As I opened my wardrobe and saw row of jackets staring at me expectantly, I experienced a mild panic. It was a classic case of “having nothing to wear”, full closet and an empty head devoid of any ideas. I closed the wardrobe. “I’ll think about it tomorrow” I told myself in Scarlett O’Hara style.
You see, I’m supposed to be packing for Paris Fashion Week. I promised myself that I’ll be trying on clothes to decide what I’m wearing to the shows and nail it with thought through accessories. I need five expertly put together outfits showcasing my style, making me look good yet still me.
How do other bloggers do that? Instagram accounts of household names at the fashion week are full of next season pieces which are impossible to get hold of as their clothes won’t hit the shops for at least 6 months yet. How to find original, never seen before pieces? It finally dawned on me when I was watching a show of emerging London designers during London Fashion Week. I was marveling at a cut and detail of an olive green midi skirt and thinking how wonderful it would look with Chloe boots next winter, when I realised that the answer to my question was staring me in the face. London young, brilliant designers are my way to go. It may be too late for it this time but watch this space comes September, when the next Paris Fashion Week rolls around.
