London Fashion Weekend

So like I said in the last post, I entered a competition to win VIP tickets to London Fashion Weekend on the opening night on thursday and won. This is the first thing I have won in my life. My luck is actually not that bad! Went down with my sister since it was just too much of a journey for Fikki to make. The event is a fashion and designer shopping experience where the public have the chance to buy from some of their favourite labels at discounted prices. It reminded me of going to an exhibition, only you get to buy whatever you liked. Apart from the shopping experience, there are also catwalk shows and various talks for the public to attend.

Dress/River Island; Jacket/Levi's (Charity Shop); Boots/So You Shoes


my sister: Top and Waxed Jeans/New Look; Flats/Dorothy Perkins

Spent the first hour or so looking around all the different shops set up in Somerset house from Maison Martin Margiela to Chowshed and everything else in-between. The discounts were actually good enough for the pubic to want to spend their money. The shoe lounge in particular impressed me especially the range of Finsk shoes they had. They were flying off the shelves! I really wanted a particular House of Holland t shirt at £20 but i'm so indecisive so I left it. As part of the package, we also got a goodie bag which was okay. It included Elizabeth Arden face cream, Label M haircare and a pair of knickers from Triumph. 





 Met Sandra from 5 inch and up who was showing her collection for Nelly. She is so so lovely and the collection is gorgeous. I'm very close to buying the Cross Shoes  with the discount I have for Nelly.


Then we listened to a hair, beauty and make up masterclass with reps from Toni & Guy, Elizabeth Arden and Benefit.



And finally a catwalk show showcasing AW12 trends with live music from Tulisa.
After seeing a post by Ag on her blog Zelda and Festus, I really fell in love with everything Kat Maconie. Those heels are just amazing. And you can buy her shoes on asos!


Overall. although I didn't end up buying anything (still kicking myself), it was a much welcomed nice and free night out for me.
