London Fashion Weekend: February 2016

It's not my first time at the London Fashion Weekend (you can read about my previous visits here and here), so I knew what to expect. This time I was more relaxed and more chilled than the previous times, when I was stressed to get at the shows on time, to find a seat at the talks and to find time to wonder around the shopping areas. 

This time I knew when and where to go and most importantly I didn't wear my highest heels which made everything more easy. 

First stop: The Veryexclucive Catwalk

In this catwalk, the latest trends are presented: 
Americana where I saw a lot of fridge, denim and suede, Beautiful Botanicals where I saw the floral trend but in a different and more sassy way, Pop Art Brights (my favorite trend) where I saw so many fabulous colors and New Romance where I was a lot of ruffles, pastel colors and lace. Like this lace dress above that I'm in love with.  

Next stop: The Talks

 In this LFWD talk, the editors of Hello Fashion Magazine talk to us, in the most effortless way, about the spring trends. At the end of the session, they announced that they would answer to questions from the audience and they would give a goody bag to the one who they think asked the best question. And I won!!!! How cool is that?? 

Next stop: The Mary Katrantzou catwalk 

With my 2 goody bags in hand (they also give you a goody bag when you enter the venue, you can check below),

I went to sit on the front row for the show I've been waiting for months to watch. 

I love Mary Katrantzou's work. Not because she is a fellow Greek but because she has a one of a kind fashion sense. I'm not a big fan of prints but Mary Katrantzou does it in a way that you never forget. Flowly dresses, sequins that look fashionable and not at all trashy, and the shoes... oh the shoes... Ankle printed boots that I need in my closet! Gorgeous! 

Last stop: Shopping

A girl with my budget couldn't do much in the shopping area but it was nice to browse and I bought some bits and pieces. But I also bought a Zara dress when I left Saatchi Gallery and that counts for something, right? 

Overall I had a lovely time at London Fashion Weekend but I still believe they should move the event back to Somerset House. But we can't have it all... Until next time!
