This year I was fortunate to cover the London Fashion Week. I was kindly invited as Press by Fashions Finest UK to see their designs for SS18 (Spring, Summer 18) and some top designers.

The day started at 2pm at the marvellously impressive De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms. On entry I met the CEO of Fashions Finest Magazine, Deborah St Louis who I must admit was very lovely and well dressed herself with a fabulous necklace and guided me to the main hall area.

In the main hall there were also some pop-up shops and we were given refreshments with AlodrinkUK.

I was ushered with all the media and photographers, which was in a well placed spot, right in front of the fashion show with the best view.

The first of the fashion show featured the following designers:

2 PM
Ocansey Bianchi – UK
Kim Tiziana Rottmueller – Germany Larrit Shoes – Nigeria
Akame – Germany Chico De Barrio – UK

This show was the most ‘unconventional’ – the designs had a modern twist to them with added flair whether on the arms, or with the detailing within the fabrics.

The pictures speak for themselves. Take a look:

Key trends to look out for:

White gowns that are inspired by bridal wear
Ruffles whether on sleeves or on the outfit
Tassles on trousers or leggings
Feathers
Blush pink

The Prince’s Trust shows were outstanding and such a great way for young designers to show their talent and designs.

What trend will you wear?

  1. Congratulations on your press invite. That’s really exciting!

    I love the white gowns trend. I wore all white for the first time last year and am surpirsed I manged not to get it dirty!! Not sure I would be daring enough to try ruffles though.

  2. Well you had me a London Fashion Week! I’m thrilled to see your coverage. I was also invited but I now live in Canada and I couldn’t be in two places at once. I love all fashion week’s but London will always have a special place in my heart because you see more street fashion design and smaller brands that are creating special pieces too!

  3. There are some amazing pieces here!! Its great you were at fashion week to see it all first hand!! I’m loving the different textured created with ruffles etc and the different materials used!
