For me and Georgina, London Fashion Week (20th – 24th of February) started already at Thursday, with a full day spent at the most beautiful venue at The Chelsea Old Town Hall. The Catwalk Edit is a full day LFW event, showcasing 60 (!) brands over 8 catwalks, one every hour. Since there were so many different brands doing the catwalks there, I will not do a post on each of them (like I will do with the Friday catwalks), so instead here is a long post with a bunch of photos, summarizing the whole day.

We started the day quite early, meeting up for lunch at Joe & The Juice where we enjoyed some fresh food and drinks, preparing for the day filled with fashion shows. While sitting inside the cute café, I looked across the street where something quickly caught my eye. As you can see from my expression on the photograph above, I was more than excited when I realized there was a whole block of colorful houses right across the street, so we just had to head over and take some photos. We ended up doing some street outfit photos, even though it started raining heavily and it was quite cold outside. I will share the rest of these photos, showing my whole outfit for the day, later this weekend.

When we arrived for The Catwalk Edit, after a bit of confusion about where to go and what was going on, we went into the hall where the catwalks where, and sat down for our first show. Every hour there was a new show, and every show showcased a specific category. The photos above only show a incredibly small percentage of all the amazing clothes and brands we saw there, and a few details from the beautiful venue itself. Most of the brands from the catwalks also had small “stands” where some of their items were hanging, and you could talk to someone from the brand. This was really great for bloggers like us, who could have a chat with the designers and give out and receive business cards for further work in the future.

There was really a lot to look at in-between shows, but it was also really nice to just sit down, listen to the great music and wait for the next catwalk to happen. Even though there were some (major) delays and technical difficulties, the shows were truly great, and the models were really good at keeping their faces straight. The models got a new styling for (almost) every show, and I really fell in love with one of the last shows, where they had soft subtle curls paired with the beautiful lingerie they were wearing. Even though the shows sometimes gave me a bit more of a S/S vibe than A/W, mostly because of the amount of big printed and colorful swim wear, sports wear and other items, the day had a lot of good to offer, and it was amazing to see that many different brands on the course of one day.
