My London Fashion Week with Mercedes Benz

Where? London Fashion Week

When? February 2017

Why? As you already know I’m a huge fan of fast, fabulous cars, so when Mercedes Benz asked me if I’d like to be driven around London Fashion Week this season in the super cool G-Wagon G63 AMG, you can imagine my excitement.

So I enlisted to the help of my friends and fellow influencers Lorna Luxe and Ella Catliff to join in the fun! Our mission was to take London Fashion Week by storm and enjoy it as much as humanly possible!! Not too hard then :)

Complete with our own amazing driver, the wonderful Nick, who made sure we were so well looked after and arrived at every show and event on time, we headed out on our mission.

Our week was jam packed full of fashion shows, presentations, parties, dinners at cool new restaurants, like the Ivy Soho and Sexy Fish in Mayfair, as well as doing shoots and filming interviews with designers in the back of the G-Wagon. Not too hectic then!

Not being ones to shy away from a party we decided to throw our very own LFW party in association with La Maison Remy Martin too!

Here’s my photo diary of the best Fashion Week I’ve ever had (and I’ve been to a lot!!)
Thank you so much Mercedes-Benz, you guys rock!

Big thank you to photographer Jay McClaughlin and Olympus Cameras for the beautiful shoot imagery and providing a base at #PenQuarters during the shows.

The Soiree with La Maison Rémy Martin.

On the Monday evening of fashion week Lorna, Ella and I were very lucky to be able to host a LFW party at the new Rémy Martin pop-up bar on Wardour Street. The night was super fun, filled with 100 of our favourite fashion friends, influencers and models. See the Rémy post for full details and guest list, link below.

That was without doubt the most fun I’ve ever had at London Fashion Week. Thank you so much to my squad Lorna Luxe, Ella Catliff and Phil MacHugh our publicist during the shows.

And a huge thank you to Mercedes Benz for the fabulous G-wagon and for making it all happen.

Roll on next season!
