London Fashion Week

Last week I headed down to London fashion week which was rather exciting. I was looking forward to the fashion show as I enjoy seeing the creative ways in which the models outfits have been styled and put together. I also hoped to be inspired by the trends and styles.

My outfit:
Dress: Topshop
Shoes: NewLook

The fashion show included 4 trends for SS13:

This was my favourite trend! It's influence is Asia, mainly Japan. I find it so magical and beautiful. If you have read my previous post about >>oriental clothing<< you will know that I love oriental clothing so this was the best for me.
