Yesterday (14th September 2012) saw the opening of London Fashion Week, showing London’s latest style delights for Spring Summer 2013. Again, I was kindly asked by my lovely friend Antony Waller if I’d like to pop along to Bora Aksu’s show…again I tried to play cool, again I failed, snapping that invite right outta his hand! He did demand my ipad for the show’s official tweets though, so fair’s fair I guess…I now have Bora’s log-in deets and have since read through all the amazing responses from his show – I’m sorely tempted to pretend I’m him and speak to some of the celebs who love him….(smacks wrist)!
I’m so proud to know Bora through Antony – it’s a connection I treasure, he is an incredible jewel in the whole confusing and sometimes strange world of fashion. A calm, collected person who speaks quietly, he’s not one to brag in terms of profession, completely focused on what he loves most – fashion design and illustration and clearly adores his family and friends. He creates exquisite, jaw dropping collections featuring beautiful prints with clever draping and cutting. I tried to work out how one of his dresses were made once and gave up, he’s just too clever, he could never be copied! Please click HERE to watch his show, it really is absolutely stunning.
Dressing for LFW is always a bit scary, because you know that the turnout will be totally OTT, (see pics) so I kept it simple and wore my Baukjen maxi dress with a new Baukjen Kate sequinned jacket and a pair of Ash Jalouse Ankle Boots…my winter wardrobe sorted, although I’ve been meaning to buy a pair of tights from Bora’s collection for ages, so that’s my next fashion purchase, but I do have to stop there as I’m trying to be frugal…I said I’m trying!!
