Frankfurt Style Awards: Young Design Talents

Frankfurt Style Awards 2014

A lot of my posts have been about UK designers and London Fashion Week lately, so I’m excited to also share a post about an event I attended in Germany, called The FrankfurtStyle Awards. The event was all about showcasing new international designers and was held at the Frankfurt airport. The event was the big finale of a design competition, where design students from all over the world where competing to be picked to showcase their looks in front of a well renowned audience in Frankfurt. The runwayshow showcasing the finalist’s designs was as diverse as it could possibly be, from fantastic and innovative looks that were really well made to ones that were not so mind blowing and rather questionable. To say that there was a to talk about at this event  is definitely an understatement, so I hope you enjoy seeing what young designers come up with as much as I did!

How I Got to The Topshop Unique SS15 Runway Show and Met Anna Wintour

Topshop Unique SS15 Front Row

In my last post you saw what I wore on Day 3 of LFW and to the Topshop Unique, so this post is going to be all about my experience at the Topshop show. Normally when reviewing a runway show I would mainly focus on the clothing and designs itself as that’s really what it should be about. However due to the fact that the Topshop show is one of the shows that is reported about the most, I feel like you probably have seen the looks already and maybe also interested in hearing how I got there and how the experience was. So let’s start from the beginning.

London Fashion Week Outfit Day 3 and Hope ST Magazine Party

LFW Street Style Outfit Print Blazer

Here is my London Fashion Week Outfit on Day 3, which was one of the best days of LFW, simply for the fact that I was able to go to the Topshop Unique SS15 show that day! Honestly if I would have known that I will be standing opposite of Anna Wintour that day, I would have probably picked a more extravagant look, but when I got dressed I had no clue that I would be at one of the important shows of LFW just a few hours later. I will tell you more about the show and how I got one of those more than popular tickets in my next post, but for now let's look at what I wore, when I saw Anna Wintour for the first time.

London Fashion Week Outfit Day 2 and Bernhard Chandran Runway Pictures

Here is my LFW Day 2 Outfit, as you can see I went for an outfit completely in pastel colours. When I arrived in London I actually run from one Boots to the next, to find Bleach London non-permanent hair dye in purple. I read about Bleach London before and thought it would be perfect for LFW, to give my hair an out of the ordinary look. I wasn't sure how the colour would turn out, so it was a bit of a risk to dye my hair the day before fashion week. I don't know about you but I totally love my purple hair in combination with the pastel outfit and I feet like it gave me a bit of an edge. 

Jean-Pierre Braganza SS15 Collection at LFW

 I probably told you guys a thousand times that I totally love prints and totally love monochrome that’s more than clear now. What I haven’t realized until I saw Jean-Pierre Braganza’s new collection is that I also adore geometric shapes, sharp edges and deconstructed tailoring. For example I have a blazer with a black and white geometrical print on it and super sharp shoulders that falls really fluidly in the front (Maybe you've seen it in this outfit post). I could see the blazer coming down the runway of the Braganza show and that is probably one of the reason why I felt really connected to the designs and literally want to own every piece of the collection. 

Oang-Oaj Pairam SS15 Collection at London Fashion Week

Following a designer throughout several seasons really allows you to understand their signature and aesthetic much more and gives you the opportunity to see many facets of the creativity of a designer. In February I showed you Oang-Oaj Pairams AW14 collection, so I’m excited to show you his Spring Summer collection now, as I feel you need to at least see two collections of a designer, to start knowing and understanding their creations.

Jamie Wei Huang SS15 at London Fashion Week Collection Review

Jamie Wei Huang SS15 collection LFW

As I mentioned in my last LFW post, I really enjoyed the Jamie Wei Huang SS15 Runway show. It was one of the first shows I went to during fashion week, it was a smooth-running show, with a short wait and amazing seats so it was a relaxed, nice start to LFW. Just judging by the first pictures, you can already tell that the collection featured great fabrics a feminine, yet vibrant colour palette and cuts that play with masculine and feminine elements.
