AAaahh…! Back to reality after a week off work and a beautiful weekend in London. Amongst the shopping on Oxford st and the cocktails in Shoreditch I attended the London Fashion Week Festival.
As a lover of fashion I have always followed the catwalk shows and especially London fashion week, so to get the chance to attend a show was a dream come true. My sister and I attended on the saturday as soon as we got there we received our free tote bag designed by Vivienne Westwood we then entered the show space.
Huishan Zhang was the designer whose creations floated down the catwalk. He was born in China and is now London-based. This comes through in his style with an East meets West feel with oriental inspired simple florals ad pearls mixed with a relaxed london vibe with the denim pieces.
There was a real buzz as we entered the space and took our seats. The lights dimmed then shot back on again beaming as the models walked out to soft music. This reflected the soft feminine pieces of the collection including lace, pearls, layers of frills and soft silhouettes. The music then switched up a notch as the more dazzling party piece came out including a beautiful ostrich fur jacket and bright yellow dress. It was really exciting watching the models walk down the catwalk and seeing first hand the detail of luxury fashion pieces.
I would definitely love to go again and think it is well worth the extra to get a seat on the front row for an ultra luxe experience.
