This post is very over-due but I thought I'd share with you some of my highlights from my Trip to London for fashion week in February. I hadn't been to London in over 5 years ad even then I didn't get to explore so that was one of my favourite things about the trip was just getting to explore new areas of London and be a bit touristy.
The venue for this years Fashion week was Brewer street car park and the street style was amazing.
I didn't actually have backstage tickets for Christopher Kane however as it was hosted at the Tate modern we sat on one of the exhibition floors above with glass walls so we got to watch the show with a birds eye view which was great.
Over the period of fashion week there was an exhibition on at Somerset house called 'Fashion utopia' which was so inspiring in was a showcase of new designers from a variety of countries where the fashion industry is hard to work in. It was amazing as each room went on to see the links between the culture of that country and how dress can represent a nationality too.
Then we headed to Brick Lane to explore which was just amazing we spent hours exploring the amazing vintage shops and I can't wait to go back there. It was such an inspiring area in terms of art and style.
I also attended the Liberty exhibition at the fashion and textile museum which was a great journey through the history of one of the Britian's most iconic brands.
The third exhibition I went to was 'Vogue: 100 years of style' at the National portrait gallery which was worth the hefty entry fee, if you love fashion journalism or fashion photography you will be able to spend hours walking around and feeling inspired. It is curated and displayed so well and amazing to see the change in fashion photography over 100 years, it is still on over the summer to I recommend that you all go to see it.
