Happy Wednesday guys!
Day two started off very comical! As usual I was running behind schedule (my time management skills definitely needs improving) whilst arranging a meeting point on Twitter to meet up with one of my friends before the show. It wasn’t until I frantically ran out of the house and hopped on the tube, when I realised it wasn’t actually a show but instead a presentation (ditzy duchess strikes again).
Truth be told, day two was my least favourite day of fashion week. Firstly I missed my hair appointment at Boohoo because I was so exhausted I simply couldn’t wake up on time. The weather was incredibly bad with strong cold winds, one of the show’s was over subscribed meaning after waiting an hour in the freezing cold weather I couldn’t get access to the show and to top it all off I missed an amazing presentation by Markus Lupfer! Definitely the most underwhelming day to say the least!
This outfit was actually the outfit I was meant to wear on day one but due to the awful weather I had to postpone it till day two. There’s nothing I love more than a good matching set and this is my favourite one I’ve worn to date. It’s a two-piece monochrome skirt set handmade by G Hasanova. Who’s G Hasanova you ask? She’s a talented emerging designer based in London, who specialises in luxury, handmade, bespoke pieces, tailor made just for you. If you’re looking for a one of a kind, statement piece then look no further.
Out of all my fashion week outfits, this matching set received the most compliments. It received so much love and gave my so much confidence throughout the day.

This was the most beautiful, creative and entertaining show I saw at fashion week. The show opened with two very talented dancers showcasing a contemporary dance performance. A great way to capture the audience’s attention! Once the performance ended, the models entered the runway with colourful, bold printed clothing. As you can see, green was a running theme during this show with various African inspired prints. The designs were feminine, formal and vibrant, perfect for the next spring/summer season!
The first thing I noticed at this show was the dramatic make-up! A very geisha inspired theme with white powdered faces, minimal eyes and bold, dark lips. The designs incorporated a lot of pastels, including pink statement dresses, which I loved.
This has to be the weirdest show I attended hands down! Firstly a lot of the female models were bald (I hope they weren’t forced to shave their heads for the show), secondly a lot of the models were half naked (literally breasts hanging out) and thirdly a lot of the models looked like they needed a good burger. I know models are skinny but jheez these ones looked anorexic! I did enjoy the bold eye make-up and not to mention the fabulous, upbeat soundtrack!
Keep an eye out for Friday’s blog post to see what I got up to on day three!
