I confess, day one was a bit of a Gaussian blur. Sure, I’d been out during fashionweeks in the past (you know, out for groceries, out to take the trash out… LFW Day 1: Pick up dry cleaning) but to be on the front line where the designers’ fabric children march out to meet the world was a brand new experience, such a privilege. It took me a while to digest the circus outside the show tents – by circus I mean a troupe of entertainers: “dressed” and well-dressed, trendy and trendless, exhilarating and at times, hilarious. Oh in the best sense possible of course. These photos do absolutely no justice to what a fun fair Somerset House is during the day, if you’re in London feel free to pop down and see it for yourself; if not, you could give me a digital slap and next time I’ll get a grip and take more photos.

Oh yes, bumped into loads of bloggers similarly milking the scene - Platform Princess Jackie, Daniella from The F Blog, Aindrea from Fashionista du Jour, Jennifer from the Style Crusader, and of course the bubbly Jill from Street Style London who was bouncing around frothing up the place. Great to have met you, comrades.

  5. I love the girl with the crocheted hair piece and fuzzy sweater, everything about her look is awesome. The blue of the sweater and caramel colored gloves compliment each other really nicely.

  27. Oh, Shini, I just saw this! Hilarious!! I’ve got to tell my husband about the ‘frothing up the place’ line. When we were first together, in NY, he used to call me ‘Evil Tinkerbell’ behind my back because I was always flitting around, causing mischief.

    You are just brilliant. I didn’t realise this was your first time seeing shows, too. You’re a very old soul. I feel EXACTLY the same as you about it, and keep encouraging people to just show up. All these years, I assumed it was some kind of elitist fashionista group that I had no interest in. Who knew: it’s just made up of mostly smart, funny, creative People Like Us ; )

    Let’s rest up & plan to meet again very soon.

  28. Hi Shini,

    I’ve been reading your blog for yonks and have never thought to comment – silly me! I love this piece of internet heaven; your photographs are always fantastic and I can only dream of having your kind of style… *sigh* one day, one day…

    Keep blogging, I’ll be reading!
