I have been a fan of Teatum Jones for a while now, with every season the duo's collections get better and better their craft seems to get more honed. When the invite to the show arrived I danced a little gig of joy. On the day of the show though I have to admit, I complained a bit - well the ticket said 2 mins away from Somerset House which is true, if, a you are a Londoner and know where you're going, b you're wearing ultra-comfortable shoes and can run rather than walk. Anyway.. I digress.
One of my favourite shows at London Fashion week was without a doubt Paul Costelloe. The Dublin Born designer returned to the catwalks after 12 months with a wonderful collection titled "Angel in the Fields". Paul Costelloe is renowned for having dressed the late Princess Diana and Kate Middleton The show followed by a presentation, was held at Simpson’s-in-the-Strand which is a wonderful place and the mood was relaxed and casual and *fan moment* I got to meet the designer himself and he told me he loved my outfit *die of excitement*.
More of what caught my eye at London Fashion Week - some truly beautiful accessories. Whilst London Fashion Week at heart is a trade event - meaning it's meant to be for press/buyers/stylists only (to this day these are the only people who get accredited and let into the shows and designer showrooms)..over the years, it's also become a chance for fashion-obsessed people to showcase their self-styling around the streets of Somerset House. Whilst it annoyed me that it felt like some people had absolutely no interest at all in the actual event but were there simply for the chance to get spotted, it's also brilliant to people-watch and some people really do come up with super interesting outfits.
