My London Fashion Week Wishlist

Bruno Mars once sang ‘I wanna be a billionaire so freaking bad’ and this post is my ode to the lack of billionaire funding in my life. Whilst I can wallow in my student life, where Primarni is the most fashionable place I can afford, listed below are the five fashion gems I would snatch up at London Fashion Week if I had the bank account of a model, designer or ‘It’ gang member.

Number One- TV bust bralet (Ashley Williamson)

LFW 1

Her debut show saw a collection inspired by the Age of Aquarius, East meets West, and the cola printed dresses, thigh split pencil skirts and slogan printed slip dresses which were all  supported by a FROW of ‘It’ girl crushes including Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof. The TV bralet makes me want to unleash my inner Marina Diamandis.

Number Two- Cropped Crochet Top (House of Holland)

LFW 2

Henry Holland has always had a profound effect on the way I (attempt to) dress, and his flower power extravaganza featuring crochet tops, embellished dresses and psychedelic patterned jackets has tested my Coachella vibes aesthetic to a whole new level. This crochet cropped top makes me want to feel like every day is a day for fancy dressing!

Number Three- Ball Gown (Sorapol)

LFW 3

When I first saw the collection I imagined a mood board consisting of Marie Antoinette, Black Swan and culture, which isn’t too far off the inspiration of contemporary African culture meets French Revolution. The collection, ranging from pastel to tribal prints, embellished jackets, and bold head pieces is eye grabbing, fascinating and fit for royalty.

Number Four- ENTIRE OUTFIT (Tom Ford)

AH finally, a collection comprising almost entirely of all black outfits so that I can unleash my billionaire witch look onto the world. Sheer shirts, sequined dresses and leopard print heels all strutted along the runway of Tom Ford’s SS15 show.

Number Five- Patterned Skirt (Sibling)

LFW 5

Channeling 80’s New York Chic and continuing House of Holland’s crochet, flower power theme, Sibling injected fun into their collection. Bows, oversized jumpers and crochet dresses paraded the fancy dress fashion to a whole new level, and made me want to unveil my inner Madonna, Debby Harry, Sex and the City chic to the world.
