Hearted teddy bear

By March 4, 2014 OUTFITS 1

hearts13

I couldn’t say much more of this outfit, other than how cosy I felt with this big warm jumper. Embracing the monochrome and the hearts, this was very much the option for a freezing yet sunny London day during fashion week. The big plastic fantastic yellow necklace from last year’s spring season added the bright touch to the all black & white look… Oh yeah, my mom, joined the love too!

LONDON FASHION WEEKEND: ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL FASHIONISTAS

By February 24, 2014 DATE WITH MUM, Events, LFW

somerset-house-fashion

Another London Fashion Weekend to talk about… I’ve been attending practically every year.

Taking place at the iconic building of Somerset House, right after the autumn/winter 2014 shows and presentations, the the accessible event for all those Londoners that fancy getting in the hectic atmosphere of London Fashion Week took over. Not only that, you can shop designers clothes, shoes and jewellery for great prices (eg. French Sole ballerinas, usually at a price around £180, were all at £65), enjoy beauty treatments, seat on the front row of the catwalk that presents the trends of the current season (spring/summer 2014) and best of all, you can have a girly date, with a glass of champagne in hand, with your girlfriends. I went with my partner in crime of the blog, my mom, who wore an extra cool sweatshirt (see similars here)!

Anyhow, we of course jump in for any photobooth, so we did at Maybelline’s space wearing some of their senseless accessories, and then jumped in the Canon 360 studio, an uber cool spot where you can see your shot 360 degrees, see below to understand what I mean! You might wonder ‘how is this accesible to me?’. Well, tickets are available to purchase from their website and the price range varies depending on what you want (only shopping, shopping + catwalk, or shopping + catwalk + goodie bag). Alternatively, you could be the lucky one that wins tickets, like my reader Katherine, who was the winner of the giveaway on my blog I ran in association with one of the event’s sponsor, Amex.  Check out my previous LFWeekend experiences HERE.

Next season (September 2014), spoil yourself and plan a date with friends to London Fashion Weekend… You will enjoy it to the full!

Meanwhile, watch an exclusive video produced by Amex for FashionInsideOut with British TV Presenter and BBC Radio DJ Lauren Laverne, who brings you a sneak peek from behind the scenes, revealing the fashion trends that will dominate the high street in the coming months and finding out how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe. Enjoy!

Video: Wrapping London Fashion Week SS14

By September 25, 2013 Designers, Events, LFW

Yep, it’s a wrap for London Fashion Week shows in here. Looking at the videos I had under my sleeve, I thought it would be nice to put something together for this season in less than two minutes. Please play the video below to watch a bit of the shows’ finale, backstage excitement and the whole atmosphere during London Fashion Week at Somerset House, which for those out of London, is the usual venue (a Neoclassical building in front of Embankment) that embraces the fashion week in the British capital. Until next season LFW!

Viendo los videos que tenía debajo de la manga, pensé en hacer un video que resumiera mis dias en el London Fashion Week (LFW) Otono/Invierno 14 en menos de dos minutos. Click play al video para entreterte un poco con el finale de algunos shows, la emoción tras bastidores y la atmósfera durante esos dias en Somerset House, que para quienes estan fuera de Londres, es el hermoso establecimiento (un edificio neoclásico) que durante anos ha acogido la semana de la moda en la capital. Hasta la próxima temporada LFW!

KTZ SS14: A hardcore collection

By September 23, 2013 Designers, Events, LFW

I’m not sure how exactly I would describe this collection, but there are four things that highlights KTZ spring/summer 14 show during London Fashion Week: Rainwear (quite a depressing weather prediction for next summer, yet realistic), headwraps and veils that made reference to “cultures that use clothing as markers of social and religious difference,” statement jewellery of oversize studs and embellishment, and prints of florals and Islamic mosaics.

After coming to their autumn/winter 13-14 show (see it here), I wasn’t expecting any different or more wearable from Kokon To Zai. It has a strong personality influenced by the background of the label (music, the 80s and travels). However, I was quite surprised this time by few of the garments, which I could totally see myself wearing, plus it’s great to come and see something totally different during fashion week. It has without a doubt, a completely different target and intention. And they did achieve it this season by getting into the controversial subject of religion and by adding some serious studs and unique headgear (which I found particularly cool).

Jena Theo: Smiley face!

By February 21, 2013 Designers, Events, Vogue

I remember the last time I fully enjoyed a presentation in the Portico Room of Somerset House…. It was the amazing London Fashion Week debut of Sophie Hulme.

This season, at the same room, I was introduced to the iconic Smiley face of Jena Theo, whom presented a collection of abstract prints, oversized jackets and skirts that looked demure on the front but as the model turned around, it surprised revealing more skin. Bright colours were part of the whole show, not only on the collection, but on the model’s lipstick that came out in group at once with an attitude that dared you to look at what were they wearing, they meant to look secure women. As they say, their ideal client is “confident and daring, she loves to wear clothes that show she is unconventional and powerful”… Together, Jenny Holmes and Dimitris Theocharidis achieved a fun and colourful collection introducing the trademark of the season “soft-structured, geometric winter coat”. Now… Smile!!!
