One week after the official part of London Fashion Week had ended, Somerset House opened its doors for the public on the occasion of London Fashion Weekend. Every year, this special event attracts masses of fashion enthusiasts, offering industry talks, catwalk shows and exclusive designer shopping. Something I obviously couldn't miss! To gain access, one does have to pay an entrance fee, which starts at £20 and ends at £130 for the 'Luxe Ticket', securing front row tickets and a welcome reception. My friend and I opted for the more affordable Silver Tickets and ended up seeing two catwalk shows in the showspace, where many other designers had previously shown their collections at LFW. I decided to bring my camera and take pictures of my favourite looks as they came down the runway. The outfits for the first catwalk show were provided by the Outnet and captured this spring's key trends. I was especially happy to observe a rival of the 70s, including flared jeans and fringe jackets - similar to the look that was presented by Burberry Prorsum for autumn/winter 2015/2016. I also loved the monochrome outfits with metallic accents, which are an all time favourite of mine. The second show featured designs by the American brand 'Halston Heritage', which became famous through its classic hat designs worn by many American celebrities such as Jackie Kennedy.
I had such a great time at London Fashion Weekend and would highly recommend it to anyone, who would like to scent some Fashion Week air!
In the spirit of Fashion Week, I decided to have some fun with my own outfit and wore distressed boyfriend jeans by Zara, my new Sandro leopard print brogues, a Kenzo jumper and a vintage faux-fur jacket. I paired the look with my & Other Stories Clutch and a Gap beanie.
