RIP: Oscar de la Renta

OdlR-WeddingToday is a very sad day in the fashion world. Legendary designer Oscar de la Renta has unfortunately passed away after his long battle with cancer. He will be remembered as an incredible man with the most exquisite designs. Dressing the wifes of 4 American Presidents, and most of the Hollywood industry, the world has now suffered a great loss. Through so many years, his designs have been the definition of Hollywood glamour.

London Fashion Week

Today my sister and I went to London Fashion Week (aaaahhh, its so exciting!!). After a rocky morning, and arriving at the venue pretty late (London tube delays..), we were escorted like VIP’s into the catwalk room.

We started off with the Marks anmarchesa9d Spencer show, which we had won tickets to. It was such a beautiful winter collection with luxurious coats, beautiful dresses, and of course, lots of fur vests.

We then had a photoshoot with Canon, who also showed something really cool, a 4D experience. We had to put on special glasses, and it was like we were on the runway. It was the most bizarre but cool thing ever. Then we had a mini makeover by Maybelline, who glammed us up.

Then the highlight of the day, the Marchesa Notte show. I honestly could not contain my excitement!! The Marchesa gowns are such luxurious, glamorous, gorgeous, pieces of art. Paired with Christian Louboutins, it could not have been more perfect. If only I had the occasion, and the budget of course to own one of those dresses… (a girl can dream right?)

It was such an amazing experience to be surrounded by such iconic designer pieces, marchesa1being pampered by amazing makeup artists, having our photographs taken, and going home with two goody-bags. If you do ever have the chance to go to an event like this, I highly recommend going!! I had an absolute ball whilst photographing the event, and I hope you enjoy some of the pictures.

Have a great weekend 🙂
