London Fashion Week fun!

The madness of London Fashion Week has been and gone leaving behind an Autumn/Winter wish list the length of my arm!!

I was lucky enough this season to be invited to quite a few shows but sadly being a busy mum with a hubby that works all hours and it clashing with half term I only managed to get to a few of them. 
Thanks to Lucy at  Katch International on the Friday I got to join the Ongtourage in the Grand Ballroom at the Connaught rooms, this venue truly is beautiful the chandeliers and sheer grandeur set the scene for the Ong-Oaj-Pairam show. This collection was stunning and screamed decadence and luxury! Key influences of Warholesque pop culture lit up the runway as if it were studio 54! Beautiful fabrics from gold velvet to bellowing floaty show stoppers made this show stand out for me. I would have worn the whole collection!!  Here are some of my favourite pieces snapped from the frow:  
                       
                                       
   
                                       
                                         
                                         
                                         
                                         
                                        

Straight after the glamour of the show I had to hot step it onto the underground back to the my friend who was watching my boys, I would pick dinner with the kids over an after party anyday! No champers for me, just a few essentials from M&S instead!! The joys of being a blogging mum!

                         

Day 2 was lots of fun, not just at the shows but wandering round and soaking up the Fashion Week street style in the courtyard of Somerset House. I just love the way people push the boundaries and really express themselves and their own style, London really is great for this. There were some extremely eye-catching ensembles!

The show of today was held at the Fashion Scout showspace within Freemasons Hall, another great Historic London landmark that I have walked past many times but never ventured inside,
Although a ticketed event, the queue was LONG and freezing! When I finally made it into the venue the show didn’t disappoint. This was a four designer showcase called “Ones to Watch” featuring up and coming designers Angel Chen, J Moon, Kim Stevenson and Minju Kim.

My favourite of the four was definitely the London based womenswear brand J Moon who was chosen by Vogue Talents in 2014 as one of 200 emerging designers to watch.
This collection was the closest to my personal style, clean lines but also experimental geometric colour blocking, it worked so well, I LOVED it!

                                 
                                 
                                 
                                 

                                 

               
                

                   Contemplating this little flowery Zara number for a friends wedding in May?

                

I even managed to fit in a spot of shopping and date night with hubby, shattered was a understatement by 1.30am when we rolled in !!

I would love to hear your thoughts on the collections and if you have had any fashion week fun yourselves, I always enjoy reading your comments.
