London Fashion Week Festival 2017


Hey Guys, 

Last week, I was kindly invited by Newby Teas to be a VIP Luxe guest with them at London Fashion Week Festival 2017!
Held at The Store Studios, Strand, this huge bi-annual event ran over four fashion-filled days!


I invited my friend Grace along to spend the day with me! After a couple of pit stops to take pictures, we head to Strand where we were met with a huge LFWF sign! ...


After posing for a mandatory sign-selfie, we head up to explore the shopping areas. There were hundreds of brands and companies exhibiting. I loved being able to shop so many styles all under one roof! 
Instax were on hand taking some candid portraits in front of fun balloon walls, whilst Elle Magazine handed out free copies of their October issue. 
We wondered around until it was time to enter the Luxe Lounge...


"Mother of Pearl" goody-bags in tow, we escaped the bustle of the shopping area to the tranquil refuge of the lounge. 
After a good look through all the incredible goodies (watch my vlog to see what was inside the Mother of Pearl bags) we had some food that was kindly provided...


And of course, washed it down with some Newby Tea!


Next up was the highly interesting and thought -provoking talk with Ashish, in collaboration with Design Forum from River Island. Ashish and host Tasmin Blanchard spoke about his design inspirations, diversity in fashion and future trends. 


And finally it was time for the highlight of the day- the fashion show!
Grace and I took seats in the front row, ready for the ready-to-wear, Trends show. The show was split into three categories, each showcasing a different trend-

1. "Seventies" (a nod to the era with fashionable flares and fro's)
2. "Suiting" (a look at women's tailoring with stylish suits)
3. "Dazzle" (a look ahead to the festive season with dresses ready to rival fireworks!)

Check out my vlog for full coverage of the fashion show!
