My First London Fashion Week - Pt 1

 ...well kinda. Unfortunately, no shows were on the agenda this year but my friend and I still headed over to Brewer Street Car Park, Soho to snap away at all the envious street style. With cropped fur coats and metallic, space-inspired boots in abundance, the style game this year easily surpassed previous years. But pre-LFW, we popped into Soho Grind to satisfy our cravings.

I can't believe I haven't been in Soho Grind before - I think it's now probably one of my favorite coffee shops in London! As we arrived for lunch, we decided to indulge ourselves in one their BLT paninis, with a mocha and a soy latte to drink. With indie music filling the shop with a funky vibe and vivid neon lights bursting round the room, we snapped away at our urban surroundings before heading on out for some street style snappin'.

Although I love the fact that a car park in Soho represents true British style (gritty, eclectic, edgy and cool), I don't think anywhere can quite trounce the glamorous backdrop of Somerset House. The road was too busy, the area was cramped and rubbish bags tended to ruin a few perfect photos, but nonetheless I thoroughly enjoyed my first LFW experience. It was incredible to be surrounded by people who share the same passion as me - we all helped and fed off each other.

The beautiful Fifi Newbury caught vlogging in action

I loved photographing all the exquisite, cool and jealousy-inducing street style; it was fun to catch candid moments and appreciate the vast array of fashions. 

I love this fun, creative look.

I can't wait to see what the September shows behold; if I wasn't working all weekend, I would of definitely popped to Soho again to see some more of the fashion week sartorial choices.
