Hello from London! I’m here for Fashion Week. Friday was day 1 of the stylish event and started on a high, the sun was shining and it was one of those really beautiful crisp winter days, I got up very early in the morning for breakfast and tea (doing it the English way lol ) at the Apex Hotel where I am staying and then headed to the shows and presentations on the schedule.
First show of the day was by acclaimed Turkish designer Bora Aksu. I was amazed by the entire collection and loved the dark romantic vibes , combining elements of intrigue with seduction. You can see his new Aw18 collection here.

After the first show , I headed over to Duck n’ Dry for a pamper sesh. I was lucky to invited by Prep Social for a blow dry and brow tame by Benefit Cosmetics. Let me tell you, ain’t nothing like being pampered and glammed up while drinking your tea ( or whatever drink you want ) and getting you ready for the #lfw shows. Felt like I was getting the celebrity treatment full package.
After my glam squad was done with me, I went to grab a quick bite before going to Pam Hogg’s show. Pam Hogg is a Scottish designer I recently discovered and was very lucky to be invited to her show. As soon as I arrived at Fashion Scout where the event was happening there were already a couple of hundred people cueing to see her show, from bloggers, to photographers, magazines etc. I got to see the show which was incredible but many others didn’t get in because it was full. That’s crazy! Imagine cueing in the cold for hours and not getting in even though you have an invitation.

Pam’s show was phenomenal: colourful with a punk attitude. You can see the looks from her show here.
Now onto my oufit for the first day. I went for an androgynous look with a checked blazer, cropped jeans and these amazing white mule from Zara’s new SS18 collection. I accessorized with gold statement earrings and carried a plastic-fantastic bag from Mango. You cannot beleive the amount of compliments I received for this tote bag and the shoes.
What do you think of my first look for #LFW?
