It is now that time of year once more, when all is bright and colourful in store fronts,
pop ups are a plenty and all the creatives in town come out to play.
For it is indeed play time, or rather shall we say it is once more again that time known as London Fashion Week, The Fashion Parade is back in town, along with all the bloggers, influencers, journalist, photographers, videographers, presenters, writers, editors, stylist, buyers, make up artists, models and all other creatives I may have managed to have escape mentioning. Anniversaries, new leaders, creative directors, and new teams, new marking plans and there are always new bean counters. Way too many some of you may think. London is awash with a smile of rare blessed and prolonged sunshine, and along with it, Fashion Week is hear to give us all a taster of inspirations for the coming spring summer season of 2019.
A lot can happen and probably will take place between now and then, when hot items hot the shops, or more likely the case being it’s all about fast fashion these days, within 48 hours max of the end of the catwalk shows, you should be able to get your hands on those very same items you’re all googling, streaming, downloading and flicking through endless pages with images on, if a bit old school and still love all that tactile analogue stuff.
So how has this been reflected on the main catwalks?
The ones outside the various fashion show venues? Well as previously mentioned, colour is making a play for attention, and in a would bound by planetary law to adhere to that term that has an epidemic influence, (safe), the street style provided a much welcomed show of entertainment and inspirations. Hopefully some will influence the mainstream fashion houses. It has been known to happen.
So let’s start off the proceedings with an offering of the visual excitement we managed to capture for you, over the first 2 days of #LFW, London Fashion Week.
