Hi guys, are you ready for London Fashion Week? Those of you who follow me on Instagram, know that I’ve already attended some awesome and very interesting/educating events and meetings this week. Having been busy and tired for these last couple of days, I realised that we all need a little How to get ready for London Fashion Week guide. Let me share my tips based on my experience and I hope you will find my fashion and not-so-glamorous ideas useful! Press Continue Reading to find out my secrets!
So, how to get ready for London Fashion Week?
1. Make sure you have a diary/organiser in a form of paper/notes/sketchbook.
I know, all of you will go like: “But I have my iPhone!”. Having iPhone is very good and useful right until the point when your battery is dead. Dead forever… So, please, spend an extra £1-5 on a new little notebook. Make sure you organise your schedule by dates and hours. Make it clean and easy to understand. For example, in my sketchbook, I add a time and route of travel from the last event/meeting/showroom to my next destination. Helps A Lot!
2. Plan your outfits.
Please, make sure you have outfits for every day. Also, please make sure these outfits reflect your personal style. Don’t try to be SUPER TRENDY and overload your look with details that you are not comfortable with. When you maintain your unique style, people always see yourself as a confident and content person.
3. Buy comfortable shoes!
I know we all want to be very trendy, tall and slim. Especially during the London Fashion Week. But, I’ll tell you what – you won’t be able to survive if you wear high heeled shoes! I’m known by wearing high-heeled shoes/sandals/boots, but I realised that at the end of the day I can’t walk anymore. Waking up in the morning, my feet is still in pain. that’s why I stopped by Zara at Sloane Square yesterday and bought these comfy black boots. They still have a little bit of a heel, but you don’t feel it at all.
4. Have tissues/antibacterial hand gel in your handbag.
5. Business cards.
Have your business cards/media kit ready. Also, find out a bit more about brands you like. It would help you a lot if you know the name of the owner and creative director of the brand you want to work with. If you are not a blogger, you still need business cards. From my experience, I can say that i found many friends during London events. Always useful to have something handy on you for a future communication!
