london fashion week AW14



So, London Fashion Week. It feels like ages since I was there when it reality it was only three days ago! Life got in the way of regular attendance this season so unfortunately I was only able to soak up the atmosphere (and the rain) on the cobbled courtyard of Somerset House for one wet and windy day, but what a day it was! 
It all began at 9:30am in THE SAVOY (yes, I actually went to The Savoy) with New Look. The amazing amazing Rhian invited myself and nine other bloggers to breakfast in the hotel, where we were treated to copious amounts of tea, freshly squeezed orange juice, and delicious food. I went for salmon royale because one of my life mantras is never to turn down the opportunity to eat smoked salmon. Like never. I left The Savoy suitably stuffed, having made some new friends in Amy, Naomi and Charnelle, and headed over to Somerset House.
It wasn't long before I had my first show in Freemason's Hall, which was Jamie Wei Huang. She was showing her AW14 Ready-to-Wear collection, and a number of the pieces were right up my street. There were lots of chunky knits, high-necklines and oversized jackets, all in muted pastels or minimalist monochrome with bright accents and asymmetric leather details. My favourite piece was definitely a pastel pink checked jacket with a leather strap on the back, closely followed by an all white biker jacket with a red fur collar and red accents. Sooooo amazing. I didn't manage to get any decent photos, so if you'd like a closer look at the collection then just click here!
After the show I headed into Pret for a quick coffee only to bump into Chelsea of Chelsea Jade Loves, and we spent the rest of the day hanging out with Leigh and Toni. The Napsugar presentation was our first port of call, closely followed by Fashion Scout's 'Ones to Watch' show. It was a riot of colour, embellishment, texture and print, as the four designers showcased four very contrasting collections. You can see a few snapshots from the show above!
So that's pretty much it on the Fashion Week front from me this season! I'm really hoping that next year I'll be able to go to shows on at least two of the days, and maybe do some street-style photography on a third. Thank you to Motel for sending me this gorgeous white faux leather skirt to wear, and thank you to New Look for the amazing breakfast at The Savoy. Here's to next season!
