LFW Summary: Monochrome

by laurenlux

All I can say about this LFW is that I became monochrome obsessed. My theme of outfits was monochrome and I think it will be a favourite of mine for a while. Lucky for me I work closely with Jonathan Daniel Pryce from Another Garcon who I had a couple of mini photoshoots with. We often collaborate on Selfridges projects and he was at London Fashion Week as their street style photographer photographer (and an excellent one at that). He works magic with the camera! See some outfit pics below. I will also share some of the street style and catwalk pics I personally took at LFW. For now, here is my outfit from Day 1:

This is the talented man behind the camera. That’s all for now.

What do you all think of Monochrome? Anyone else as obsessed as me?

Back.. Just in time to prep for LFW

by laurenlux

So I know it’s been ages since I last posted, but I’ve decided to make a comeback, and just in time for London Fashion Week… which starts TOMORROW! Ahh i haven’t even written my diary for the weekend yet or printed half my tickets! I’ll be going to Issa, Fyodor Golan, Eugine Lin, Todd Lynn, John Rocha, PPQ, Michael Van Der Ham and moreeeee. So before I rant on about how I need to plan my days, here are some tips on how to get ready for LFW:

  1. Plan your wardrobe

Let’s be honest, it’s less about what we see on the catwalks and all about who’s wearing what on the streets. Look to fashion favourites Christopher Kane and Peter Pilotto to make sure your look stands up to scrutiny.

  1. Get some sleep

A day running around in heels followed by a night on the tiles is going to take it out of you. If you can’t stock up on your beauty sleep then at least invest in some of these beauty savers from Clinique and Origins.

  1. Be a preen queen

A striking manicure is nearly as important as a head-turning outfit. Stay ahead of the curve with DIY nail kits from Ciaté and Nails Inc.

  1. Pimp your technology

Whether you’re on an iPad or an android (I would personally choose iPad any day), your technology is key.  Give yours a fashion upgrade with quirky cases from Marc by Marc Jacobs and sleek covers by Lanvin.

That’s all for now – look out for updates tomorrow!
