Logan and I had a great time at London Fashion Weekend ~ an event which follows London Fashion Week (those tickets available by invitation only). Basically the weekend consists of fashion shows and designer shops set up throughout Somerset House. All clothing and shoes were at discounted rates but, even at discounts, the prices are still too steep for me. Fashionista I’m not.
We attended the Trend Catwalk styled by the legendary stylist and award-winning fashion director, Hilary Alexander. Both Logan and I were inspired by the show to work on our spring wardrobes ~ the four trends in the show were Graphic, Urban, Eastern Promise and Doll House. The clothes were all so beautiful and the models were so professional (and pretty). My favorite is the Graphic Art trend (very sixties) and Logan’s is the Dolls House. We plan on hitting the High street to get the latest fashions or better yet, going online for the lowest prices of the new trends. As the host of the show said, it’s time to put away the winter black. Hmmm…I thought that was a year-round color.We enjoyed shopping and my favorite store was Melabelle. It’s a British label by Bella Cager. Logan bought a beautiful spring top which I might have to borrow. The woman running the shop was friendly and gorgeous ~ no doubt a model. On this, the coldest day of winter so far, I was especially drawn to the LONG sleeved dresses in the Melabelle line. Just what I need to get me through the rest of our stay in London.
All in all, it was a great way to spend a cold winter’s day ~ dreaming of spring (or at least spring fashion).
My attempt at being a fashion photographer was rather poor and I didn’t get much of the Graphic Art styles because I was adjusting to the lighting. Here’s what I ended up with:
