After shooting a bit of street style and having a bit of a mass meet and greet with some of my favourite bloggers around Somerset House I kicked off my London Fashion Week at Zoe Jordan - and what an opening it was for me. Greys, burgundies, knits, rich colours and very wearable tailoring. As Eleanor and I discussed after the show, we'd like to wear the entire collection.
I love the slick but still slightly boho tie dye like print this stunning finale dress was made of. I also love the flattering shape, embellished shoulders and I think the best place for it to be would be on me!
One of the most memorable looks for me was this great chunky grey scarf. I've been noticing a lot of brightly coloured chunky scarfs in the street style snaps from New York Fashion Week, so I'm glad to see the trend seems as if it is going to roll over into some more muted, Rachel friendly colours!
I loved the messy braids the models were all wearing down the runway, and while you can't tell very well from my photos, they had beautiful burgundy smoky eyes, something I now really want to try. Fashion 156 have some great backstage photos that show the makeup.
Photography wise, the finale of a show where all the models walk out I think is the best time to take photos!
