So London Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow - who's excited? I thought that I'd mark the occasion by sharing some LFW tips with you as based on my past experience:
My LFW tips
Well firstly I guess I should start off by advising you to wear comfortable shoes or to keep some flats handy to change into. Now last season, I actually did wear comfortable shoes, and lo and behold my feet still ended up hurting! I actually remember thinking "well fine, next time I'll just wear my heels then!" Basically you've been warned - Fashion Week hurts your feet!
London Fashion Week is a fun and exciting experience, however do not forget to stay hydrated (keep some water on you) and don't forget to eat either. It may sound obvious, but if you're doing show after show, and are busy running around London to the various show venues like I was, then it is very easy to forget to refuel yourself.
There's always people giving out various snacks and beverages so I'd advise you to grab some. Last time while we were in the queue we were given these small packs of posh dried fruit. I took two and kept them in my camera bag for later - and trust me they came in so handy!
Lastly - I think there's rain forecast for the weekend so you may want to pack your brolly!
...and those are my quick tips! I just thought I'd keep it brief but who knows these tips might help someone, especially if you're a fashion week newbie. Although I received some cool invites I have decided not to attend this season as I'm currently a bit poorly so I'll be lying in bed recovering (awwww poor me lol); and as usual I'm mega busy so my head just isn't in "show" mode. I don't know if I'm just being lazy, but I'm more than happy to catch the coverage online, and let's be honest - lying in bed with my hot water bottle is the best seat in the house!! I plan on attending next season though when I will have more time to sort through invites and plan my schedule, but for this season I choose my bed!
Here's a few snaps that I took last season:
