I always loved aesthetics. Not particularly fashion, but an idea of beauty.

It’s rarely that being practical is pillar of consideration for when devising your fashion week outfits. Because if you don’t have green, yellow, lilac, rainbow feathers in your hair clashing with an alien mask and crazy cat lady blue eye shadow plus red lipstick (unfortunately I saw it all), you will not command that much attention from the paps. Of course, if you don’t have your picture taken by circus freak hungry photographers, how will you be able to prove you were there at LFW?

I have witnessed a woman sellotaping her face in the restrooms of Somerset House, only to go out and gather herds of photographers and laugh-burst-holding iPhone owners snapping her “look” away. This instance confused me. There was I, thinking I’ll roll up looking my best and go see the shows. I assumed everyone would do the same but surely sellotape-face is not a fashionable, nay safe, look?

Thank goodness there is still fantastic fashion to be seen at LFW both on the catwalk and off. It saddens me though that late Halloweeners hog the photographers on a mission of capturing the wildest freak because a lot of the truly unique and stunning personal style doesn’t get into the papers or street style galleries, thus not in front of the eyes of the masses. That’s how London gets its experimental-edgy notoriety when in reality it’s much more diverse than that. I hope, if you haven’t already, you’ll pop by Somerset House and see exactly what I mean.

  1. That whole circus bit is what puts me off a little. I know fashion is about fantasy, but it also seems about desperation these days. But you are right, there are fantastic shows, amazing designers and a lot to take in! Loved your look very much! x

  2. I believe being unique and extraordinary is totally fine when it comes to fashion week, however, I do not understand why people wear such crazy stuff and do something like that woman you’re talking about? It’s just crazy. I’d love to be able to go to LFW one day in order to see this with my own eyes, hopefully I will!

  3. Love your look! Fab sunglasses! London is a bit crazy in comparison to other fashion capitals, New York was just so cool, Milan is glamourous and Paris is chic while London is quirky…I guess. maybe borderline weird but I find that the best photographers, the ones that you want your pic to be taken by stay away from all the madness and have a good eye for stylish dressers xx

  4. Ugh what you wrote about is so sad, but so true. It’s ridiculous what people wear, and what’s even more ridiculous is that a majority of the ridiculous people aren’t actually going to the shows!

    I’m with you, I just go to enjoy the shows and don’t worry about being snapped. I’d rather maintain my dignity.

    You look amazing as always though. That lipstick is on point!
