London Fashion Week Day three

Woke up feeling much better!

Funny how a decent night’s sleep can cure most problems.

Feeling adventurous so I decided to go a little out there with today's outfit.



Since my 1st show isn't until 3pm I will finally get the chance to look around the London Fashion week exhibitions and see what new designers are featured.


While waiting for a friend in the courtyard at Somerset I was approached by some photographers and bloggers who asked to take my picture so I got my Vogue on despite being petrified
Unfortunately the show ran late causing me to miss the fashions finest showcase so I decided to have a spot of lunch



And do some window shopping



I then went down to Grace in Piccadilly where my friend Mary Martin was having a photo shoot for some of her newest creations


Here are some pictures taken of me by bloggers and photographers

Corrie Nielsen London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 12 Catwalk Show

Monstermash Fam Irvoll London Fashion Week AW 12/13 Catwalk Show


The invitation alone had me excited to attend this show and I’m happy to say the Monstermash Fam Irvoll London Fashion Week AW 12/13 Catwalk Show did not disappoint.
Opening with the Ghostbusters theme tube the audience were grooving before the models bounced on to the runway comfy looking assembles such as printed leggings, over sizes jumpers,

jumper dresses


puffy skirts


 printed and applique monster motifs there were also some trousers  that looked strangely like pyjama bottoms.

My only disappointment was after hearing the Ghostbusters teamed I was hoping to see some of the characters from the show or other monster cartoon characters from my youth but oh well…
Towards the show some adorable child models strutted their stuff on the catwalk evoking many “Ahhhh’s” from the audience

Also I’m in love with the pastel make up that the models were wearing

Models walking up and down in dresses Antoni and Alison London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter Catwalk Show


'Models walking up and down in dresses' Antoni and Alison Catwalk show review


My first show of the day in fact 'Models walking up and down in dresses' Antoni and Alison Catwalk show opened London fashion week.
Not being too familiar with the brand I wasn’t too sure what to expect but after the resent bouts of cold dreary weather we have experienced in the UK I was more than ready to see some colour.
I did love the tongue in cheek show title
'Models walking up and down in dresses'
(I guess I’m going to be presented with a collection of dresses then)
I arrived at the BFC tents just in time for the show out of breath and tired from running but my day was instantly perked up when I realized that I would be sitting front row
Woop woop
When myself and everybody else was comfort seated the lights went down and we heard a brief explanation about what we were about to see and the inspiration for the collection.
Then the show began


I was quite impressed with the collection of simple printed shift dresses in lengths varying from knee to maxi in beautiful colours.


Actually printed on the dresses were features such as zips, buttons and bow ties




and  very interesting textures such as sequins, glitter, dog tooth fabric,
pleats a creases that you would see if the dress was actually belted or had darts sewn in to it,



 felt tip motifs and many more. There was even tuxedo style dresses with incorporated jackets.

London Fashion Week day two


Day two of London Fashion week and I managed to miss my train again!!
Determined to make to the DAKS Catwalk show (Which I overslept and missed last season) I hustled and made it just in the nick of time to get into the show but had to stand with the photographers (Beggars can’t be choosers).
I have a few hours intill my next show so the plan is to get all of Catwalk reports done that I was unable to finish yesterday and perhaps look around the fashion Galleries

Daks London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2012 Catwalk review

Daks London Fashion Week Show

After seeing the pictures online I was very interested to see what DAKS had to offer for Autumn/winter 13 as I had heard that English heritage is soon to be on its way out (Perhaps not for the English lol)


I was pleased with the collection but not blown away, however it was probably best not to expect anything outrageous or daring from this brand.
Sticking with what I guess is their signature colours DAKs presented a lovely collection of evening and casual dresses and separates and coats obviously aimed at the older consumer

London Fashion Week AW12

London fashion week is off to great start, despite my trying to bundle (without wearing a large coat) up the weather has been unseasonably warm today making my massive snood and long sleeve fingerless gloves not necessary
I set off after waking up in the wee hours to get my train in to London (Which I missed) in order to catch my first my first show of the day
'Models walking up and down in dresses' by Antoni and Alison .
Managed to arrive at the BFC tent just in time no thanks to my missing the earlier train but I was met with a welcome surprise
Front Row Seating Baby!
 
 
Spot my bright orange jeans in the front row?

After the show I met up with my friend and fellow blogger Sherry to sort out my London Fashion Week passes then it was off to MAC to book my make over appointments
As we had a bit of time to spare before the Corrie Nielsen, Vestiarium Scoticum show we popped down to the Charring Cross Hotel to check out the Caribbean London Fashion Week exhibition.
Couldn’t face the walk to the Freemason hall in Covent Garden for the Fam Irvoll show. so we jumped in a cab but was faced with an almost intimidating line upon out arrival :(
As London Fashion week shows often do the Fam Irvoll Monstermash London Fashion Week AW 12/13 Catwalk show started and ended later than expected so it was off in another cab in order to make it to the Bora Aksu show ontime, which didn’t matter as the show was grossly oversubscribed and many people myself included were turned away.
Oh well off I went back to the MAC press lounge where I shot a Vblog on the laptops while Sherry had her make over



I was meant to run back to the Freemason building for the Krystof Strozyna show but decided to give it a miss as I knew i wouldn’t be able to make it in time and two cabs a day would have to be my limit Instead I went back to the MAC press lounge until it was time for my make over.


As always I loved my MAC make over

 I told the Carli La Motte the makeup artist


she could decide on my look and she decided to uses a lovely orange which match the Alexander McQueen jeans I was wearing.

Off I then went MAC goodie bag in hand to the Zoe Jordan show.

On route I bumped in to Kitty Brucknell who looked AMAZING
and posed for a picture for me

After the Zoe Jordan show I then had a three hour gap to fill and was undecided if I should go and meet up with Sherry at her Hotel or go back to Vauxhall Fashion Scout and meet up with my friend Pebbles who is doing the nail designs for all the models taking part in the shows during London Fashion Week.

Unfortunately my decision was soon made for me when my Battery died :(

Being the resourceful type I located a mobile phone recharge station with an empty compartment and jumped on one of the laptops in the press area while I waited for my phone to charge

It is from the press area that I am writing this blog

My last show of the day is Jenna Theo then I’m off home to write up my catwalk reports for Fashions Finest and off to bed.

No after Parties for me

Flat shoes tomorrow a must!!!!!
