London Fashion Weekend
For those of you that Love, Love, Love Fashion and for those of you that don’t know or for some reason don’t care about trends, Fashion Week happens to inspire the fashionista’s out there and showcase designers seasonal collections.
This year the Blondie Media girls, Presenter and Owner Naomi Isted, Head of Marketing Jodie Livermore and Press Officer Joanna Lim headed to London Fashion Weekend last week to get a taste of this coming season’s flavor and obviously Shop till we dropped. As its also a well known fact that most of the designer brands have major discounts on their range.
London Fashion Week SS13 took place 14th-18th September 2012. London Fashion Weekend isn’t available to under 18s unless accompanied by an adult so for the younger fashion lovers out there, make sure you find a fashion conscious relative to bring you. Obviously Fashion Week is for industry only, however those not part of the fashion world can get their slice of shopping and designer collections by attending Fashion Weekend. So for any ladies that missed this season’s London Fashion Weekend be sure to book your tickets
for AW13. Dates for London Fashion Week AW13 are 15th-19th February 2013.
London Fashion Week and London Fashion Weekend are set in the distinctive Somerset House. London Fashion Week is held over 4 days, with over 100 designers and 21 catwalks. An ideal time to watch what’s forecast for the coming season’s trends not just fashion but also hair and makeup styles and tones. Vodafone London Fashion Weekend was PACKED full of very best of British and International Designers.
Style-savvy fashion lovers can get their autumn/winter wardrobe fix from over 100 of the country’s best-loved designer brands from heritage British favourites such as Pringle of Scotland, Jaeger London, Twenty8Twelve and Linda Farrow to some of London’s best emerging designers including Holly Fulton, Sophie Hulme, James Long and Maria Francesca Pepe. Find all your favourite brands selling one-off pieces at reduced prices.
I’m not going to lie I was in Designer Discount Heaven. Tottering around on our heels, myself and the girls shopped for a good 3 hours, thankfully I left the credit card at home or I would’ve been in serious trouble. The catwalk shows were presented by Zoe Hardman, what a fabulous presenter and I’ve got to say I loved her outfit who ever styled her is great at their job.
This years autumn/winter show bag was fab. Designed exclusively for them by Mulberry, this season’s tote bag was cooler than ever and jam-acked with luxury goodies from the big brand fashion & beauty sponsors.
Its not just shopping and shows though, for the Fashion conscious there’s also workshops, talks and chance to be pampered from Beauty treatments and massages to get your hair done.
British fashion brand Aubin & Wills were at the show for the first time with a pop-up shop. Situated just off Seamen’s Hall the shop was stocked with the brands favourite Autumn lines and an exclusive selection of Christmas 12’ collection items, not available anywhere else until November and all with a 15% discount.
If you fancy red carpet treatment girls you need to book the VIP tickets so you get front row seats, you can get involved with the workshops and talks and also meet the presenter but not only that a glass and canapés are on the menu..
Not only is it your ticket to join London’s biggest, most fashion packed weekend, it’s also your chance to rub shoulders with a never-ending list of celebs and an opportunity to enjoy free DJ sets.
Here’s a list of bits I personally bought and love, I think I love them even more because of the lovely discount it makes you fell so much better when you’re a designer loving bargain hunter like Moi!!
