London Fashion Week kicks off today with some very exciting runway shows. See the complete schedule here. I am particularly interested in Sass & Bide, the Australian duo who have been showing since 200 in London. I am also interested in seeing what Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood has to offer. I am a huge Westwood fan, in particular I like her point of view when it comes to consume fashion. Don’t buys more than you need.. or something like that.
But McCartney is more the type of designer that I would wear. Her palette is rather pale, so perhaps not so suited to my complexion but I found some amazing dresses in her Autumn Winter 2010 show that I would love to get my hands on.
Another collection that you should all keep an eye out for is Ann-Sofie Back Atelje / BACK. She’s showing tonight at 20.00 CET, 19.99 GMT. She’s just brilliant! Acne are showing on Sunday 21.30 CET, 20.30 GMT, their’s is also a collection to be reckoned with!
I have been to London several times, in particular during the years that my dear husband ran a bar in Kingston-upon-Thames with his best mate and best man Gary, but I have never visited London FW, but hope that this is something I can do in the future, perhaps even next year. Instead I continue to follow the collections on NOW FASHION, a great new magazine who post pictures from some of the shows live as they happen. What a wonderful way to keep updated, from abroad.
So what have I been up to myself? Today I have been out and about; I flew to Malmö for the day to meet with a prospective client. I nearly didn’t make it as I managed to book a taxi for the wrong time, 8.00 instead of 7.00. I had just glanced the fight times and managed to get the times wrong. I arrived at Bromma Airport just when the flight took off. You can imagine I was annoyed and I felt quite foolish.
I had to book a new ticket to make it to the client, we pushed the meeting out by an hour and a half, and I met the senior management team. As soon as I finished my presentation I jumped into a taxi and headed back to the airport. Had a crappy Quiche for lunch, and struggled with my laptop before heading back to Stockholm.
Safe to say, I can’t wait for the weekend to start. Tonight I will enjoy a dinner with my family and when Pixie’s in bed, a BIG glass of red with my husband. Tonight we are going to work on his new site together.
