Fashion Frenzy: London Fashion Week

Forgot your grandfather’s Easy-chair (with lifting foot rest of course) and make way for the most coveted seats in the house:  front row at London Fashion Week. That’s right, that fashion bonanza is returning to the capital city this February 17th-21st. The Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 collections are going to explode onto the runway and there will be a plethora of cross-legged, sunglassed beauties (and beaus) pouting appropriately at this year’s festivities. And I’m not the least bit jealous. Ok, well maybe a little. I mean I love clothes. Probably more than Simon Cowell loves black tee-shirts. Or more than Leo DiCaprio loves models. Or more than, oh you get the point. 

There are some great spring and summer trends in fashion and beauty that I’m looking forward to seeing the guests sport and forecasts for the new trends will be designer-tastic. They’re all going to be showcased in venues around the city and since my grandma refused to be loaned out for a front row ticket I’ll have to make do with all the press that will inevitably surround the event. That woman never gives me anything I want.

So what are going to be some of your favourite trends at the moment? I love the gorgeous pastel shades that remind me of Disney princesses at Ellie Saab, Louis Vuitton and Versace. 

See what I mean????

And I love how the high street has responded with some gorgeous goodies. New Look has me wanting to break out my plastic crown. 

I am totally in the mood for the Olympics after seeing the offerings at Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim. 

Warehouse has some great pieces to help recreate the trend and I can't wait to rock my inner Sporty Spice.

I’m a great lover of print (in my other life I was a leopard) and colour so couldn’t mention the current trends without mentioning the great prints gracing last year. The prints at Jill Sander and Dries Van Noten have blown me away.

Karen Millen got the memo and her prints are beautiful and bold.

There is so much more on the way and I’m really excited. Is it wrong to sit cross-legged wearing my biggest sunglasses whilst reading the Grazia edit? Hmm. It might be a bit strange for the housemate. Who cares! Now where are my Primarni sunnies...

Till next time beauties,

Deja xx
