London Fashion Week 09/18

Hello!

You might be wondering if there’s a typo in my title, but no, this post is indeed about London Fashion Week that happened almost a year ago.

The thing is, with what happened in my blog (long story short, I’ve unfortunately lost ALL of my previous posts), I can’t recall if I’d written this post yet or not. Honestly, I can’t remember anything this day. Maybe I am getting old.

Anyway, if I’d written about this event previously, I thought I should just restore it here again as my first fashion post in this blog. A year back is probably the maximum I should recap for fashion related. Longer than that would be unnecessary, wouldn’t it?

I’d received about three invitations for that season, but because I was unwell at the time, I only managed to go to one event (due to different days and places).

The only one that I went to was Minki, by the designer Minki Cheng. It was on Sunday, 16th September 2018. You may look at more pictures that I took during the presentation of his SS19 collection, here (just had to make a post of its own).

After Minki’s presentation, I headed down to Dover Street while Victoria Beckham’s show was going on at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac – next to her flagship store. I had nothing to do at the time, so I went there to hunt for some street fashion.

Not long after, David Beckham and his children came out. But due to my fangirling shock (shamelessly had to admit), my pictures of them turned out very disappointingly blurry. Oh, well.

I used to cut out Victoria Beckham’s outfits and styles from the magazines back then. I adored her fashion sense, but I had to say, my favouritism towards her upon seeing her in real life for the first time that day had been totally revised. Personality wise, she’s not as admirable as I wanted to think of her. Sadly. Fashion wise though, she’s still there amongst my favourites. Her minimalist style had always won me over.

I’ve had few hours left while waiting for Dad to pick me up, so I walked towards Regent’s Street. Every time I saw Burberry flagship store, I just had to make a visit. It is my favourite brand after all.

At that time, the store was having a newly re-imagined concept and I remember having an unsure thoughts about the new logo and designs, as Riccardo Tisci became the new creative director of Burberry. He had seem to be making a whole lot of changes to the brand, but I was yet to see more of his collection then.

The store at the time was also having an installation by a British artist, Graham Hudson called Sisyphus Reclined – an architectural scaffold in the middle of the store, towering up to three stories nearly reaching up the ceiling.

Above picture was me at the top of the scaffold, standing at the centre of 80 (yes, eighty) cameras that could capture me in 3D and be made into a Styrofoam sculpture by a robot on the ground level.

Despite my fever, I had a great time touring around the “new” store thanks to one of the staff, Alex.

My OOTD: White shirt from Muji, Checkered palazzo pants from Yesstyle, black coat (mine is called masculine and seems to be out of stock) from Zara, shoes from Converse.

Thank you for reading!

May you have happy thoughts always,
Ain

    I always thought Fashion week would be a fun and exciting experience – especially to see all the designers and their latest creations! I particularly like Victoria Beckham’s fashion lines – they just look so classy!

    I would LOVE to do a fashion week one day. New York would be the dream. Iโ€™d probably end up spending so much money on things I would never wear though! Amazing that you go to see the Beckhamโ€™s. Very jealous!! Xx

      Oh yes, attending New York Fashion Week is a dream of mine too!
      Aw hun, don’t be. It was really exciting at first, but because of Victoria’s unfriendliness, the feeling faded away pretty fast.
      Thank you for reading this post! xx Ain

    I love the trousers you’re wearing! London Fashion Week is so far out of my comfort zone but it looks like an amazing experience. Victoria is so stylish. But I’ve heard she’s actually really friendly and fun in real life, out of the spotlight x

      Thank you, Jenny! Maybe she is, but on that day, there was a fan of hers standing at the front of the barrier for hours – just to get a sign from her. But when she got out, she just walked straight past and only turned once as soon as she got in her store. I guess I just got a bit disappointed, but oh well. Thank you for reading this post! x
