A Day At London Fashion Weekend

by - 19:26

Yesterday, Zoe and I spent the day at London Fashion Weekend - an event following London Fashion Week to showcase the very best of London fashion, filled with industry talks, designer collections and of course, catwalk shows.

Before we headed to the Saatchi Gallery, we stopped off in the renowned Bluebird cafe in Chelsea for a spot of lunch.

BBQ Korean Chicken Salad  was to die for! I highly recommend. 

We wandered down the streets of Chelsea, admiring our surroundings and soaking in the days sun. 

Jumper and Shoes - Zara; Shirt - H&M; Jeans - Topshop; Bag - Asos
And made our way back to Sloane Square to look around some of the shops.  Whilst having a bit of a stroll, we arrived upon one of my favourite designers currently - Joseph.  Simplistic, structured and minimal defines this collection, and I fell in love.

We eventually made our way in to the gallery and immersed ourselves in to the surrounding collections being showcased. 

Just a few of the designers who were there.

We picked up a designer tote bag full of goodies and took our seats to hear Henry Hollands industry talk. 

Daisy Lowe interviewing Henry Holland. They were both sooo lovely!
We ended the event with our special front row seats at the trend show which focused on 4 key trends this season - Animal print, Shades of Marsala (I mentioned this colour in my last post), The 70s and Rock n' Roll Chic.  All the pieces modelled are available on Very, so if you spot anything you like, you now know where to get them...  you're welcome!

Adding a touch of animal print on a pair of shoes or bag is a good way of incorporating the trend in to an outfit if like me, animal print isn't for you. 

Shades of Marsala - an earthy wine red.

This was my favorite piece, absolutely love this denim on denim look! It has definite '70s vibes.

Another favorite of mine

After an amazing but long day, we hopped on to the tube and ventured out (severely out of breath after walking up the 193 steps at the station) in to the bustling night life of Camden Market.

We then hobbled to Leicester Square to end our night with a refreshing drink and a slice of cake.

My verdict on the day? Truly unforgettable.
