A small selection from the Bora Aksu AW16 catwalk show that I got to attend at London Fashion Week. I loved the colour palette,  from rich reds and plums to fairy soft pinks. The dramatic surrounds of the church played it’s perfect role in this gothic/victorian inspired collection. The glossy checker board flooring was effective in bringing each piece to life.Although the collection had an influence from the victorian era it was still very modern. With high necks, sheer fabrics, lacy collars and dropped waists. Not to be taken too seriously (the bonnets) but to be inspired by. To take the pieces you love and to work them into your look your way.

I always love his designs. So much thought put into every piece. It’s always an inspiration seeing these catwalk shows. It’s not to create the exact looks but to be inspired – to find a new way when you dress. Taking note of new season colour trends -colour mixing and for putting pieces together in different ways is what it’s about.

The intricate and delicate finishing makes every piece special. There’s always a conflict within the collection with feminine floaty pieces versus a strong bold edge. Ruffles, fur,tailored jackets, laced up boots and so much more… Love love love as always Bora Aksu xx Dawn

The sun was shining for the first day of fashion week. Which meant I could wear my fancy pants. I was in two minds of how to style them. I think I wanted to dress them down with something that fell over the top of them rather then all tucked in. I wanted to make them a little more casual. Thou they look fabulous with a pretty blouse I decided to go with a sweater/ shirt combo.  It kind of dresses the trousers up but in a different way, so I’m not sure I actually accomplished what I wanted to.The collar is something I don’t usually go for.  It took a bit of getting use to. Wearing something done up is not usually my style. It’s always hard to know what to wear.  I don’t think I’m ever truly happy with my outfits. There’s always something I’d change… but I guess thats the beauty of evolving – your style grows to create the looks that suit you best.

Juggling travelling from show to show and keeping warm often means not wearing exactly what I would like. Any way enough moaning from me. The day was a great success which hasn’t always been the case. If I told you some of my fashion week stories you’d probably cry for me. But this time with a little help from my firends and family I got it to run smoothly. I made the shows I wanted and I over come my fear of the London under ground. This was great as amoungst other lovely photographers, magazine editors I got to meet a fascinating women who turned out to be a street style photographer for Barney’s New York.  Without her I probably wouldn’t of got on the tube and wouldn’t of made the shows I wanted and on time.

I’ve got lovely shots from the Bora Aksu, Felder Felder & Ryan Lo shows that I’ll share with you on here in the next day. I’d like to get everything up in one day but I’ve got three kids I’ve gotta get back to … so I’ll see you for round two soon. Have a great weekend. xx Dawn
