September London Fashion Weekend

Hi everyone!

Last week I was lucky enough to go to London Fashion Weekend at the Saatchi Gallery in Sloane Square. I had never been to the Saatchi Gallery before but thought it was a good location apart from when it got quite crowded inside!

As we bought Gold Tickets we were able to see two catwalk shows, one design and the other trend.

The first catwalk we saw was the trend show, where the trends for spring/summer 2016 were displayed by pieces by different designers. The first trend was animal prints. I think a plain outfit with a animal print piece of clothing can look really cool and sophisticated so I'm definitely on board with this and am looking forward to searching for some animal prints in the high street shops.

The next trend was red whether that's crimson or maroon. 

I loved how they presented this trend in so many ways, like the picture above where the model is wearing a leather jacket and hat.

The outfit above is one of my favourites from this trend. At first I thought I would hate an all red outfit but I thought the above pieces were put together so well and I thought that all the different shades complemented each other.

Although it wasn't part of the trend I love the sunglasses the above model is wearing and am currently on the hunt for some similar!

Suede is one of my favourite things at the moment whether it's a skirt or a dress. I am in love with this trend and can't wait to suede up my spring/summer '16!

Between shows we wondered around the different rooms and had a look at all the collections. This was so fun and we had a great time in Sunglasses Hut, trying on all the different glasses. Although we didn't buy any, we made up for it in Maybelline where we indulged and hopefully I will be putting up a post soon, incorporating some of the products.

The design show we saw was by Christopher Raeburn. This was a great collection, inspired by the theme of water and the ocean.

The thing I loved about this question was that he included pops of colour with the orange which really brightened up the catwalk.

Something which Christopher is famous for is using old materials to create an item out of. I thought this was a really cool aspect of his designs as I've never seen any other designers do this before.

The finale was really fun to watch and it was great to see all the designs next to each other.

I was so sad that it was our last show but I loved watching both of them and am so glad we got to see them!

The whole day was amazing and the icing on the cake (or should I say the cream on the scone...) was having a cream tea lunch afterwards! 

London Fashion Weekend is always so much fun and now I'm so excited for the next one!
