I love structured shapes and this is exactly what I went with for the third day at London Fashion Week!
It definitely paid off, just check out the Getty Images feature!

This stunning Mary Katrantzou Silk Blend Animal Print Jacquard dress I picked up on TheCorner sale is one of my favorite pieces to date. Inspired by the signature fifties New Look silhouette and styled in deep shades of jewel-toned jacquard, Mary Katrantzou‘s A-line dress is certainly a feminine choice for dress-up. Covered in abstract animal patterning, this shimmering piece lends evening looks a touch of whimsical.
I love the ink/black silk blend with bordeaux and silver-hued jacquard pattern.

To add a notch of modern classics I matched it with Acne Studios Mape Shearling-trimmed leather biker jacket from Net-a-Porter.

Designed with a detachable, plush stone lamb aviator-inspired shearling collar, rough downtown-luxe hardware and a chunky buckled belt, is one of the most coveted wardrobe staples among It girls. I love slightly boxy cut and the asymmetric zip.

I was aiming at that extra edge so slipped into these gorgeous Alexander Wang Lys polished leather ankle boots, also from Net-a-Porter.
Not only does Wang create most coveted accessories each season, but this time he also incorporates the runaway’s utilitarian feel injecting a dose of futuristic style into otherwise, daily-wear pieces.
These super cool Lys boots are crafted from polished-leather with an exaggerated, shield-like front panel. Finished with a well-balanced ostrich-effect heel, this backless,  gorgeous pair look best with shorter hemlines.

I accessorised with the cute cream socks to offset the black sheen of the ankle boots, Jaeger black ponyskin gloves and Fendi sunglasses.

Of course, I cannot forget to mention the fabulous Mary Katrantzou glossed MVK medium cross body bag!

The design behind this bag is truly genius, it is different to anything else I have seen. I love the way the flap comes over the bag like a lid closing the box off.
The structured shape makes it ideal for on-duty dressing, so you can style it with silk blouses or statement dresses.
This timeless bag is a true homage to understated luxury, featuring panels of super clean colour-block leather and a sleek magnetic gold-tone clasp. Geometric masterpiece in my favourite hues of navy and burgundy.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Royal Fashion Day @Middle Temple Hall – LFW 2015

London Fashion Week 2015 is officially over. What a whirlwind of events it has been! Having got myself immersed in all the designer glamour, the glitz of shows and catwalks, I feel all but a bit deflated being back in the ordinary world.

What is the best way to keep these marvelous memories going but to write about what I loved the most about this superb fashion event?

In partnership with London London – for me – LFW started with Royal Fashion Day held in the historical rooms at Middle Temple Hall nearby the fashionably famous Somerset House.

For the occasion, I went head-to-toe in Alexander Wang. I paired this gorgeous Micro-paisley jacquard dress with Alexander Wang Racketeer Sling small calf hair shoulder bag and Alexander Wang
Daga stretch-mesh ankle boots.

This is Britain’s most exclusive and fashion event organised by British Fashion Council brimming with a list of world-famous designer catwalks and showrooms keeps attracting style-savvy fashion lovers looking to get their Fall/Winter wardrobe fix from over 100 of the county’s brightest and best designers.
I loved every minute at Somerset House amongst world class emerging talent and catwalk world-famous ready-to-wear designer shows spread across London.

This afternoon, in collaboration with London London, I had the pleasure to attend Temperley London Winter 2015 Collection catwalk show that I wanted to share with you today.

In 2015, Alice Temperley has entered her 15th year of business heading up this long standing independent British luxury brand. Her Winter 2015 Collection features luxurious and laid-back glamour of feminine romantic looks with monochrome and high-octane fabrics and stunning tribal inspired patterns of red, blue and gold prints.

With Sophie Dahl at the catwalk’s forefront, Temperley does not disappoint in floor sweeping floaty dresses and jumpsuits that provide an easy and elegant alternative to gowns, bold floral embroidery on velvet and opulent sheer chiffon, not to mention, the show-stopping dense matte silver sequined culotte suit.

The designer made London Fashion Week even more inclusive and accessible by putting on a runaway two pregnant models alongside models of different ages ultimately reiterating who her target audience is!
