Fashion: London Fashion Weekend 2012

Can you believe I won TWO competitions in the space of a week?! The first was tickets to a show at London Fashion Week, the second was tickets to the shopping event of the year: London Fashion Weekend!

Myself and fellow blogger Pink Julep descended onto Somerset House to find some bargains and hunt out some style inspiration. The event was spread through a huge marquee in the centre of the main quadrant as well as taking over the inside of the beautiful building. The array of shops was vast and ranged from designer labels like Twenty8Twelve and DKNY at knockdown prices, to independent boutiques and vintage shops.

I even got a surprise when I realised the vintage lime green leopard print Ashish tank I was drooling over was being sold by the brilliant and beautiful VV Brown! Wasn’t quite expecting to bump into one of my fashion idols (seriously, when I first saw her perform I was completely besotted with her whole look!), but it turns out she has her own store, VV Vintage!

But it wasn’t just shopping, London Fashion Weekend was about experiencing fashion and discovering style. There was pop-up shops from Benefit, Compeed, Veet and Elizabeth Arden for us to get our beauty fix, and a styling station sponsored by Shop Style UK and featuring top celebrity stylist Rebekah Roy. Both PJ and I found pieces we loved here both of which you can see in the photo below. Pink Julep is wearing a very cute hat, and I replaced my plain black blazer with this amazing patterned and textured jacket from Blank.

 

And of course, to finish off our day of fashion fabulousness we showed the celebs how it was done and had a well deserved glass of champagne.
