With London Fashion week on the imminent horizon, it’s time to plan what to wear for the whirling dervish of shows, presentations and parties. Dressing for Fashion Week is a precarious balancing act – there are a bunch of boxes that need to be ticked:
1) Fashion forward dressing – one can’t been seen to be unaware of the upcoming trends, heaven forfend.
2) Nonchalance – no matter how much effort has been made, it’s essential to appear like no effort has been made at all.
This outfit is a contender for the week ahead, my PVC skirt and leather trench are splash proof and wipe clean which is a plus for me in any scenario as I’ve caused more than my fair share of spillages. I love the silver collar and cuff details on this silk blouse by Negarin London from Rtister, it adds a little David Bowie bling to a classic piece. The Ziggy Stardust theme is carried through with my silver boots from Reiss.
The above list details just a few of the style stipulations that need to be considered, however when presented with a bunch of rules my natural instinct is to flout them. I’ll probably spend London Fashion Week tramping around in a soggy ball gown from three seasons ago just to be contrary, no matter the ill fated consequences.
