The Style Traveller London Fashion Week Round Up

Where? London Fashion Week

Exactly? 180 The Strand which is the LFW HQ, but shows and events are spread out all over the city

Why?  Twice a year in February and September the world’s fashion industry descends upon the capital to indulge in 5 days of pure, unadulterated FASHION! From some of the world’s top designer catwalk shows, presentations, mind blowing parties to fun events dotted all over the city, London is taken over by style.

This season was no exception. Having been to fashion weeks for over 10 years I’m an old hat at how to do the shows, but I have to say every year it just gets better. This season with the aid of my very own Mercedes Benz G-Wagon (thank you so so much for that Mercedes!!!) I managed to whizz around town in record speed popping into shows, dinners, debates, presentations and parties!

As you know I attend London Fashion Week and various other fashions weeks across the globe every season, but my favourite is in my home town, London.

Special thanks to? This year I did a collaboration with Rotary Watches who gave me a gorgeous selection of time pieces to accessorise my outfits with every day! And also thanks to Mercedes Benz UK for giving me the G-Wagon for the duration of the shows. Huge thanks to my driver Lee for being a legend and getting me to the shows on time!

Keep scrolling to see what me, the girls and the G-Wagon got up to this week and my highlights from London Fashion Week…
