London Fashion Week #LFW is officially in full swing with J.W. Anderson bringing back long skirts, whilst Holly Fulton goes all 1920s Art Deco and who can forget Henry Holland's 'Debauched Debutantes'; based on an imaginary Debutante ball that got leaked onto Facebook and crashed by a group of 'House of Holland Harlots' or Cara Delevigne taking the first ever Catwalk selfie during her walk in the Giles show! This season we can expect to see more bias-cut skirts with the pencil skirt making a comeback, we can also expect to see clashing prints, wallpaper prints and pieces emblazoned by eclectic sayings.
With all this aside, my #LFW highlight has to be the Sophia Webster presentation! Whilst Sophia may not have had a catwalk, she used her Covent Garden pop-up shop to create a story, allowing everyone to visit the Heartbreak Hotel. There was no FROW at this show, everyone had a chance to get up close and personal.
I absolutely adore the fact that Sophia herself is married with a child, however she endeavoured and succeeded to win the hearts of many young and single ladies! Whilst many can relate to music through their heartbreak (in my case Tay Swift), Sophia has created a wonderful and engaging concept where young girls can engage through shoes...and well we all LOVE shoes!
Even though I was unable to go to the heartbreak Hotel (my invite obviously got lost in the mail..) my friend Claudia did and she kindly sent me her photos (THANKS CLAUDE)! This season saw pom pom, and furs with lots of bright, rearing on neon colours with gladiator knee-high boots and stiletto sandals, followed by the platform. This season's platform is VERY chunky, clunky and funky and reflects the 60s, retro vibe produced in the concept.
All in all, Sophia Webster - We love you! ♥
