Happy Monday Lovelies!
I hadn't actually planned on attending London Fashion Week as I'm mad busy with my property business so timing wasn't great, but when Fashion International kindly invited me to see their SS14 shows Friday evening this fitted more with my schedule, so I was excited to attend.
Before the I hit the shows, I went along to the Handpicked Media LFW event at One Aldwych Hotel where they had some fantastic brand presence...Superdry, Freya, Anna Lou Of London, Bourjois to name a few, as well as beauty stations to get yourself fully primped & ready for the shows!

On the way out, there was the Goody Bar to visit where there were some fabulous products for us bloggers to get our hands on & put to the test...well, there's got to be some perks of being a blogger hasn't there?
Here are some of the products I'm looking forward to using over the next few weeks...
I already use the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser & swear by it (if you haven't tried it, you must!), so am looking forward to trying some of the other products in the range. My hair is in desperate need of some TLC after all the chlorine & sun exposure it's had this summer, so the Moroccan Oil Hydrating shampoo, conditioner & styling oil, could not have come at a better time!
A massive thanks to Handpicked Media for a fab event & all the wonderful goodies!
Off to the Shows...
The shows took place at the Charing Cross Hotel. I have to admit, I hadn't heard of any of the designers that were showing as they're all up & coming, but I kind of liked that - no expectations, discovering new talent.
Muted colours & clean lines defined this collection with the detail taking the form of hand painting & embellishment.
This was my favourite collection of nude & ivory eveningwear embellished with crystals, beads, feathers & pearls, with inspiration taken from the 1920s. Incredible workmanship, the detail was exquisite.
Again, a 1920s & 1930s vibe to this collection, with the emphasis on fabric & vibrant colour, enhanced by crystal applique embellishment. I personally loved all the masquerade masks!
This was Wajahat's first collection called Exotica, full of vibrant colours & flowing fabrications with the detail all in the intricate ruching, pleating & draping.
I adored the stark contrast of structure vs fluidity in this collection, which demonstrated some fabulous tailoring, whilst still remaining feminine in essence.
Thank you to Fashion International & Dee Vesali Publicity for inviting me to what were fabulous shows!
And as for my outfit....all will be revealed later this week!
Thanks for reading
Have a wonderful week Lovelies!
