LFW SS16: Fashion Report

Dear readers,

During fashion week don’t be surprised if you witness any of the following things:

  1. A set of really tall (and flawless) girls all wearing skinny jeans and a tank top. Those would be models!
  2. Impeccably dressed people looking like they’re in a movie or something, while you’re just there sat in a corner having your lunch, wearing the first thing you picked out of the closet this morning. They are all likely waiting to attend a fashion show!
  3. Packed hairdresser salons! After all, what’s the point of being all dressed up to the nine’s when you’re hair’s looking like you just got out of bed?
  4. Really..really attractive people. I mean, more than usual. Anyone who lives in London knows there is a mix of people from all over. But during fashion week, somehow, the ratio of good looking people is greatly increased!
  5. Your usual coffee shop near work has a bigger queue than the hair salon you just passed by! You see, during fashion week, everyone involved in a show needs to get up at ridiculous hours, so they end up needing a #CaffeineFix …quite regularly.

Anyway, my point is, during fashion week, London is B-U-S-Y.

However, the hectic environment is totally worth it because at the end of the day, beautiful collections by talented designers have been displayed – and let’s face it, it’s an excuse to wear those eccentric shoes you’ve been dying to showcase! After all, during fashion week, anything goes!

Excited yet?

Good! Keep scrolling to find out my favourite collections and designs from LFW Spring/Summer 2016!
