LONDON FASHION WEEKEND 2013

 
On Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th of February 2013, I went to London Fashion Weekend at Somerset House. London Fashion Weekend takes place twice a year, in September and in February. Back in September when i first started university at London College Of Fashion, London Fashion Weekend was taking place and i really wanted to go. Luckily, i ended up winning tickets on Oxford Street to go with some friends and i had such a great time.
 
However, this time, i was actually working backstage for all the catwalk shows including the trend shows, Louise Grey shows and Issa London shows, which were all organised by the lovely Hilary Alexander. After working backstage at London Fashion Week the week before this, i was even more excited to do it all over again!
 
Here is a picture of me and the lovely Hilary Alexander, British journalist and the Fashion Director of The Daily Telegraph........
 
 
Here are some pictures from throughout Day 1 of backstage......
 
Some boots i loved which were worn for the trend show for the 'Dolls House' trend.

Me and the gorgeous presenter for London Fashion Weekend, Zoe Hardman - We were chewing gum buddies for the weekend, haha!

All the freebies i got from London Fashion Weekend: Mulberry designed London Fashion Week tote bag, Radley designed London Fashion Weekend tote bag, Elle Magazine, Toni and Guy hair products, and £140 worth of Elizabeth Arden Make-Up, not bad! :)
 
I know its abit of a picture overload in this post, but i had such an amazing time both at London Fashion Week and London Fashion Weekend, and took loads of pictures. I can't wait to do it again next year if i get the chance!
You may have noticed that i've mention 'Her Curious Nature' head pieces alot in this post, as they were used in many of the trend shows and i absolutely LOVED them. Here are a few pictures of some of their hand made creations.....
