such as Karen Millen and Debenhams.

  • Karen Millen: I loved the new Atelier Collection, and immediately fell in love with this dark green glimmery dress.

  • Debenhams: For the Stories of Arabia show, I wore the beautiful long glamorous dress which made me feel like a princess!
