A Trip to London

As you probably all know  over the last two weeks it has been pretty busy in the fashion world with London Fashion Week and London Fashion Weekend, which as Fashion Management students at Robert Gordon University we were lucky enough to attend! After getting up at 3am for the flight, mastering the tube and locating the hotel, we got to experience everything London had to offer including the night life a bit of sightseeing and a fashion show at Somerset House. It was definitely a worth while trip! 

For anyone who is not familiar with London Fashion Weekend it's basically a massive fashion showcase featuring designer shopping, pop-up shops, hair and beauty, expert advice sessions and a fashion show which focused on upcoming trends (see below), all within the beautiful setting of Somerset House. This was a great opportunity for us to experience the atmosphere of a catwalk show (and a free goodie bag is always a plus!). 

Trends Featured in the Catwalk

To the catwalk show I decided to wear some of my new purchases from back in Aberdeen which can be seen below. 

Jacket - Marks & Spencer
Shorts - Miss Selfridge
Boots - Internationale
*I actually wore a shirt on the day which
you can see in the previous photo
which is from Asos...if anyone is interested.

After a random trip through Marks & Spencer I spotted this jacket, even though I hardly ever buy things from here I loved the pattern, the tailored fit and the asymmetric zip detailing. I also loved these shorts from Miss Selfridge that I think add a nice pop of colour as we move towards Spring. 

Overall, our trip to London was a success and I will definitely be looking into plans to go back in the Summer. Check out my next post for some of my purchases from London!
