London Fashion Weekend, Somerset House


and so it starts; bubbles and chit chat


lovely candy colours for long days in the office


a nail polish vending machine? well, it did work...for Vodafone customers! 


a touch of luxe for the winter months to come - love! 


Great Gatsby look is here to stay!

Move over New York FW! We have style, culture and architecture to show for! 



I still remember my very first LFWEnd back in 2003, in a small marquee at Duke of York's Headquarters, off King's road. Newly out of university, so proud to be making a living in London, feeling all grown up and yet...giggling with my best friend at a cafĂ©, going over the details of the night out before, with our £5 LFWEnd tickets at hand! I remember more of a hip-market feel to the event though, rather than the sophisticated and arty atmosphere it's acquired over the years. Good times!
 
Now it's all expanded over three wings of the majestic Somerset House. I have to admit, I am not your devoted fashionista but even I get rather upset with some of the exhibitors trying to pass off their old leftovers for up-to-date fashion material. But hey! who am I to complaint? I've managed to get my girlfriends here, spend some time together and sip on some bubbles - not an easily accomplished task, so thank you British Fashion Council for organising!  Most of the designers are quite cool though, especially the up-and-coming ones; you can get some real bargains that will probably be worth double the price in the months to come. Call it a "future" in the fashion stock exchange!
