LFW Day Three

Sunday at Fashion week was a bit of rush!

It involved a couple of quick changes, marching around in spindle-like heels and battling through traffic jams.

It all started, as with most London adventures; at the tube station with a coffee.

But this wasn’t just any old tube platform.

Welcome to Preen’s AW15 show…

You step onto the escalator and glide down, deep underground.

The platform stretches out in front of you.

Twisting seductively around a corner, leaving you wondering what’s down there.

We took our seats and waited for the show to begin.

Excitedly chatting about our respective LFW experiences and plans for the next few days.

I think Fashion Week has a very unfair reputation of being bitchy, cold and unfriendly.

I’ve found it to be quite the opposite!

I’ve met some lovely people, caught up with old friends and made a handful of new ones. Never mind all of the mind-blowing fashion on show, the social side is a hoot!

And as soon as the shows start, everyone has the same reaction…

So pleased that shearling will be making another appearance next Autumn!

I am all over this cosy new 70’s vibe that seems to be spreading like wildfire.

Especially when thick, heavy sheepskin’s paired with sheer silks and opulent embroidery.

After the show we whooped, cheered, clapped and raced away.

Ready for a quick, Superman style change before the Williamson show.

I picked up my bits and bobs and drove through the streets of London feeling like Charlie on his way to the Chocolate Factory.

I arrived to find a scrum of street style snappers.

And thankfully Rosanna popped up at just the right time, and joined me in the whirlwind!

There was a helluva crowd surrounding the venue, all clamouring to glimpse a view of what was going on inside.

And it was certainly worth it!

Just look at this decor…

Like stepping in to Matthew’s personal trinket box.

Music started, the lights came up, models streamed down through the arches… and my camera freaked out.

It utterly refused to work properly, so I’m afraid I totally failed you when it comes to giving you a run through the collection.

Thankfully there were some real pros on hand, so I can still share!

Dreamy silk jumpsuits.

Fluttering satins and dizzying prints.

More shearling than I could ever have hoped for!

^ Obsessed with this galaxy skirt.

I’m pretty sure I can find space for it in my wardrobe…

The entire room remained spellbound by the entire collection.

Showstopper after showstopper poured out from behind the curtain and glided along the runway.

But this! This is my favourite piece…

All hail King Matthew!

No-one does it quite like he does.
