London Fashion Week Style Diary

Hello there,

I hope you are all keeping well.

As the title suggests, to kick start Belle Azzure’s adventures I decided to dive right in and get a feel for what a day in the life of a blogger at Fashion Week would feel like. So with that in mind I booked flights to London Fashion Week with my former work wifey and fellow blogger Louise Cooney. Between the manic outfit planning & detailed itinerary making it wasn’t long before I got a taste for how fast paced yet highly infectious the Fashion industry is. The amount of research and organisation that goes into something that appears so refined on the outside is astonishing. I found myself alternating between moments of madness, resembling Monica from Friends, scrambling for her wedding dress whistles at the ready, to moments of euphoria feeling like Carrie Bradshaw from Sex & The City standing in her manolo blahnik’s waiting patiently for her next Fashion Show.

As a whole my experience really was pinch worthy from start to finish. From being afforded the opportunity to see clothing trends ahead of time, to being dolled up on a weekday, nibbling on macaroons, and running to shows with my best friend. You really couldn’t ask for more.  That being said, reflecting on the weekend, something that struck a chord with me the most was the undeniable hunger, passion and energy felt amongst the young designers. Loitering around Brewer Street, the main site for London Fashion Week was for me the most rewarding as it gave me a sense of where it all began for many of the top fashion designers. For me it stripped away the glitz and glam and gave me an insight into the roots of Fashion Week and the hard work and determination that is required starting out in the industry. Something that is undoubtedly relatable in a lot of other industries.  

Despite the tired eyes and aching feet, the hustle & bustle of the weekend was infectious and I would advise any fashion fanatic out there to go and experience it for themselves. 

Outfits varied across the weekend. What I loved about Fashion Week was that anything goes. Think of the type of outfit you wish you could wear during the day and wear it! For many of us women that usually includes heels, if they didn’t tear our feet apart!!

Next stop Paris Fashion Week I think!

Stay Stylish,

Belle Azzure
