Our tickets included a tote bag designed by Julien Macdonald in a monochrome *cue a champagne and rejoicing* dragon motif; filled with an Elle magazine, mini Essie nail vanish, Maybelline Baby Lips, a hair protein spray, and a strange 'beauty bar' that tasted like a Carnivore's worst nightmare along with a plethora of discounts.
The Courtyard of the house was taken up by the catwalk area and the surrounding rooms of the house were filled with tonnes of designer brands with some pretty good discounts (but obvs not enough for us poor, poor students). Some of our faves were Lost Property of London and Vivienne Westwood *swoon*. Amongst the designers were sponsors offering competitions, and opportunities to try on their products - like the Sunglass Hut (above) which shockingly allowed us, a rowdy threesome of nerdy girls, try on Prada glasses. It. Was. Bliss. (also, how much does Becki look like she's going to punch someone in the 2nd picture? LOL).
The catwalk we attended was trend based for Spring/Summer 14: Florals, Metallics, Sports Luxe and Lace in every colour under the sun and all styled by the theoutnet.com. Although it probably would have been more exciting to see a designer show, the trend was a good basic intro to catwalks and great for our first ever LFW experience.
The overall atmosphere of the day was a strange one; everyone was very attractive, very well dressed and all very bloggy - do you know what I mean? It did feel like people were there to be seen, which was kind of expected, but you know, we're not like that; We went for the free Kinder Buenos.
And with that, I hope you are enjoying the AW14 fashion weeks,
