#TbeautyblogdoesLFW - Frolicking on the Frow of Bernard Chandran

Pandemonia on the Frow too

Yesterday was surreal, something I had always dreamed of came true. I went adventuring off to London Fashion Week and I had so many incredible and unique experiences.

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get some backstage invites from Toni & Guy for Hema Kaul and Ashley Isham. I was a little eager when arriving at Freemasons hall and I arrived right at the start of the call time, which meant everything was still being set up, so we had some time to kill. Rose (a very lovely and AMAZING pr girl for Toni & guy) was guiding us about, asked if we wanted to watch Bernard Chandran sitting on the FROW with her while we wait, the obvious answer was yes!!! I had an amazing view of the AW14/15 collection. Toni & Guy did not style this hair but I will be writing about them in the next part of these posts.

The show started with some clanging of symbols and drum beats, the lights went dark and it began.

I have to say I am impressed with this collection. In my mind it captures the evolution of the working woman, embracing and celebrating that the emancipation of ladies, the colourful tailored leather suits and dresses inspired by tuxedos with hints of bright blue, pink and green showed the femininity of women and the leather and more muted shades of brown, grey and black reflect the fact women are just as capable as men and can be as harsh as them too. It's a feminist way to look at it I know!
I am in love with these shoes, they look sleek and elegant and more importantly they look comfy, the fine detail that has gone into each dress and design is definitely shown and you can really see the care, love and attention that has made this collection happen.
Each model had contoured cheeks, hair in a half up half down style, nude lips and nude nails. It was elegant and minimalist it didn't take anything away from the clothes only complimented them.

By the look on everyone's faces the show looked like a success! I must to say I was blown away with this "sexy mod attitude with menswear inspired tailoring" collection.
A leather cape! I think I need this in my life!
