MY LFW ESSENTIALS.

This is now my 4th season at London Fashion Week, and while I'm in no way an expert (this is the first year I received invites) what I am good at is walking around Somerset House. At LFW it's my Mecca. It's packed full of street style inspiration, the occasional collection, and even the odd celeb (the first day I even attended Kelly Brooke pushed me down a slope).

This is what I carry with me.


My favourite part of LFW is meeting my friends and street styling so I take my camera, plus my phone for quick snaps. Previous LFW I've ran out if charge so this season I've made sure I've packed my charger and an emergency power supply.

The invites and Oyster card are quite self explanatory, I've also wrote out an itinerary this year of what's going on, packed my business cards and a pen to white down details of new friends/ make quick show notes.

Its true when people say "no one eats at fashion week" honestly you'll feel like you never have the time. So I always have a cereal bar in my bag, and a LOT of water. Nothing is worth having to crawl off a train and be sick from a dehydration headache. I also take a bit if money for food and a few cups if tea- Somerset house has a beautiful cafe you can warm up in too.

It's planning to pour down all weekend, so don't forget an umbrella, plus makeup and hair spray to fix any smudges.
