London Fashion Week – 14-18th  ( + Week-end from the 20th to the 23rd)  )

The London Fashion Week is the most important fashion event in the world. Eighty-one designers, not less, will show their upcoming collections for Spring & Summer 2013 with some Titans in the Fashion Industry like Burberry Prorsum, Mulberry, Pringle of Scotland … You will find the designers list on the Main Website ; The runways schedule is available at this address – they will be displayed in five venues (two on the main site and three others in different locations: Topshop Space, Fashion Scout & My Beaufitul Fashion). As this event is only for professional Press & Media, Buyers, … you can follow the LFW online on the LFW TV.

For everyone (public) you can only attend the London Fashion Week-End on the 20th to the 23rd. Eight different packs are available for you to buy: Just Shop, Shop & Bag, Shop & Catwalk (Designer or Trend)*, Shop & The Lot (Designer or Trend)*, Fashion VIP (and Dining). There are different entry times so book your ticket online on their Book-Tickets page if you want to make sure to get in, there will still be some tickets available on the door, at the box office but it is not guaranteed. You will find any information about the packs on the page (and find out that you’ll get a Mulberry bag if you get either the Fashion VIP, the Lot or the Bag pack). Personally I will  book my ticket for the 20th with the Shop & The Lot (Trend) pack. Obviously I will write a photo report.
* New for this AW12.
You can also take part in some events like the Twitter Fashion Panel which will teach you how to use Twitter and to be confident when you’re tweeting something. There are between two and five events per day at the Event Space ( Schedule here )

London Fashion Night Out – 6th 

Main Website ; It is basically the same concept as the FNO in Paris (find out more about it on this previous article). Have a look at the (huge) map. This time proceeds from the T-Shirt (£18, designed by Jonathan Saunders) will go to the Charity Refuge who is mainly helping women against domestic violence.

So let’s go a little deeper than in the last post and learn more about the FNO. Founded in 2009 it is the unique event in the world to celebrate Fashion. From 6pm to 11pm bring your friends and have fun while shopping around London. Hundreds of retailers take part in this night event, it is time to discover new designers and lovely shops. Do not hesitate to plan your route around the center thanks to the Vogue Map.

If you are a Social Media addict (like me) do not hesitate to follow them on twitter on the Vogue account. The Hashtag for this night is #FNO.

I will not be there (sadly, but I will be at the LFW on the 17th & the 20th). This is the list of the main clothes/beauty retailers for this event:

Get back to School.

It’s now time to get back to school and therefore to get a new wardrobe. If I’ve been rather busy over the last few weeks (and I certainly will be just as busy until the end of August), it still wasn’t enough to prevent me from devoting myself to my daily online shopping session… Here are a few things I picked for this Rentrée and some other little discoveries. I know it is pretty basic stuff – but with nice colours that I like to wear. The thing is, as I am a very skinny person I need a 34-36 size (for the top)  and the Grenfell Trench is not available in this size or if you find one please leave a comment! I have already got a Suit Naver Blazer like the Gant Rugger (Number 1.) but it has only one button, so clearly it’s for early autumn – end of this summer.
1. Gant Rugger Hopsack Peak Lapel Blazer. 2. Priemata Derby Brogue Shoes. 3. Burberry Wool Tie.
4. Gant Herringbone Check Blazer. 5. Burberry Woven Leather Belt. 6. Gant Ribbed Velvet Trousers.
7. Grenfell Trench
Why did I name this picked-list The September Issue? As you should know the September Issue for a fashion magazine is the most important issue of the year, the one that’s got the biggest influence on readers. So yes, I go this way – the Rentrée is really important for us, because it represents a fresh start. We get to meet new people and get new stuff for the year etc… I believe it’s essential to be prepared for all these things and to me, ‘being prepared’ simply means (among other things of course!) updating my wardrobe ;-) The only thing missing now is a nice umbrella.
