Happy Monday loves!
Welcome to my final instalment of London Fashion Week posts. I’m sure you’re all sick of all the non-stop LFW content by now but this is my final post of the season. Truth be told I’ve loved reading all about people’s different experiences of fashion week, the bad and the good! It’s the one time of year bloggers and youtubers from around the globe get to unite and discuss all things fashion!
Day four was a great day for me! I experienced my first ever on-schedule show (Antonio Berardi), I was seated next to some huge influencers. I took some beautiful street-style shots with a very cool photographer and best of all I finally got a chance to relax inside a blogger lounge and get pampered – hair, make-up, nails the full shebang!
Day four was by far the most elaborate outfit I wore. I was given a beautiful lace coat to style from G Hasanova, a talented emerging designer based in London, who specialises in luxury, handmade, bespoke pieces, tailor made just for you.
The upper half was made of black satin, whilst the lower half was made of lace, embroidered with gold floral patterns. A stunning statement piece for any big occasion! I decided to keep my clothes simple by wearing a plain black sheer top from Primark and my comfy Jamie jeans from Topshop. I styled it with classic black accessories, black lace-up heels and my gorgeous Givenchy Antigona.

The Highlight Show of LFW – Antonio Berardi
Firstly, this was the only on-schedule show I managed to attend this season so a huge thank you to The Communications Store for inviting me! There’s a remarkable difference between attending on-schedule and off-schedule shows, the on-schedule shows are very well organised and the guests are actually looked after. Even if you’re waiting in a queue, you’re offered food and drinks and most importantly you’re waiting inside the car park in the warmth.
The show itself was incredible! The designs were a mix between statement suits and dark wearable pieces. My favourites were definitely the colourful, statement 3-piece suits. The fabrics were dip-dyed going from light to dark, with flared trousers, giving a very 70’s inspired look. Many of the designs were heavily embellished with jewels and diamantes, making them perfect for eveningwear.
The make-up was incredibly minimal, a good base of foundation with hardly any added colour. The hair was also simple, left out and straight, tucked behind both ears. Overall an amazing show, which I hope to attend season after season!
These were probably the most wearable designs I saw showcased on day four. The clothes were monochrome (my favourite colour combo), very formal, making them perfect for the office. The designs included a lot belted black and white blazers and long coats. The hair was styled in an elegant low-bun and once again with very minimal make-up.
Vin + Omi
I have to admit that this was the one show I had been the most excited to see! A very highly anticipated show for me since I watched the fashion show online last season and quite frankly it looked absolutely bonkers! This season was a lot tamer compared to the previous but still as unique as ever. The venue was decorated in black paper origami, hanging from the ceiling, which gave it a dark, vampy atmosphere. The designs were as wacky as ever, a lot of long silk gowns with birds scattered all over (the theme of the show). The designs were full of various textures including ruffles and fur.
The stand out pieces were definitely the wigs, bold, bright, colourful Afros. The closing of the show was spectacular with gold medallist Nicola Adams closing the show in style. In summary the Vin + Omi show definitely did not disappoint! A show I will definitely re-visit next season!
