My LFW Diary
And just like that, London Fashion Week SS18 is done! The jammed packed week came and went in a flash, and I was so excited to experience another season in my hometown. It was amazing getting the opportunity to see all the local talent London had to offer. All the shows and designs were incredible, and definitely made the busy week worthwhile. There were so many different trends happening on the runway, some of them even paid homage to the city! I had a few favorite trends of my own that inspired my looks, but every collection was a showstopper.
One of my favorite and definitely bolder of the trends is flashy silver. Think disco ball and lots of sparkle, but more edgy and modern. Verus Versace featured several of these cool-toned metallic pieces in the collection, and I’ve combined it with another one of my favorite trend, athlesisure, to create a sporty luxe look with some sequined track pants and silver puffer jacket. Before you say, “ Omg Kate, puffers are so not cute,” these toasty babies are actually have a huge moment in the fashion world right now, and since it’s publicly acceptable/fashionable to wear one, I am oh so very happy as I am always cold!
One really great trend that I saw on the runway was regal tones and feminine prints. Erdem Moralioglu’s collection for example, featured deep and rich colors combined with romantic textiles. It inspired my look high-power female look with a orange lace midi dress and structured maroon printed coat. The monochromatic outfit was kept simple with some black accessories and a classic but playful braided bun.
I am so grateful for another amazing fashion week here in London. While the week can sometimes be so busy and tiring, I always end up feeling refreshed and inspired.
