I love the atmosphere in London during fashion week, the city has no shortage of savvy fashionistas and whether you're swamped with invites to every catwalk show or simply want to enjoy the buzz, its bursting with things to do - top of the list, people watching outside Somerset House, highly enjoyable, would recommend.

London Fashion week @ Somerset House

One of the first designers to showcase was Bora Aksu and I couldn't be happier that I got to preview his work in action. This season happened to be my first taste of actual fashion week - as apposed to just attending LFWend, it felt slightly strange watching all the press madness, sitting opposite the likes of Laura Whitmore, Nina Nesbitt & Rosie Fortescue.

Bora's collection is a tribute to the delicacy of paper dolls and it was utterly beautiful, a combination of lace, appliqué and crochet, most of all, each design is totally wearable, something which isn't always the case on the catwalk. White was used as a background for the collection, including a pallet of nudes, peach and pink to incorporate the ballerina-esque, as well as dark shades of black, cobalt and lilac blues, using cottons, silks and organza manipulated together to create the perfect light, feather weight feel summer look. 

The models looked gorgeous. Natural makeup with soft tones, complimenting each outfit with the added perfect touch of Swarovski crystal jewellery and sunglasses - a must in summer.  Simple, feminine hair, a side parted pony fastened with black leather binding to create shape. All of which portrayed a feminine, chic look.


Sorry about the lack of pictures - majorly regretting not taking my camera and relying on the not so trusty in dark lighting, iPhone. Damn. However, Vogue have it covered if you'd like a closer look of the amazing collection here.

I'm off to the H by Hakaan Yildirim LFW show tuesday then flying off to Mykonos the next morning, so will be back on track with blogging when i'm home. I'll be on Instagram in the mean time, obvs.
