Pure London Trade Show & Fashion Week Blog by Leanne Lim-Walker

The week of the 10th Jan was rather a busy week for myself! I got to attend Pure London Trade show with The Blogger Programme along with a couple of other bloggers. It was a great chance to meet brands and see the new up coming collections. There were over 700 brands showcasing a variety of different products, shoes, bags, clothes, jewellery and more!

I spied lots of pastel colours, patterns and prints. Dresses with collars have always been a favourite of mine and also matching sets.

This collar dress by Fearne Cotton available at Very is so adorable, I love the mix of patterns, it really adds something different to a classic dress shape.

This Jacket and trouser set available at Very certainly caught my attention! I have lots of matching tops and bottoms, and love the idea of a matching jacket and bottoms!

So then came along Friday as quick as a flash and I was lucky enough to have a pass for Fashion Week and was filmed for German TV!

Like nothing I’d experience before, walking around Somerset House and people wanting to take my picture all the time. The surrealist thing to say the least!

It was my first time at London Fashion Week, I didn’t even know where to go! Luckily they had the most helpful Men & Women dressed in Christopher Raeburn capes to help out and keep us dry with their sturdy umbrellas.

I attended the Bora Aksu show and was in love with his collection! The garments were so feminine and wearable. The colours, textures and patterns were just perfect. I was just so in love with the models’ hair, I tried doing something similar myself for a recent blog post here.

A recurring feature in his garments were collars, such a versatile element to an outfit. Make more of a statement with one by layering a jumper over the top with the collar peeping out and adding a necklace to complete the look.

After the show I caught up with some blogger friends and kept out of the rain. Later that evening we went to the Pam Hogg’s show. The atmosphere was electric and the collection was very bold and colourful! My favourite items were the bridal pieces with more of a neutral colour patellate and sky high veils.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my time at Pure and LFW!

Leanne’s blog posts & youtube videos are some of my favourites to read and watch lately, especially her fashion hauls! I definitely need to take a closer peek at Fearnes collection, it looks so fresh and wearable! Being a fellow blogger & youtuber myself (see http://www.i2style.co.uk) posts like this give me inspiration to work even harder to pursue my passions in Fashion and perhaps one day I’ll be able to be a part of something so rewarding, with yourselves, Very!
