London Fashion Weekend

While I’m taking this little trip down memory lane, I must remember London Fashion Weekend! After the madness of London Fashion Week has calmed down and normality starts to return, London Fashion Weekend hits, and is a much needed form of retail therapy! I always feel so inspired by the shows and love rummaging around for something extra special.

Like LFW, London Fashion Weekend has changed venue to Somerset House/180 Strand. Most of the good stuff was at 180 Strand, it felt like Ozzy and I spent forever looking around at, well, pretty much everything! There were so many pretty things, although I was slightly disgusted when he tried on a real rabbit fur jacket. Thankfully, the jacket stayed on the rails! I came away with just one item, this absolutely amazing sequin tutu by Reem. Reem is an Iraqi-born London designer who is famed for her distinctive costume exuberance and urban uniform aesthetic. There were so many lovely things at the Reem stand, but this skirt really caught my eye. I literally wore it on the first occasion I had, even though it meant wearing my beautiful skirt on the bus!
