LFW Day 1

25 February 2015

Apologies for my late post as LFW has now ended.. *Sad Face*.
I've had a nightmare with my laptop. 
My work laptop is getting fixed and the trackpad on my personal laptop has decided to give in which makes it hard to edit pictures. Luckily I have an external mouse...

Anyhoo I'm back on form now and lucky for you guys I finally can give you the scoop on Day 1 at LFW.

I dragged Mani along because he's never been and he's really into Fashion. Plus he's a great photographer so it saves me having to take pictures at the shows - I can just sit back and enjoy!

Our first show of the day was Jamie Wei Huang at Fashion Scout. I've been following her for a while now ever since Lady Gaga stepped out in a white two piece ensemble in 2013. So you can imagine my excitement to be invited to her AW15 collection.

Jamie stayed true to the AW colour palette by adding touches of leather and fur. Her collection was almost grunge with a touch of sexuality...

"The collection sets aside society’s expectations of women, and emphasizes their buried desires and fantasies with elegance and subtlety. ‘Nymphomaniac’ uses metaphors, to unravel the struggles the main character experienced while contradicting society’s viewpoints on love, sex and pain. Eventually coming to peace with her subconscious and embracing her true being."

One of her pieces that had me frothing from the mouth was the oversized red shearling biker jacket. Definitely something I could see myself in this A/W.

The second show of the day was James Kelly's Merit Award at Fashion Scout.
I saw a lot of oversized trench and bomber coats personified as dresses which was very cool. 

We were scheduled to see the Amber Asham show as well as the Portugal Fashion show at Fashion Scout however Amber Asham was over capacity and to be honest after all that waiting I couldn't be asked to stick around.

Day 2 at LFW I fell sick so I had to give it a miss. 
Such shame as I was supposed to attend: 
Asli Polat, HEMYCA, Apujan, Pavane, Mimi Tran, Soojin Lee and Zapnep.
Next season hopefully!

Look out for Day 5 at LFW!

Did you attend any shows?
