We asked blogger, Anouska Proetta Brandon, to tell us all about a day in the life of a blogger at London Fashion Week. Anouska’s been fashion blogging for two years, during that time she has racked up a serious following and travelled all over the world perusing her love of fashion. Her advice to any budding bloggers? ‘Be original. Express yourself honestly, and most importantly don’t give up because there are very few over-night sensations in the blogging world!’
Check out what Anouska did, saw and wore here.
60 Seconds with Anouska
If I was a shoe, I would be…. A biker boot with a comfortable high heel
If I wasn’t a blogger, I would love to be… Photographer
My fashion muse is… Mary Kate Olsen. She always looks great.
My most prized pair of shoes are…. Any of my Office shoes of course!
My favourite blog is: … This is a hard one, there are many I love but my favourites right now are GaryPepperVintage.com because her photos always blow me away as well as her eclectic style, and Adenorah.com because she has that effortless Parisian style that I just can’t get enough of.
My most embarrassing fashion moment was … Anytime between the age of 12-15! The ”goth” years were not good to me.
My top tips for dressing at LFW are:
1. Make sure you feel confident in what you are wearing
2. Don’t over-think it
3. Have fun!
Anouska’s Day at LFW
London Fashion week is always a magical experience for me after attending for the past two seasons. It’s only after you have spent an entire 12 hours straight at shows, presentations, parties, and other weird and wonderful events that you can breathe and really take it all in.
I have to admit that one of my favourite things about being in London is people-watching. I simply adore the rapidly evolving bohemian London style that’s absolutely everywhere. Wearing a graphic print bodycon dress, blazer, faux leather cap, and a pair of Undoing cut out leather ankle boots from OFFICE, I made my way to centre of LFW; Somerset House. To say that once inside you are transported into an alternative universe populated only by the ultra-fashionable would not be an exaggeration by any means. The sheer outrageousness of it all can be quite intimidating at first, but underneath the exceptionally well-dressed exteriors lie some of the nicest people I’ve met. It really is such a joy catch up with all of my old friends from previous seasons, and of course, meeting new ones.
My highlights from London Fashion Week AW13 so far have ranged from the beautifully structured simplicity of Zoe Jordan, to the sleek futuristic visions I saw walking at David Koma. I can also safely say that the Topshop Unique show blew me away, at least in terms of sheer wear-ability. I must also mention that each day that I have ventured to Somerset House, I have had the greatest of pleasures to meet so many of my readers! Overall, this has been my favourite London Fashion Week so far, and I’m already counting down the days until next season.
