I finally had the time to sit down and digest all of London Fashion Week to share with you! My first time covering LFW officially for Mouthful of Style was such a great experience. I have worked fashion shows and backstage many times in my career in the industry and now covering them as well as a fashion blogger adds even more to my overall experience. For one thing, I was able to see and appreciate the full production of the shows from start to finish. When you work a show these parts can get overlooked as you are dashing around to make sure all is in place when the clock hits time. That being said, below are my favorite show looks of the week and a few pictures I snapped from backstage and the runways. Enjoy!
I've definitely been running around London over the past few days, but in a good way! London Fashion Week premiered at 10am on Friday at Somerset House with Zoe Jordan sponsored by Vestiaire Collective and I got the best view from front and center first row! Having heard of the designer but not too familiar with her work, I am now a follower and fan! The show was a mix of some of my favorite styles and trends: matchy-matchy tops and trousers, structured jackets, silk mixed with rougher fabrics and fun pops of color. An extremely wearable collection staying consistent to Zoe's signature style she describes as "feminine swagger." Ah, don't you even just love that description!
The second ever London Fashion Week for men's collections ended yesterday. The city is still buzzing from the shows and my picks of the best looks are above. First impression: Baggy pants ruled the runway. A mix of classic British elegance with double-breasted jackets as seen at E.Tautz and modern street style at Christopher Raeburn were my favorites. Tomorrow I am off to Milan for Milan Fashion Week. More men's show coverage to come.
