Shopaholics and fashionista embrace yourselves, LONDON FASHION WEEK-END is here.
Hosted in the fabulous Somerset House, from the 18th to 21st of September, London Fashion Week-End is going to be all about fashion, style, beauty and lots of fun. To me this is the time for dressing up and enjoy a day or evening out with my best friends while sipping Prosecco and getting special tips in styling, make-up or hair. In fact the event feature not only the latest trends but also famous British brands, all around the globe designers, shopping, great styling tips from catwalk shows, super tempting pop-up shops and all that hair & beauty treats, without mentioning those very useful educational panels from leading industry experts. To me London Fashion Week-End is a ritual that goes like this: first must put my hands on the gorgeous tote bag, this year has been designed by the fantastic Lulu Guinness, to celebrate her fabulous 25 years in the handbags making business. Next is a quick and priceless stop at the Lavazza stand, for a must have fuel-me-up espresso fix, where you can also try the super cute “A Modo Mio” coffee machines.
This is just enough to keep me going all the way to the catwalks: The TREND Catwalk, styled by www.theoutnet.com , is home to over 250 of the most wanted designer brands worldwide, including its own brand IRIS & ink. The show includes outfits from designer such as Roland Mouret, Peter Pilotto, Diane von Furstenberg and more. The other fantastic show is the DESIGNER Catwalk: There are four designers to choose from, each showing their seasonal collections. Each show will feature just one designer, lasting approximately 30 minutes! This week the designers Catwalk shows will include: Amanda Wakeley, Nicholas Oakwell Couture and Notte by Marchesa and Fyodor Golan.
After the show is time to rich for a glass of Prosecco at the Scavi & Ray bar before heading for a quick lips and hair fix at the fantastic Maybelline and Tony & Guy stand: there is no better place to get your latest trends in colours, products and styles. If all this sound a little too hectic, the massage and manicure lounge will take care to bring back strength for the ultimate fashion shopping: Paper London, Pringle, Muubaa, French Sole, Ducie, Candy, Baker and Peridot and many more…
