I spent the day looking around the London Fashion Week exhibition. On the one hand it was just an amazing experience to be surrounded by people who are as obsessed with clothes as I am. But to be honest I thought most of the labels on display were ok but nothing special. Only some of the ethical labels which I know already (such as Veja or People Tree) had stuff I really liked, plus the new generation designers, I mean how could I not love Felder.Felder or Louise Goldin! I also spent a long time cooing at the Melissa shoe stand, could I please have their entire AW09 collection?
I had my picture taken a few times by street style bloggers, which was quite simply amazing. The awkward teenage girl inside me who never dared dressing the way she wanted for fear of looking even more out of place definitely had a moment of pure joy there.
My friend Irma (above) had made this amazing midnight blue dress for me after a 40s pattern. I just love it!
