To think I was almost going to be late for this fashion show is un understatement. But in this case, I was fashionably late. Yes.I repeat I was fashionably late.Not because I didn’t want to be the first one to arrive except taking big steps in this beautiful pencil skirt was close to impossible. Even though I was close to the venue I didn’t trust myself to walk there. So I did the next logical thing. I decided if I was going to be there on time I would have to pull the skirt way up, walk out to the main street and hail a cab. For a moment there I thought I was in one of those old fashion movies. I showed off one of my legs as you do and hailed myself a cab. It worked! I arrived just in time to catch all the chaos that goes on backstage and interviewed a few designers. Phew !
Attending London Fashion Week is always a special experience and there is always that extra adrenaline when I’m there to back up my friend and designer Nicola Bacchilega. This time, I got the chance to hang out backstage for Oxford Fashion Show and eye the show from the front row. For this particular fashion show, I went for some color, with my jade pencil skirt, and combined it with a subtle transparent blouse. As the blouse gives a girly, somewhat ethereal look, I decided to turn things around and topped it all with a massive oversized leather jacket that screamed boy style. Mind you, the jacket is as heavy as it looks. And the leather texture complements the softness of the skirt in the best way, lending the edginess to my look. In order to compensate for showing this much skin, I styled this outfit with a choker and was good to go. Black velvet if you please.
