London Fashion Week Part 1 SS15: Phannatiq + Éthologie + Basharatyan V

My First LFW Experience!

Words literally can't explain how ecstatic I was to learn that I was actually going to be taking part in London Fashion Week this year. This has been a dream of mine for years and I never thought I would ever achieve it. Everything has kicked off all of a sudden and I have been busier than I have ever been in my entire life. It's hectic but I love every single minute because I enjoy the buzzing city, looking at new trends, unique street style, luscious models and intricate designs. 

ME London, a stylish swanky hotel on Strand hosted FashionAtMELondon which featured a variety of fashion shows and presentations from designers. I was lucky enough to attend a few that I would LOVE to tell you about. Apologies for any photos that aren't too clear, I am definitely learning along the way and will undoubtedly improve on quality next time. 

Phannatiq 

For my first event to kick off LFW, I couldn't have asked for anything better. 

As a crowd gathered in the lobby of ME London, we were all wondering what to expect but nothing could prepare us for what we saw. 

We were treated to a highly original presentation outdoors where the lovely models performed in their streetwise clothing. Think freerunning, dancing and lots of impressive flips... 

The clothing was gorgeous and totally cutting-edge. I love seeing fresh ideas and the camouflage prints combined with floaty black fabrics complimented each other well. An urban edge to high-end fashion. 





Éthologie

The Éthologie show featured feminine designs with lovely patch prints and leather details. Everything was so elegant and the models looked strikingly beautiful coming down the runway. To add to the atmosphere, we all recieved a gorgeous box which bursted with fragrant aromas when you opened it and inside was the cutest wooden USB! All the details that went into this show made it the glamorous event that it was and it's no wonder that the other guests I spoke to said they enjoyed every minute.  
 






Basharatyan V

Wow. The Basharatyan V show was phenomenal! Classic glamorous fits and the colour palette was stunning- rich reds, golds, blacks. A lot of the designs were simple but it was the figure-hugging fit of the dresses and jumpsuits that made them come to life and look so seductive on the models. I must admit though, I did adore the sparkly looks and was slightly mesmerized by all the glitz and glam.
