London Fashion Weekend

Marking the end of the glamour that is London Fashion Week, London Fashion Weekend has taken over Somerset House giving all the fashionistas out there one final farewell to the runway.

I headed over to check out the catwalk and the plethora of shops - and really enjoyed it! The catwalk was a great overview of trends that'll be emerging this spring summer - with Holly Folton showcasing studio 54-style dresses, short hem lines, and embellishment giving the line a real 70's luxe feel.

The Prim Rose show was all about lace and collared dresses with fitted silhouettes and pastels giving the runway a 50's feel. I love the fact pastels are taking the place of block colour this summer - I find them a lot more wearable and pretty.

Antipodium showcased floral prints with waists accentuated by belts while Game On (as the name suggests) rocked the runway in wearable sports luxe - a trend I'm still a little unsure about.

The finale was a collection by Jasper Conran whose garments had a much freer feel whilst the lower hemlines cemented the range as a more mature twist on the trends we've seen for the coming season.

Toni & Guy did the hair for each of the catwalk shows, and it was one of my favourite aspects! They noted the three key hair trends of the season; tousled braids, sweeping locks and the top knot - each of which I love!

Here are a few snaps I took whilst looking around the designer's stalls. Is anyone else heading down this weekend?

Benefit had a gorgeous brow bar!

Love a bit of Cowshed!
