My London Fashion Weekend Diary

SATURDAY

Towards the end of last year I was contacted about attending  LFW VIP. I jumped at the chance and booked flights and accom that very night.

Our epic journey began at 9 o clock Friday night. We headed down to shannon airport/park inn hotel.

We had an early flight at 6 in the morning over to London Stansted. We checked into the hotel and slept!

We set up a wake up call for 4 o clock in the morning and got ready to head over to the airport! Im reppin my friends band Negativ Result tee.

We got sorted through security daily quick and the airport was deathly quiet!
Swiftly enough, we were on the plane ready to take off!

 While in flight, I got to see a gorgeous sun rise. I couldn’t sleep. I was far to excited for the day ahead!

Finally we landed and went straight to the underground train to take us to London  Liverpool Street Station.
This is a shot Declan took of me once to got off the train!

After a  few hours of shopping, we headed back to the VIP lounge to get ready for the catwalk show!

 

right before the show started Kalee Hewitt (stylist to major celebrities, Music videos, tv presenter) gave a talk on the catwalk trends seen this year, they were:

Flower power
Precious Metals
Sports Luxe
Lace.

Prints are basically going to be everywhere!!

Now, onto the catwalk.

Our flight home was 10:00 Sunday night, so we had the day to fit in as much of London as we could!

Outfit choice was comfy and casual! no makeup and bed hair! haha
We wanted to really explore London by walking around so we made sure we were comfortable for our adventure.
