London Fashion Week Festival

On Saturday 24th February my girlfriends and I headed to London Fashion Week Festival at 180 the Strand. It’s something I try and attend every year as I always leave feeling inspired (and with a few less bob in my pockets).

180 the Strand has been the location for the last couple of years and I have to say it is one of my favorite locations as it has such a minimalist warehouse feel to it, which just seems to amplify the designs and colours of the products both on sale and on the catwalk.

We attended the Nicopanda show on our silver tickets for a sports luxe infusion. Whilst not all of the designs were to my taste, aspects of the styling fed my lust for several items, such as berets. The casual glam displayed further inspired me even more so to dress for comfort above all else. Which sadly has become something I’ve become very fond of recently. Gone are the days I purchase items which dig into me here and there in the name of fashion.

London Fashion Week Festival

Last weekend my friend Lucy Hurwood and I, attended the London Fashion Week Festival at The Store Studios, Strand. We purchased tickets for Saturday lunch-time purely to have a mooch around and soak up the atmosphere. As students we opted for the Bronze ticket, which included event access, 150+ brands to shop and Industry Insider Talks (subject to availability). When we went to book on for a couple of talks it transpired that there was an additional fee for these, so ended up not actually attending any. We did figure that we could perhaps book onto some once we were there, but honestly the shopping and photo opportunities were plenty to keep us occupied for a few hours.
