london fashion week, my time so far.

PhotobucketHere is a jumble of my favourite photographs from my first two days at London Fashion Week. Unfortuately due to me feeling rather ill and just generally being rather forgetful, I didn't take as many photos as I hoped to, including that of some of my favourite bloggers, but I'm very happy with how my pictures turned out. I've had a lovely time so far, though I have to say that I haven't enjoyed myself quite as much as I hoped to. I sometimes felt quite out of place and unconfident (but I suppose that's expected with me, isn't it?), but nevertheless, what an experience to attend such an event! I'd definately attend in future seasons, hopefully I'll see some more of you there (please, hehe)!

My first ever LFW catwalk show (and the first of the season) was Paul Costelloe. Unfortunately I am not the best catwalk photographer, but please do look at his collection, it was simply beautiful. I adored the models candy-floss hair, plus the plenty of oversized bows, girly dresses, pastel colours and biker jackets that made an apperance throughout. I also got some great freebies from the Mac makeover room, which I'm looking forward to trying out!

Along with all of the bloggers I photographed, I spent my time with many others, including Adele from Moltocuriosa (so glad I finally got to meet her before she moves to Italy), Daniela from Couture and Crumpets, Kristabel from I Want You to Know, Ashanti from Adorngirl, Jen from Styleeast, Geneva from A Pair and a Spare and Sarah from We Shop Therefore We Are (so gutted I forgot to take a picture of her in her beautiful Topshop coat). I didn't go to London Fashion Week yesterday or today as I'm still feeling rather ill, but hopefully I'll be well enough to pop by tomorrow and on Wednesday to have another peek at the exhibitions and take a few more photographs. Love, Jazzabelle.

  1. Fantastic pictures. Very jealous you managed to get there! I'm going to try and get there for the AW11 collections, how do you apply?
    That picture Jill took of you is lovely by the way, you look so fresh and natural. And the cupcakes-yum!

  4. It looks so amazing, a shame you weren't feeling your best! I'd love to be able to attend in a future years.

  5. lydia, i applied on the london fashion week website as press, if you get accepted it allows you to attend shows (which you have to seperately apply for) and visit the exhibitions. though you can attend without a pass, you have great fun sitting in the courtyard taking pictures, people watching and drinking coffee!

    thank-you victoria and mat! x

  7. those are great photos! sorry to hear you didn't get to enjoy yourself as much as you could, i would probably feel the same way, kind of like a little fish in a big pond...but seems like you had fun!

  9. You got such gorgeous photos - even though you didn't go as much as you wanted, they totally sum up the weekend. I wish I'd got to spend more time with you though :((

    Cam't wait for next season - going to apply SO early to all the shows. I want to go to PPQ!!! Did I mention on my previous comment how much I liked your LFW look, the maxi with t-shirt? Perfection, you looked like one of the models x

    ReplyDelete
  17. thank-you elle, my boots are from debenhams! they cost around £60, so quite pricey for me, but i thought i would spent the rest of the birthday money my dad gave to me. x

  18. These shots are gorge, I especially like the one from the PPQ show. I love your maxi/tee understated chic combo.
    Thanks for your lovely comment. Sorry if I was a bit offish when I saw you on the second day. I literally just had my ring stolen and had been crying for an hour!

  19. I'm happy to hear that you're feeling a bit better and I'd definitely would love to go to the v&a with you! It'd be an honor to have you as a tour guide! I really love that picture of the wedges! And Saskia is beautiful in that picture! Well, actually I love all of them! xxx

  20. Oh that is so sweet.

    This is a beautifully edited post, Jazmine: it could be a magazine spread. I'm so sorry you've been home sick & hope you'll feel well enough to come tomorrow. If it will make you feel any better, it really does go by so fast and there's never enough time to see and do everything. I haven't even yet gone inside the exhibitions!! And besides there's still Wednesday - boy's day - which is sad cause it's like the last day of school, but also quite special if you can make that.

    Running out of power - just posted for Next -and falling asleep as I type, but just had so say how lovely this post is, and YOU are. Feel better and only come if you're well: you still packed a lot into your experience. xox
