First day at London Fashion Week

Today was a crazy day, in a good way but crazy all the same. I also have to say that starting fashion week having not slept very much in the past week would have undoubtedly added to the stress of the day.

The day didn't start off very well as I was late and therefore missed the Glam/Benefit bloggers' breakfast (damn traffic - I was trying to save time but I might as well have taken the train) so I missed out on a great goody bag. Anyhoo later on I went over to Vauxhall Fashion Scout to see David Koma's show. It had a few elements that I thought were similar to his last collection but I did like the pieces, especially towards the end. Loved the cut out details and how he played with that sometimes using nude inserts and sometimes bare skin.

As well as being the start of LFW it was also RooR's exhibition at Fashion Mavericks. That went really well too and we got quite a bit of interest, and some potential buyers *fingers crossed* We also had Nike Akinola come to our stand and it was lovely to meet her in person.

Anyway need to get back to work now. Our show is tomorrow and still have some finishing touches left to do but I wanted to do a quick post. Hoping to get to bed relatively early (read 3am).

By the way, Stacey killed Archie Mitchell. Who knew eh?

I really like the detail on this piece, this is where it started to get interesting for me. David's signature heavy embellishment and structural shapes becoming more obvious. You can also catch a glimpse of Susie in the background, wonder what she though of the show...

Check out the asymmetrical piece, I wonder if it's back for another season?
