How To Dress for London Fashion Week… or not.

What To Wear to London Fashion Week

If you weren’t following my blog last September (why not?) you probably won’t remember ‘London Fashion Blog Week’. I’ve decided to take up the challenge again and write some more London Fashion Week related content. If you are wondering why London specifically, it’s just because I feel like I can relate to it more… I obviously still adore looking at NYFW, and PFW, but for me LFW is my fave. So, just to clarify, my next 4 blog posts will all be LFW related and will be posted every other day 🙂 Today’s post should be taken with a pinch of salt… I’ve always wanted to do a little jokey post, so here is my first ever one…

What To Wear to London Fashion Week

A big question on the minds of every fashion lover and fashion week attendee is, ‘What should I wear?’, so I’ve decided today, to answer that question. Remember what I said at the start of this post… pinch. of. salt.

#1Buy clothes that you would never usually feel comfortable in wearing, to attract as much attention as possible.

#2 – Wear high heels and don’t wear blister plasters because even though you’ll be walking around hours on end, you still want to look stylish and professional.

#3 – Speaking of high heels, find the highest pair you can find. Models are tall after all, so you’ll blend in perfectly.

#4 – Make sure you have one piece of designer clothing on you, even if it’s a fake rip-off. You don’t want to look like you came straight out of Primark.

#5 Don’t carry a camera around with you, otherwise people will think you are the street style snapper. You want to be the one in front of the lens after all, right?

#6 Carry a big bag. You’ll need to be able to have enough room to carry around all the freebies, snacks and drinks you collect. Don’t worry about how heavy it is, count it as a fashionable arm workout.

#7 – If a hat or view-blocking high bun is part of your outfit and look for the day, ignore complaints that people in the row behind you, can’t see. It’s fashion, and they should know that.

#8 – Your outfit should be made up of as many colourful and printed items as possible, this will also help with attracting attention.

#9 – Ditto that for texture (faux fur, mesh, patents etc).

#10 Wear a massive coat, because they’re all the rage at fashion week.

#11 – Distressed jeans are all the rage, so bring a pair of scissors and a mini grater to distress them even more throughout the day… you want to go for that whole ‘naturally distressed’ look (?!!!).

#12 – Cover your face in glitter and sequins or dye your hair neon. You want to look like you just stepped off of the runway…

#13 – …or you can wear super casual clothes; skinny jeans, a boyfriend coat, trainers and a slick back ponytail. Add black out sunglasses for the full ‘model off-duty’ effect.

#14 Bring a change of outfit. You don’t want to be wearing the same thing all day because you’ll never get noticed. Update what you’re wearing as much as possible to stay up-to-date with all the latest happenings.

#15 – So photographers don’t have to ask you for your details, wear a badge with your Instagram, Twitter and Facebook links. You haven’t got time to stop and chat!

#16 – Ignore all of the above because it’s all just rubbish!

like I promise, it’s all rubbish! I hope you enjoyed this haha, just a bit of a laugh but I totally disagree with all of the statements. I just feel like people really go over the top stressing over what to wear. In my opinion, just wear what you want. Don’t feel pressured to dress to a certain ‘level’ just because it’s a special event. Be you, and be comfortable being you 🙂

The Fashion Week Tag

By September 12, 2013 Fashion

Hi hi! (I seriously don’t know how to introduce these posts anymore)… Today I am doing a tag. Oh yes, ‘Tolly-The-No-Tag-Blogger’ is going against all she has said, and making her own?! *gasp* I know. I thought there was one missing, so I decided to YOLO it and create the ultimate, Fashion Week tag. *DUN DUN DUN – dramatic intro*

fashion week tag

Have you ever been to a Fashion Week before?: Unfortunately, no. I’ve been to The Clothes Show Live, but that’s the closest, and I’ve been invited to a LFW Party but, had to decline due to living in France. But um, yeah. Nope. *sob sob*

If you could go to a Fashion Week, which one would you go to and which season?: Ummm… I think probably London just because I am English, but I wouldn’t mind really. For the season, probably Spring & Summer because I’m more of a fan of colourful clothing than dark grung-y stuff, so S/S is my pick!

What designer’s show would you most like to go to?: Although I absolutely love Vivienne Westwood, and it’s one of my dreams to be able to attend her show, I would be really interested in Valentino’s show because after seeing the catwalk pictures, it looks like such an interesting show to attend!

Would you rather be ‘FROW’ (Front Row) or would you rather take the back seat?: Personally, I’d rather go FROW. I know that some people would like to be back seat because of not being intimidated by ‘bigger’ stars (maybe…?), but for me FROW is where I would like to be seated, oh and if possible, can Anna Wintour sit next to me?

If you were able to work at LFW, who would you rather be – A designer, a model, the press, a VIP, or someone backstage?: Well, I think we all know the answer to this one for me 😉 Of course, I would love to be the designer. Just being able to see my designs go down the catwalk sounds so cool!

Sometimes you can get invites to the after ‘part-ays’, but you are only allowed to meet one model, one designer and one VIP/celebrity, in person. Who would you like to meet?: For a model, I know it is very typical, but Cara Delevingne. Apparently Cara is really laid back and just like any other ‘gal’ – sorry, I’m being rather typical and boring today aren’t I? -, so it would be interesting to see exactly what she is like. For a designer, it would of course be the queen herself, Vivienne Westwood. I am ever so jealous of Olivia (from What Olivia Did) for meeting Vivienne whilst she was eating pie, so I am now aiming to meet her in the next few years (…optimistic!). For a VIP, it would probably be… um… I don’t actually know! I guess meeting anyone inspiring would be amazing, so I guess I’d just see who was there, haha!

For your Fashion Week trip, you can take 5 items, for example a camera etc. What would be your essentials?: Like the example, of course my camera for snapping those catwalk pictures and when I meet Cara & Vivienne. A note pad for jotting down information and thoughts on the shows. Lucozade to keep me going, because it is literally a life saver for people who don’t like coffee! A pair of pumps or super comfortable shoes to slip on if my snazzier pair get painful! Plus, some business cards to just remind people of when they meet me 😉

And finally, of course the obvious question. What will you wear?: I definitely think comfort is key. I think perhaps a jumpsuit and then jazz it up with a funky jacket and accessories, and a striking pair of shoes! I definitely don’t think that making yourself stand out is what it’s all about, but maybe something eye catching which suits your personality and is something you would normally wear.
