Pastel coloured balloons arched over the catwalk of the Meadham Kirchhoff show this afternoon creating a candy coloured paradise. Before it even began Spice Girls was playing and that was enough to get people cheering. In no way was I prepared for what was about to happen…
To begin, a group of impassioned dancers filled the center of the catwalk. They powdered their chests and applied lipstick before throwing themselves into a wild performance. Like rag dolls their limbs were thrown around into a can-can dance of the most unusual variety. While this was taking place the collection was shown. I struggled to know where to focus (as a result, so did my camera) because there was so much to look at and so much movement.
After the first group scurried off a new set of dancers took to the stage. Only these were young ballerinas and their arrival signaled the beginning of a far more regal and avant-garde collection than what was first shown. It was incredible. A show like nothing I’ve seen before. It was playful, imaginative, and perfectly executed all at the same time.
It would be one thing if I had a private car to drop me at the door of every show… I’d wear heels all the time and be fabulous every day. I’d never have a hair out of place. But, the truth is fashion week isn’t that easy. You’re standing all day, waiting in lines, running after people to shoot and squatting to get the right angle. I’m not complaining – just explaining why my outfits are progressively getting more casual.Wore these maroon Zara trousers that I snatched up for 25 quid. Totally love them. Only got home to find they’ve split at the side. Umm, Zara?! Get your shizz together. They aren’t even too tight (I promise). Have had a lazy morning, need to get myself together and out of the house. It’s Meadham Kirchoff and Aminaka Wilmont today and the last day for womenswear.
Grey zip jacket and Celine two-toned clutch… yes please.
Caroline and Daniel from Stockholm Street Style - skinny black trousers and monochrome animal print boots.
Jennifer from Style East – slouchy beanie, cable knit, and a leather skirt. Autumn wardrobe sorted.

Desperate for a jumper just like this: cream, baubles and cable knit - oh my.
A moment of rest…
