Gyunel SS15 LFW Catwalk

Last Friday I attended the Gyunel SS15 Show at London Fashion Week. The collection was entitled Nomadic Scorpion and many items of the collection featured the scorpion motif.  The desert theme was there in the khaki and beige pieces which had a real military feel but the collection also included some stunning maxi dresses and tailored separates in rich midnight blues and fabrics with a sheer tone in soft pinks and blue. The catwalk show itself included Yasmin and Amber Le Bon who both walked in the show and both looked stunning in their opening floor length looks.
The hair and makeup were highlights for me with sculpted cheeks and bronze eyes and hair plaited and coiled to represent the scorpion motif.
A stunning show and collection and a great end to day one of LFW.

London Fashion Week Day Two - What I Wore

Top - Topshop (Similar here)

This was my day two outfit for London Fashion Week and the one I was excited to wear as I just adore culottes. I own four pairs now and this gorgeous plum coloured pair were from Dorothy Perkins and a steal at £15 in the sale. I loved the sporty vibe of the tee from Topshop and wanted to dress it up with this beaut of a statement necklace from Wallis.
After day one I had pretty sore feet and these cleated sandals from Boohoo were my saviour. I wore them all day and they were so comfy even with lots of walking, plus they're just that bit chunkier so they can carry on into AW.
alot of people asked about my rucksack, its a mink and black design and its from New Look, it also comes in a cream grid design which you might have seen in my New Look AW14 Press Day Post. thank you to the lovely Debs for sending this beauty through for me,. it was great for fitting all my LFW essentials in.
Day two of LFW was a chilled out day of catching up with some lovely blogger ladies over lunch at Shake Shack and capturing some street style. I didn't head to any shows on Saturday but do check out my catwalk pics of both the Bora Asku and Ong-Oaj Pairam Shows on the blog already.

Ong-Oij Pairam SS15 Catwalk

Apart from Matthew Williamson, this was by far my favourite collection I saw at LFW. Held at Fashion Scout on Day One of London Fashion Week it contained shapes, fabrics and a mix of colours and prints to die for.
The palette was a mix of cool candy colours with a gorgeous lime green and lilac paired together, powder blue and grey and metallic's like gold and bronze mixed with soft pinks. The prints were quirky with bold repetitive graphic designs mixed with softer feminine florals. 
My favourite looks were the oversize softly tailored trousers with floral bralet and the stunning pleated rose pink silk dress. Plus a very cool cropped jacket in green with metallic sleeves, this was a real standout piece.
The last two looks were an amazing finale. The first a floor length printed a-line gown with strapless corset bust and the second an incredible tiered gown made up of multi candy coloured layers with a baroque style print and strapless corset top. This final dress had everyone on their feet vying to get a photo and was genuinely so beautiful.
I loved this collection, it was fun and really feminine. I loved the use of  soft colour and prints and there were so many elements of collection that I can't wait to see appearing as trends in Spring 2015.
Let me know what you think of the Ong-Oaj Pairam Collection.

Bora Asku SS15 Catwalk

The Bora Asku SS15 show was the first show of Day One at London Fashion Week. Held in the main BFC space at the centre of Somerset House it was a great way to start the day. The collection began with a palette of whites and soft blues and a gorgeous mixture of delicate sheer textures and intricately crocheted pieces too. There was a great use of layering and frills which kept everything very feminine and pretty. 
The second half of the collection evolved to a palette of blues from rich navy to the most vibrant violet blue which I adored and the pieces themselves became heavier and bolder with brocade designs and 3d crochet appliques on longer length dresses. Lace was a big theme with sheer lace sleeves and lace panels and skirts and the most amazing jewelled headress for one look.
The show stopping piece was the floor length violet blue dress with amazing lace detail down the front and full veil. It  had an incredibly eerie feel to it as it came down the catwalk. Its definitely a colour I'd love to include in my wardrobe for Spring Summer 2015.
Hair was kept very simple with a side swept long ponytail bound in fabric and 
makeup was also simple with a slight pop of colour on the lips.
Overall I really liked the collection and especially the finale when the models gathered together and travelled down the catwalk on mass.

Pop back later for my photos and review of my second show of the day Ong-Oij Pairam and some phenomenal colours and prints.
