1. Which collection were you most excited to see before coming to LFW?
I was most excited about Mulberry and Topshop Unique. And they definitely didn’t disappoint!
2. Was there a key fashion theme running through this year’s LFW?
Prettiness. Pastels made a big appearance again. Particularly at the Daks show I went to, where the models were sporting lots of pretty peach shades. I think soft shapes and textures were a key theme from a lot of shows. The bright florals from Mary Katrantzou were a big hit with me though, combining pretty floral patterns with bright acid colours. Gorgeous!
Texture, texture, and more texture! It’s all about quilted leather, fluffy knits, and metallic accessories this year.
You’ll definitely want to take your camera, but try to limit the rest of the stuff you bring along. By the end of the day my arm was absolutely killing me because I’d insisted on bringing everything but the kitchen sink with me! Another thing I’d say is although you’ll want to document your experience, try to sit back and soak up the atmosphere as much as possible. Of course you’ll want pictures, but I definitely recommend putting the camera down once in a while and seeing it all through your eyes!
Is it just me, or were there some odd celebrities in the frow at some of this year’s shows? I mean, Harry Styles? What does he have to do with fashion?! And as much as I love her, Tanya Burr front row at the Mulberry show? What?! Anyway, I think if I could sit with anyone it would be Kate Moss. She’s such an icon and I just love her!
6. What made you start writing a blog?
I started writing my blog for so many different reasons. I'm an English Lit student so spend a lot of my time reading and writing for that, but I was starting to feel like I don't get a chance to read and write about fun stuff that I'm actually interested in. Creating a blog gave me the chance to do that!
7. Is there any particular celebrity you base your fashion on or would you call your style individual?
I wouldn't say I particularly base my style on any celebrities, because I get inspiration for style from a lot of other places too. My favourite celebrity style is Shenae Grimes though, I love her!
8. What would you say are your biggest challenges as a blog owner?
There are many challenges you face as a blogger, but I’d say the biggest one is coming up with original content and standing out from the crowd. When I started my blog I have no idea there was such a vast amount of fashion bloggers already out there. Finding your own in the big scary world of blogging is very difficult, but rewarding when you feel like you’ve accomplished it.
