London Part 1 - LFW

Hi :) (very image heavy post!)

On friday, I was lucky enough to go to London Fashion Weekend at Somerset House. I bought the 'Shop and Catwalk (trend)' ticket. It was so good! I really enjoyed it and it was such a great experience.
First I looked round the 'shop' which was loads of different brands located round somerset house in different rooms. Then at half one I went to the catwalk show presented by Zoe Hardman (who if anyone remembers was in playing it straight haha!)

Unfortunately, (and i really regretted it) I didn't take my DSLR camera with me as I was scared of dropping it/losing it/breaking it/it getting stolen, haha so I only took my little digital camera so the pictures aren't that great :(

The first trend was Graphic Art.

(again sorry for the quality, the models walk so fast and the lighting was so bright, my little digital camera couldn't keep up) 

This trend was full of graphic and geometric prints aswell as neon colours.

The second trend was Urban Lifestyle.

(unsure why they are wearing mustaches! haha)

(yes i realise this picture is rubbish, but they had a bike on the catwalk!)

This trend was full of tailoring, blouses and shirts and my favourite look was a matching blouse and shorts geometric print set (but didn't manage to get a pic - damn those speedy models). 

The third trend was Eastern Promise.

This trend was full of oriental prints and pretty parasols (so tempted to steal one seeing as it was snowing outside).

The final trend - and my favourite of them all - was called Dolls House. It included lots of pretty floaty dresses, floral prints and floral headbands. Pastels, bright pinks and sheer was also a main element.

Definitely wish I'd taken more photos of the first two trends, (plus better ones).

Here's a quick view of where I was sitting, 2nd row woo :)

Finally, as we left, a security guard/bouncer/incharge-y man told everyone to stop walking on the catwalk, so me (left) and my sister (right) took a pic on it because we wanted to be rebels haha.

I have loads more pics but I think I've put up enough pics on this post!

Lessons learnt:
1) if you wear flats, you will look like a midget next to all the people wearing heels (especially if you're 5'4")
2) take your DSLR camera next time jen!

Sorry for how long this was, hope you liked it :)

Did anyone else go to LFW?
