On 21st September, I attended Vodafone London Fashion Weekend, an event that I never knew existed until a month before.
Curious to find out what “fashion’s finest shopping event” had to offer, I collected my Mulberry show bag on the way in (the photo above shows what’s inside). Before I could decided what area of Somerset House to wander through first, I was approached and snapped by Fashion Weekend’s Street Style team! My photo appeared in Fashion Weekend’s digital magazine. Click here to read the issue.
Any trip to Fashion Weekend is not complete without visiting the Shoe Room because it is to die for. Here, you can find top shoe designers such as French Sole, Finsk and Kat Maconie.
Fancy being an ELLE cover star? Look no further. The brilliant Canon Studio allows Fashion Weekend visitors to star in their own ELLE front cover with a free photo shoot. Yes, normal, everyday people like me and you on the cover of a fashion magazine. Don’t worry, it’s not about pulling off high-fashion poses or “smizing” until your eyes begin to twitch. If you happen to be a little camera-shy like me, why not grab a friend to join you in front of the lens? No-one is asking you to be a model, so just have fun! As Canon is an official sponsor of London Fashion Weekend, all you photography enthusiasts can view and purchase the company’s newest releases.
Although I didn’t buy anything, I was fortunate to receive tips and advice from successful editors, journalists and bloggers about how to get noticed and get ahead in the industry. So, in addition to shopping the latest catwalk trends, attendees got to meet like-minded fashionistas and gain knowledge. Who can say no to that?
If you want to have fun, attend catwalk shows, meet new people, and buy discounted items from premium and designer brands, you should come down to London Fashion Weekend. It’s fun, it’s informal and more than a designer shopping event.
Tickets for Vodafone London Fashion Weekend SS13 are now on sale. The dates are Thursday 21st – Sunday 24th Febuary.
See you next year?
