London Fashion Week with my friend Afua is becoming a tradition I really like. We get the most joke, look at fabulous fashion and drink loads of Prosecco, perfect right?! This season we ate loads of food, drank even more Prosecco (if that is even possible) and Uber was our saviour.
On Saturday we started the day at Library, for the Little Shilpa presentation. This is the second time I have been to a fashion in motion event and it didn’t disappoint. The presentation was almost like a mad hatters tea party with cupcakes, tea sets and of course fascinating hats. The models wore plain denim tops and skirts so it was clearly all about the headpieces. The models slowly moved around the bar, going up and down the stairs and some were even having tea together but they didn’t speak, it was strange but very cool. Little Shilpa made me feel like I was in the Alice in Wonderland cartoon.
A few cupcakes later we jumped in an Uber and stopped by the Oxo Tower for the Nubian Nights Out, NNO Presents exhibition, Who Taught You? I have been to this exhibition before but I had to go and support my friend Cherrelle and her team again. You can read my review here. This exhibition means a lot me me because it celebrates women, makes me feel confident and totally empowered. Check the site for more details.
This visit turned into a social meet up because I had a quick catch up with my friend Cherrelle and I finally bumped into another friend, Cherrelle Skeete. This Cherrelle is an actress from Birmingham (my home town) doing her thing on TV and she has just finished a show called 3 Days in the Country at the National Theatre. I went to see her show on the final night last Wednesday, it was awesome.
After all the talking and laughing it was on to the Moixa show at the Grand Connaught Rooms. I took my VIP seat on the front row (FROW) to view this incredible collection. Moixa SS16 is stunning, intricate and wearable, you can read my review here. It was so lovely to see my friend Remel London at this show too. Remel is a TV and radio presenter extraordinaire.
All this drinking, FROWing and talking made us hungry so I suggested Chicken Shop as it was walking distance from the last show and sometimes you just need chicken. I have been there a few times before so check my review here.
I’d like to thank Uber for getting us from A-B (use my code phai9 for £10 off your first journey) asos for my outfit and Afua for making me laugh all day. You can see all my LFW foolishness by searching #ItsastylethingLFW on social media.
