I want to share some more Fashion Week pictures with you, because the Huishan Zhang presentation was one of my favourite events of LFW, not just because of the beautiful designs, but also because it was the most relaxed and classy event I went to. It took place in the Mirror Room of the Rosewood Hotel in High Holborn, so imagine being led into a stunning room full of mirrors and vintage comfy furniture, where you are greeted with a lovely afternoon tea. They served tea and champagne before the runway show started which is probably my new favourite combination of drinks even thought it sounds a bit odd. After enjoying some yummy sandwiches and pastries and getting a bit of a rest, the runway show started.
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!
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.
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.
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.
