I was backstage with Amanda Wakeley where I did a little takeover for their snapchat & then watched their AW16 show which was fun!
It was such a nice atmosphere before the show – Very well organised, not too crowded and people were friendly and informative. I have been to a few shows backstage where it is been a very different aura to say the least but it really was a pleasure.
The show was immaculate, the models walking by oozed an understated but unmistakable modern-woman strength and confidence.
What caught my eye most were shoulder-baring dresses and and intricate sequin pieces matched with black sky-high wedge heels – Obsessed!
I was lucky enough to be dressed in Amanda Wakeley for the show and I have to say I felt immediately comfortable in this outfit, the fabrics are thick are luxurious and I love a wide leg trouser, especially in a bright white.
I didn’t do too much for Fashion week this winter because coming back from Mauritius and being thrown into such a different world was a little shell-shocking, I don’t adjust well right away from coming back from anywhere to be honest, I stay in a little ‘travel-bubble’. Not being particularly down, but more like…what? Why am I back here? Very odd!
I am feeling pumped with inspiration though, even after this one day and that is an even better feeling than being on holiday, the push to be actively creative.
