After a morning of coffee and cakes, it was time to get professional! We marched ourselves over to Soho, and checked in at the main Press Desk in the London Fashion Week Hub.
We collected our press passes, schedules and floorplan for the Designer Showrooms and other catwalk shows.
A Resting Bitch Face just happens to be the generic uniform of most attendees… Or so I’m told. And contrary to the look on my face, I was quite thrilled to have the opportunity to be at Fashion Week with The 405! On the way to the first show of the day, we couldn’t help but stop and snap a few Street Style photos of this vibrant orange and white ensemble.
It was a pleasure to meet the fashion blogger Marsha from Style of a London Tall Girl. Find her blog here.The line outside of The Vinyl Factory for the Edeline Lee show snaked across the courtyard and spilled out onto the street! This was definitely not a presentation to miss!Once the eager attendees (us included) made it inside, the large installation-style space was all hustle and bustle.
The pieces in the AW/16 collection were a minimalist dream of soft fabrics and beautiful lines. For more details on what I thought on the show and the space, check out the small piece on The 405, here.
An artist caught mid-sketch. Sometimes the crowd can be just as interesting as the clothing on display!
Once we agreed we’d looked (longingly) at the clothes in the presentation, we turned to leave…And just before we did, we saw the infamous fashion blogger Pandemonia! (The cartoon character ‘drawn’ to life has slotted into numerous, coveted Front Row seats at fashion week for years. Pandemonia is the creation of an anonymous London-based fine artist.)If you’re interested in the phenomenon that is Pandemonia, there is a pretty great interview with the character herself, here!We just took satisfaction in the knowledge that even the artistic creation of Pandemonia loaded up on the goodie bags and enjoyed the Edeline Lee show as us!
