The Sound of London Fashion Week

With another London Fashion Week behind us and the weekend before us, I’ve put together a few of my favourite songs which I heard on the catwalks.

Listen HERE

DAY TWO

Excuse the lateness of this post! Last night I attended my bff’s housewarming so wasn’t able to get a post up.

First order of the day was Danielle Scutt – lots of velvet, lattice dresses and big bling – including earrings with blonde plaits (check out the last picture).  All jewellery is Danielle Scutt for Topshop – I cannot wait to get my hands on some of that.

Plus I happened to sit right behind Andrea Pfeffer of Robinson Pfeffer who I used to intern for.  It was lovely to see her!

At the Tosha salon show a concise collection of ten LBDs with glorious ruffles made a rather understated statement.

I fell in love with the Elliot J Frieze collection as soon as I read the press release, never mind saw it!  Chocolate and biscuit-coloured corduroy suits and trench dresses.  There was a definite 70’s vibe.  I can safely say I’ve never seen so much cord on the catwalk.  I was overjoyed.  (My pictures just don’t do it justice..)

I managed to pop into Una Burke’s presentation at Vauxhall Fashion Scout.  I interviewed her via email for the new issue of 1883.  Her leather accessories are amazing and she’s always got such a great story as her inspiration.  She’s a real artist.

In the afternoon we went to Topshop to film the ‘Blogging from the Front Row’ workshop with Zoe from Topshop’s Inside-Out blog and Susie Lau.  It was manic at Topshop – obviously, it being a Saturday afternoon n all.  But it was a good talk and very interesting to see ‘backstage’ at Topshop HQ!

Later, I went along to Carlotta Gherzi for Sado, which was surprisingly girlie and summery for an AW collection, and then to Olivia Rubin which took place at Jalouse, a club a stone’s throw from Vogue House.  I am absolutely in love with this collection and hope to get some images to upload here…

P.S. Sorry for no outfit posts – it’s actually been near impossible to meet up with Alessandro so far.  That’s LFW I’m afraid!
