london fashion week vlog
For the first of many London Fashion Week posts and reviews, I wanted to throw together a mix of backstage and front of house footage from J JS Lee, Bora Aksu, Sibling, Holly Fulton, and more.

As LG‘s official London Fashion Week blogger, I was very kindly given backstage access along with time to hang out with the LG SteamTeam as they preened the designers’ immaculate collections to perfection (the perks of working with the Official Garment Care Supplier!).

Stay tuned for more sneak peaks (photos and insights and fashgasms, oh my!) as well as a preview of  the Ashley Williams for LG partnership.

Enjoy the video (below!)

Brace yourself, superbabes. These photos were taken with a smartphone.

Knowing of my major obsession with my Galaxy S4, Samsung very kindly invited me to play with the brand spankin’ new Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom over London Fashion Week.

Though it has a lot of the same features as my beloved S4 – Group Play, Sound & Shot, Drama Shot, etc – the Zoom has entered a league of its own. It has the most powerful zoom lens of any smartphone (we’re talking 10x optical zoom!), a 16 MP CMOS sensor, OIS and Xenon flash. It felt like carrying a spy-friendly mini SLR over Fashion Week and, as you can see from the photos I took at Holly Fulton (below), delivered insane results.

I may not end up with a SLR-broken back in my twenties, after all. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is, at the very least, a blogger’s best friend.

David Koma Fall Winter 2011
I am a sculptural kind of woman. This makes David Koma a Fashion Week ‘must see’. Though he was part of a New Gen duo presentation with Holly Fulton, Koma is the name synonymous with my new fashion dreams. Fur pom-poms and hallucinogenic prints popped up unexpectedly after heavy embellishments and circle disks seduced my weak sartorial heart. Cohesive cut-out heels by Alain Quilici were the icing on the commendable cake. See the top five looks below! View Post

Fashion East LFW Runway
Felicity Brown, Heikki Salonen and Simone Rocha were the designers for this year’s Fashion East at London Fashion Week. For the unaware, Fashion East celebrated it’s 10th year of promoting up-and-coming designers to help them launch their labels (and with Marios Schwab, Jonathan Saunders, Richard Nicoll and Holly Fulton all ex-Fashion East designers, you know it’s no joke). Look to Felicity for hand-dyed silk dresses that resemble petals. Look to Heikki for androgyny and Birkenstocks. Look to Simone for a white-out with cut-outs. Look to them all for the next big thing.

Holly Fulton LFW Runway
After claiming she was inspired by Joan Collins, I watched some of Holly Fulton‘s signature art deco designs shimmer down a stark runway (better to show off her talent, for sure). While she has always been strongly influenced by the Sixties, this London Fashion Week Fulton made a collection that nodded sincerely to the huge Seventies upsurge this season. There was a great feel to the show added by some well-styled accessories, including an enormous pair of geometric earrings to a clutch bag emblazoned with ‘holly says relax‘. Ultra unique, and definitely one to watch. View Post
