LFW February 2017

Hello my lovelies! This past week or so has been so nice because I was able to be at London Fashion Week and Festival with the beautiful Twenties Ush. I thought I'd do one big post on the whole experience, rather than separate ones just to fill you in on what we got up to!


Day One: Miló Maria AW17 Presentation

What can I say? The presentation was gorgeous. Who knew that PVC could be made elegant? Usually I'm not the biggest fan of the material, but now all I want is one of these jackets. For it's third collection, Miló Maria managed to keep up with the current trends through old, retro influences. The Victorian collars, oversized sleeves, skater skirts and socks with heeled sandals were a combination to die for. I personally loved the setting too; a more intimate presentation in a 50s style women-dominated office. The girl power definitely slayed.

My Look:
Kaftan - Custom (Mumma's design)
Jeans - Zara (similar)
Knee High Boots - Zara (similar)


Day Two: Katie Ann McGuigan for Fashion Scout


A colour explosion. This runway show was rather quick but you definitely couldn't miss the bright tones across the materials and patterns. In contrast to Miló Maria, McGuigan's collection had a futuristic feel to it with it's oversized coats and fuller skirts. My favourite part of the collection had to be the red fishnet socks with red heels, something that I'm definitely going to try out myself. I really loved the array of patterns on each model, keeping the show interesting and contrasting with the older setting of Freemason's Hall. 

My Look:
Blazer - Custom
Lace Cami - H&M (similar)
Shorts - Primark
Shoes - Next
Bag - Gucci (larger version)
Glasses - RayBan (customer to prescription because I am blind)


LFW Festival - Friday 24th February

Maybelline

I think Maybelline was probably the only make-up stand at the festival, but was a definite highlight. As well as making our way into their photobooth, I tried out their Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade "Nude Flush (05)" and I loved it. It was just a beautiful pink and kept my lips feeling nice the whole day. What I really loved though was the neon signs, hence the reason I only have pictures of them.

Brand Outlet
Globe Trotter

Florence Bridge

I think the majority of the festival was dominated by independent designers, all of which had their own unique styles. My personal favourite was Stay Sunny Chicago. I'm sad I didn't get enough good pictures of the items but that's because I was just staring at them. I'm in love with the Valencia gown and dress, which I may splurge on soon. 

Jewellery

The jewellery sections were definitely a highlight. There were so many beautiful collections, some that I'd never heard of, with dainty and bold pieces. My favourites had to be Astrid & Miyu and Matthew Calvin. I loved all their little necklaces and earrings, which I need in my jewellery collection. Accessorize had their own booth and I managed to finally get my hands on one of their star sign necklaces (thank you Ushma). They had their own grab machine, which Ushma got a go on and she won. I've never seen her more excited in her life. She got a cute little bracelet, which is from their current Z for Accessorize range, what a steal.

Photos Galore!


I think we spent the majority of our time in photobooths though. I think every big label had one there and it was fun. I kind of look half dead in some of these, but who cares (I am so tired from uni, you have no idea). 

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and cannot wait for the next LFW (hopefully I'll actually be there again!)

Lots of love, 

Emily xx
