So as I told you in my last post I won tickets to The Look Show, so me and my friend Daisy lose our heads ...What to wear? Who will be there? We were so excited and we weren't disappointed. The show was held at the Victoria house, Bloomsbury square which I usual pass on my way to Camden so I found it easily and while waiting to get in and waiting for Daisy I met Gem, Michelle, Victoria and Lily (who are all so nice and we had such a laugh). We were all really excited and it didn't take long before we were inside. The room was buzzing, at the front there were a hoard of photographers waiting for all the celebrates to turn up and did they, at the other end was the bar with waiters wearing Hawaiian shirts, which made it feel like summer already (if only) and the champagne was flowing.
We were all chatting and than stopped, all of a sudden the photographers went flash mental and I can't blame them, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Marina Diamandis and Olivia Palermo were posing for photos and giving interviews. I managed to get some photos I was lucky enough to get one with the gorgeous Marina who had thee cutest jumper on ever ! I forgot my self and had a little chat with her pretty surreal but amazing as I love her so much and she looked stunning. There was a chocolate fountain and heaps of food flowing around the room, I also met Sara and Kavita but as they were going to be blogging for the show were rushed off their feet (it was great to meet you ladies, short but sweet). I was so happy to see thee amazing Arieta Mujay who is PR rep for River Island I adore her style and always watch her vlogs for the website (style crush) I dragged her off to have a photo she is even cooler in real life and The Look show where taking street style shoots and asked me *blush ..I bet I look like a total nerd in them, but anyway.
Aww me and Daisy chatted with two lovely girls from Dorothy Perkins (sorry I forgot your names) please comment with your names so I can put them under your photo, I felt at home soaking up all the fashion ! Also met the wonderful Carina who is a blogger and PR rep for Wildfox, she was such a sweetheart and I still don't know where she found the energy to go to London Fashion Week after (what's your secret?) it was mental and than came the show.
Me and Daisy where sat in row B, and when we sat down there was a goody bag by our feet (I'll show you in another post) it has fab goodies in. Me and Daisy were having a chat than all of a sudden flashing bulbs where going off right left and centre, sitting across from us front row where Keisha Buchanan, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Jamie Winstone, Melanie Blatt and Olivia Palermo !! Yes our eyes where falling out and so the show began, it was just amazing and with each collection me and Daisy where drooling over each other. I think all the collections where stunning (you can shop them here), and offered a style this season for everyone it was also great to see curvy models strutting there stuff. Petra Nemcova looked beyond goddess like in a french connection dress, and me and Daisy were taking note of what all the celebs had on in the front row (Olivia in H&M). The show finished with a killer performance from Alexis Jordan, who is stunning and I want her hair so badly and her voice (I recorded a little of the performance for you lot)
The lovely Arieta Mujay
The gorgeous DP girl's
I love you Marina, please have my babies
My camera was crap and I just could not get the photos I wanted from the catwalk, but I will be doing another post and I will have the catwalk photos from the show so you lovely lot can see. I also have some catwalk video (only short and sweet) but I can still share them with you. Sorry this post is uber long, but so much happened in such a short time, anyway I had an amazing day and it was funny trying to squeeze into the photo booth with the girls (major fail on my part) and me and Gem had a laugh having to use the guy's toilets haha they did not mind. I just want to say thank you to Uniqlo for the tickets and I really hope I win some for next year.
I will be doing another post tomorrow, so don't worry you will see what goodies I got etc. Thank you for staying with me and sorry I have been slow on the blog this week, I hope this makes up for it.
