DAKS at LFW 2014

So onward to the show! I had my outfit all sorted before I went, unlike my friend as I didn't need the stress.

I wore my Zara coat, Topshop dress, Ash Boots, Urban Outfitters clutch and a River Island Watch with an H&M ear cuff.

So we left with our smart umbrella from the hotel and walked down the road to Somerset house to explore. It was chucking it down and my legs were absolutely freezing but as we got nearer, it was clear to see the people who were heading to the shows. Instead of the sensible wellies and thick coats, there were heeled boots and tiny tops and all manners of styles. I should have taken photos but my hands had gone completely numb and to be honest, I was slightly overwhelmed by it all!

We wandered around for a bit just to see it all but obviously we were unable to go in any of the press rooms. There were hundreds of photographers and press around, so we went to queue in which the heavens opened. Being the kind souls that we were, we huddled another girl under our umbrella to try and escape the downpour.

We headed in and took our seats, in which screams were heard behind us. We later found out it was because Rosie Fortescue and Oliver Proudlock from Made in Chelsea has entered the building.

Then the show started! It began with a video of.... which was amazing, and the music was smooth jazz that went with the classy show.

With beige coats, tartan embellishments and deep red leather, it was a very classic mix against country style which was so beautiful. On the wish list for winter is a snuggly camel coat!

We headed off afterwards for the quick shop and cocktails, then  headed back to the hotel, ready for the shopping the day after.

The experience at London Fashion Week was exciting to see the show, and I would love to be working there in the future. As a spectator it was over very quickly but to be a Street Style photographer would be the dream!

Thanks to DAKS for giving us the opportunity to go, and lets hope I can make it to the next one!
