Vodafone London Fashion Weekend - February 2014

My sister and I visited Vodafone London Fashion Weekend on Sunday 23 February and I must stress how much of a great time we had - in actual fact we always have a great time there. This year I particularly enjoyed the Trends catwalk, which has given me a lot of inspiration for future post. I'm totally in love with all things floral at the moment and have always been a fan of the sports luxe style (especially the varsity look), so was thrilled when I saw models strutting down the catwalk in these two trends. Another trend I've got my eye on is Metallics - so the showcase of Percious Metals was also enjoyed. I guess I've now got enough style inspiration to last me for the next month or so, hey, maybe even longer - who knows?! 
As well as attending the catwalk, I had a nose around at some of the discounted items - yes, that's another reason why I like to attend, because many designers give special discount to attendees - which is great for a shopaholic like me. Though,I would advise going on the Thursday, as the first attendees always get the best picks. 

Free Maybelline nail polish for Vodafone customers - I'm a happy lady!

My sister and I had a fun time in Sunglass Hut, trying on all different pairs of sunglasses. I instantly fell in love with a pair by Dolce & Gabbana, but could not justify spending so much, especially when London hardly ever gets any sunshine. However, I guess I've got enough time until Summer to reconsider buying it. 

There were quite a few industry talks in the Vodafone Lounge. We were able to attend a talk by Grace Woodward who spoke about becoming a fashion stylist - she was very inspirational and gave a lot of good advice. There was also a talk on becoming a fashion photographer - which has encouraged me to hunt for a new canon camera. Though I get decent enough photos done with my simple handy camera, I know it's definitely worth investing in something a little more professional - especially if you're a fashion or beauty blogger - image quality is everything.

Check out some of my pics from the event, hopefully it inspires you to go to the Autumn Winter event.
