"Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live."

-Gianni Versace 
London Fashion Weekend was simply amazing!! Held at Somerset house; The designer rooms, Beauty Regimes and catwalk runways was every fashionistas dream, not to talk of the free massages, free Kinder Buenos and the free studio photograph taken from a professional photographer! This is the perfect Londoner's weekend. I went on the first day of the "Weekend" (Thursday) and it was beautiful, collections included famous designers like Chloe to Galiano to Radley and Gandys. Last, but not least there's the catwalk... OUTSTANDING! Famous Presenter Rachel Zoe hosted the catwalk which had the summer/spring 2013 collection in mind, the designs were gorgeous, each collection had a theme ; Oriental, which consisted of floral patterns, silk organza, it had a geisha type of affect. They also had an urban Londoner collection, funny enough Boris Johnson's Barclays bike was on the runway! But my favorite collection was simply called "Doll House", the designs were very quirky, playful and very feminine but still quite edgy and that is the type of style that I usually go for. Luckily for those who didn't get a chance to go, you can view the "Doll House" collection from the YouTube upload above. Hope this gives you some inspiration towards spring and summer this year.It may be cold, but spring is just around the corner! 

YouTube Video was filmed by me ;)

Yesterday, I went to the London College Of Fashion! See, I'm a CAPS student which means I'm a part of their enrolling scheme. I loved every second of every seminar, which made me excited about attending their institution. Anyway, when the seminars were over, I left and found an exhibition, but not just any exhibition, an eye wear exhibition!! These eye wear pieces are extraordinary to the core, the students who created them are very, very talented and open-minded when it comes to creativity. I mean, there's even a pair of eye wear influenced under Lego blocks! Each pair has a story behind them both visual and intellectual, but they all served their purpose, when it comes to fashion and art.Some are wearable and some are made for display only. I applaud them (and when I say 'them', I mean the students) and commend their expertise.  :)

 
 
Chanel has spent many years (and money) making a name for themselves and I think it's safe to say they've done themselves and coco herself proud. But now with the help of Karl Lagerfield & Carine Roitfiels, they have produced a visual exhibition of thier pieces appropriately named The Little Black Jacket : Chanel's Classic Revisited, which is modelled by the famous (and infamous). These fashion photos have been displayed from New York to Hong Kong and are going to be published here in London on October 12. The exhibition will be held at the Saatchi Gallery and will end on October 28. I know tight schedule, so If I were you, I get down there the second the door opens.
