How would you describe your London Fashion Week Style?
"As we are writing this, London Fashion week is still a week away and we haven’t 100% decided on all of our outfits just yet. What we do know is that we are all loving all the beautiful prints this season and will probably end up in a floaty shirt or dress covered in an interesting print. Some of us are better then others at wearing popping colours, but fashion week is definitely not the time to be modest with what you are wearing so we will most likely be rather colorful during the falls biggest fashion event.
There are also a lot of wrap tops, dresses and jackets to be found in the latest collections both from designer brands and on the highstreet, something that we supposedly will see even more of throughout SS18. Zsanett has found a stunning kimono to wear and is now just looking for the perfect outfit to go with it.
Statement earpieces are also a big thing this season, a trend we have all fallen in love with. We were lucky enough to receive some stunning hand made earrings from Toolally, in our LFW box from Fleur of England which we are looking forward to adapting into our LFW outfits."
Which show are you most looking forward to seeing?
"We are seeing quite a few shows during LFW with up to 5 designers per show, so it is really hard to say what we are the most excited about. But if we have to pick one, then we would say Marina Wills. She is actually from Germany like our Annabell, but studied fashion here in London. Marina is only 28 years old and has specialised in fashion printing. We love her colorful and very creative designs and are very much looking forward to seeing her newest collection on the catwalk this coming Saturday."
What beauty essentials will you be taking with you?
"Not sure if they count as beauty essentials, but we will definitely be bringing some Compeed plasters with us for our feet which we assume will be hurting lots after hours in heels.
A small makeup kit will also be in our handbags for whenever we need to freshen up our look. We usually have a little makeup bag with us for castings. In this kit we have a concealer, a blusher stick that can be used both on the cheeks and on the lips (it is key to carry as little as possible, so a 2 in 1 is always a good idea!). We also usually bring a small hairbrush and a travel sized dry shampoo.
We have also recently all been given a lovely facial spray to freshen the skin and add some glow back to it whenever we feel a bit tired. It’s an anti pollution spray as well which is a must when living in London! So this spray is coming with us for sure."
What are the top 5 essentials you have to take with you?
1. Camera! As bloggers, having a good camera with us is probably the most important item to bring as we will of course be documenting lots on our blog and social media platforms.
2. Compeed - We know we mentioned this in the last question, but it´s definitely one of the most essential items that we can bring during LFW
3. A bottle of water. Staying hydrated is key on busy days like these!
4. Mobile phone for lots of social media spamming! Guess your mobile phone is one of those things which is always essential to bring, but it is particularly essential during LFW! Because we are planning on using our phones a lot during our fashion week days, bringing a mobile charges is also important, or even better - a portable charging battery!
5. Business cards. We will be attending lots of exiting events and bloggers meet ups during LFW and it will naturally be a great place to meet new people to connect our blog with. We are always looking for people to collaborate with and also interesting people who could guest blog for us - so having some business cards with us is key! Luckily we have all gotten a lovely leather card holder from Rawfind that will be perfect for storing our THE 4 OF US cards :)
Whose celeb style never disappoints at LFW?
"We are all big fans of Alexa Chung. She has such a cool look and always super on trend! Very excited to see what look she will be going for this season!"
Even if you don't have tickets to the shows, head down to Brewer Street to watch the many fashionistas strut their stuff for the street style photographers. It's a great place to pick up on the new seasons trends without having to spend money on tickets. Most people will dress to impress and show off their style credentials so if you have ambitions of being snapped by a street style photographer then be sure to pack your best outfit with stunning lingerie to give you confidence as London fashion week tends to draw in a much more flamboyant crowd than New York, Paris and Milan.
