Eccentricity and originality, are two electrifying forces that spoil all their creative juices into one and bring POWER to London Fashion week. Fashion designers in this land are seemingly effortless at pumping loads of creative energy into the atmosphere, kind of like BP pumps loads of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Yet in the case of this international matter, bi-coastal buyers, anxious editors and onlookers of the outlandish all populate and take the place of any form of pollution. London Fashion week simply puts the fascination back into fashion and creates an arena for those awe-inspiring designers to showcase their funky yet highly wearable wardrobes. Only one day shy of clashing with NYFW, I personally describe it as much more of a delicacy and business-oriented scene as opposed to it’s rivals(NYFW) over-the-top spectators arena. A huge inspiration to it’s American counter-parts, I must say London folks have the most effortless style.

Keep in mind that more then 5,000 visitors are expected to patronize LFW this year, particularly due to the high expectations of the Giles, Christopher Kane and Erdem shows. Head honchos over in these parts are probably also busy preparing for Sunday as household name and Vogue editor Anna Wintour is expected to arrive into London midday.

Yet out of all the lively recaps and cozy cocktail storys I could batter up, nothing beats the refreshing elements of a females point of view. Especially one who makes writing about London’s one-of-a-kind designs her living. Besides, I’ll be far too busy elbow rubbing w/ publicist, canoing my way through ropes of agitated doormen, and of course fighting for shots with Getty Images(lol!). So, without further ado, I bring you this London Fashion Week with new and highly-anticipated collaborations from a fresh fashion Journalist perspective by Ms. Lily Nui. 😉
