Revisiting the photographs we took during London Fashion Week has been so satisfying. Putting together these retrospective blog posts has been pretty heart warming too.On my last day in London for Fashion Week (I had to return to York later that day, but #LFW would continue for a further two days) we headed over to Somerset House.
I was informed that in previous years #LFW had been hosted in the beautiful Stuart architecture of Somerset House – which is definitely a Fashion Bloggers aesthetic dream! Of course, a majority of my experience of Fashion Week had been situated in London’s Soho area, so it was nice to have an excuse to visit the historic 17th Century building.We had come to Somerset House to visit the famed International Fashion Showcase, that this year was themed ‘Fashion Utopias’.
A rather extraordinary exhibition that had a very different take on fashion and its presentation to the catwalks and presentations we had seen elsewhere. Sadly the exhibition only lasted as long as Fashion Week itself.If you’re interested in a little more information, you can check out a small summary and a few details I wrote up for The 405, here!After strolling around the International Fashion Showcase, we decided to take a pause and snap a few pictures of our last-day-of-London-Fashion-Week-together outfits.
Cause that’s what besties do, right?From hair braids to silver skirts, we had decided to go all out on our last day as Fashion Week press! They say ‘the devil is in the details’, and this applied pretty heavily to both of our ensembles.
One of us had donned black, shiny, pointed, patent leather booties. While the other was in cheetah print, hairy, heeled booties.
One was sporting a long, black skinny scarf. And the other wore a neatly tied, navy bandana neckerchief.On Sophia:

We encompassed an array of trends that swirled together and somehow still worked! Our outfits complimented and coordinated in terms of colour palettes and style – and when walking around like a power couple – that’s all that matters!And that’s the conclusion of the Fashion Week diaries!
