After becoming luggage free, we headed to the cute camper van to claim our wristbands, shortly after we indulged in our free cocktail a chambord champagne cocktail. In the marquee there were stalls of jewelry, scarfs, bags and make-up and beauty stands. After exploring the stalls, which personally I felt were a bit out of my price range as nothing “poped” out at me we headed to our 4:30 catwalk show.
I thoroughly enjoyed the fashion shows, the lovely Grace Woodward introduced the show as glamorous as ever! We were sat two seats away from the catwalk “entrance” about half a meter away from where Naomi campbell had opened Toni and Guys hair show a few days previous…although the catwalk wasn’t raised which me and Emz thought it would be.
We had been up for around 10 hours by this point and where beginning to run out of energy and unfortunately found the main stalls within the last 30 minutes leaving us a bit rushed for time. I think had we have gone one of the previous days or at least stayed in a hotel the night before we would have enjoyed ourselves more and had more of an opportunity to browse the stalls.
We also received a free goodie bag designed by David Koma :
This included: Kleenex cleansing wipes - which I received two of instead of fake eyelashes and a rocky road GU bar (I have no clue why hah) Kleenex tissues, Karl Lagerfeld diet coke, Johnson's baby oil, Lavazza coffee and Label.m salt spray.
At 6pm London fashion weekend finally came to a close and we decided to head over to Foundation bar for a sneaky cocktail on the way back to Kings cross. In need of food we ventured to Nandos round the corner from the station in order to feed the demands our stomachs were making. Then it was time to head home...I always hate leaving London, in a way it feels like home although I have no idea why.
Overall views, I would say it is worth going to London fashion weekend, it is perhaps the only experience even close to London fashion week. But if like us you're not within traveling distance book a hotel! no-one likes traveling for nearly 8 hours! I would also suggest getting there in plenty of time, we assumed arriving at just after 2 would give us plenty of time but trust me it really, really didn't. Finally SAVE, SAVE, SAVE although there are discounts up to 70% off the best things really were expensive.
Hope all is well!
