LFW Round Up by Grace Jones

22 September 2014


Due to work commitments and a festival or two I was unable to attend LFW this season. So gutted as I particularly love the SS collections. However my dear friend and budding journalist was more than happy to help me out and attend on my behalf.

Day 1. Friday 12th September 

My insane rush and dash to LFW started out at Somerset House to watch Jean-Pierre Braganza present his Architectonic collection. However I was slightly late and it quickly came to my attention that LFW & Lateness doesn't go together.

Check out some of the images from the collection below.








I picked up my frown, opened my eyes and realised I wasn’t late at all because all the remarkable fashion and faux pas were right in front of me and I had ample time before the next show to actually soak up and shoot the surreal atmosphere of Somerset House.

Not admitting defeat but looking at the time which is was only 4pm I strolled over to the ME Hotel for a for a glass of Pino Noir and to my surprise I am escorted into the MEdia Lounge which was strictly for press officials for the Phannatiq Parkour Presentation which started 6pm just my luck as Paul Costello starts at 5.30 across the road… Damn!!!

Downing my glasses in record time I look up and see the boys from Rough Copy so I head over and get a few snaps.
Joseph and Kazeem, two out of three aint bad!!


My day is starting to look up as one of my girl friends slips into the chaos, then it becomes drinks on the roof, celeb spotting, the fashion hit and misses but not before I bump into Tomasz Donocik Awarding winner hand-made jewellery designer.


I’m jotting down notes in my lil' pad, snapping up the atmosphere and sipping on Pinot Noir - this is the life and its becoming more and more apparent that the 60’s and 70’s are back in full effect. Long slender cuts, police sunglasses, extra-long lashes, long over coats low-rise pockets, bold mixing of colours mixed in with a more recent urban shabby chic grunge look and and I to say I’m loving it!

I’m keeping an eye on the time as the social butterfly is coming out of me glass by glass.
The mayhem along the Strand was ridiculous and I was not going to be late for the Paul Costelloe Show so with a heavy heart I leave the buzzing atmosphere of the MEdia Lounge and compose myself and head across the road. As luck would have it again I was magically rushed through the crowd and given a prime spot!





The show was amazing, my thoughts on the roof top were confirmed.

Day 2. Saturday 13th September

#Fashionforpeace

I’m hanging. The sunglasses are on and London Transport have decided they really want to test my patients today... major works everywhere… GREAT!! 
The closest I can get is Charing Cross so I begin the long walk to Soho trying my best to not think about the banging headache I have and how fast my legs are trying to carry me across town. 
I arrive at Fashion Scout Freemason Hall and I'm wondering why it's so quiet. 
I make my way through the guided hall and BANG the atmosphere hits me the headache goes and its lights, camera, action!
This is what I’ve clearly been waiting for the glitz, the glam, the chic and the damn right outrageous!  The lights dim and we’re in complete darkness, the show begins lil ole me is fighting for a space alongside the other bloggers, newspapers, magazines and photographer’s its crazy but I’m loving every minute of it.
