I don’t know how some women do it. Running around in high heels from one show to the other. Do they not know pain? Do they secretly change their heels for sneakers in between shows? Do they have some kind of super pill I don’t know about?
Because if so, can I get in on it?
You may have already seen some of my London Fashion Week photos here. I was going to try and describe how London Fashion Week was for me those first days, but I just couldn’t get myself to write anything that night. That’s how London Fashion Week is. You’re running from one place to the other. You’re constantly on-the-go. And when you’re finally home, late, you are still kind of processing what has happened.
Some of my London Fashion Week highlights: Edeline Lee’s sleek pastel-coloured collection, Vielma’s 60’s/70’s vibe, Manuel Facchini’s cut-out dresses, Omer Asim’s gorgeously toned-down art direction, Steven Tai’s quirky back-to-school dresses, Three Floor’s blue halter dress (want!), Georgia Hardinge’s entire collection (and how perfect it would be in my closet), Aspinal of London high tea, the goodie bags (!), a sneak peek at the Louis Vuitton Series 3 exhibition, getting pampered at The Apartment by the ladies of Jurlique, Essie, Youngblood and Lookfantastic, lunch time with KFC at The Apartment, breakfast and sweets by Aubaine at The Apartment, meeting the oh-so humble Noor from Queen of Jetlags at The Apartment, having a starstruck interaction with Shini from Park&Cube, admiring Toni Tran from Fashitects from afar, meeting the inspiring Abi from The Apartment and meeting so many other inspiring digital influencers.
London Fashion Week was a wonderful experience. And even though it felt like running for a marathon at times, it was certainly my marathon to run.
In this post, in this order: Edeline Lee, Vielma, Manuel Facchini, Omer Asim, Steven Tai, Three Floor, Georgia Hardinge, Aspinal of London, Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition, The Apartment.
