London Fashion Weekend


If i've learnt anything over the past few days, its definitely that I need to enter more competitions! I won two competitions that Very.co.uk hosted on twitter last year and on Tuesday, I found out I had won my first one of 2016 which was the chance to go to London Fashion Weekend = every fashion lovers dream.

I have never attended fashion week (or weekend) before so having the chance to go on Saturday for the first time was nothing short of amazing. I went along with my sister, Megan and we had the best day ever! As two fashionistas we were living the dream being surrounded by beautiful clothes, makeup, hair products and more beautiful clothes!

We set off at one and caught the train into town. After having a spot of lunch we made our way
to the Saatchi Gallery. There was a range of gallery rooms with collections by different designers including Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen and Burberry. Two words: Fashion heaven!




Although LFW is mainly about clothes, style and fashion, beauty stills plays a big part in the fashion industry. Maybelline was one of the beauty brands that attended LFW this season. They were offering makeovers and even had a photobooth where you could put on your best model pose - obviously we had to have a go! I bought a few products from the makeup stand as Maybelline is by far one of my favourite high street affordable makeup brands.


The LFW trend show was partnered with Very Exclusive (an online shopping destination) and brought the key trends of SS16 to the catwalk. The trends that were showcased included Americana, Beautiful Botanicals, Pop Art Brights and New Romance.

Americana

This trend was dominated by bold stars and stripes in the USA colours red, white and blue.

Beautiful Botanicals

This trend is bringing floral prints back in a big way for the upcoming season.

Pop Art Brights

This trend saw the models dressed head-to-toe in bold colour and this also included the makeup - bold eye and lip looks.

New Romance

This trend will see us embrace our inner romance with delicate feminine looks in the prettiest of pastel shades. This is the trends of ruffles, lace and silk.



How pretty is the rose gold satchel on the top row next to the trainers!?!

What a fantastic day. Having had my first taste of LFW, I am definitely hoping to attend in September!
