I am super lucky to have been invited to London Fashion Week this year and what fun it was! I was about on Friday and it was amazing being around such stylish people, there were so many incredible outfits everywhere.
The inspiration for my outfit came from this Faux Fur Collar Coat by Topshop. I fell in love with this coat a few weeks ago and when I was vintage shopping in Brick Lane I had the idea of making my own version of it. I bought this black and white faux fur collar above for just a tenner from a little market and decided to pin it to my Boohoo duster jacket and voila! It’s completely vamped up my simple coat.
With such loud outerwear, I kept my outfit underneath simple and just paired a white H&M t-shirt with my trusty USC leather shorts. I love bringing fur and leather together, they’re my favourite textures. Finally I threw on my Topshop boots to complete my look and create a bit of a gothic feel.
Being front row at the Ong-Oaj Pairam show was absolutely incredible. This season’s designs boasted layered dresses, flowing ballgowns and a kaleidoscope of pastel hues. Pairam’s Spring/Summer ’15 collection was inspired by his childhood in Nakhon Ratichasima, growing up alongside his family’s factory and he showcases this in his merge of both functional and hedonistic fashion. The combination of florals, oriental patterns and silks were also resonant of Pairam’s signature ‘East meets West’ style.
My time at London Fashion Week was all I wished it would be and more! I can only hope that this is just the beginning of things to come…
