Stylist Fashion Show: Westfield Stratford City



































As well as attending the amazing Look Show at Westfield Stratford City last Saturday (17th September), I also managed to go to the Stylist Magazine and John Lewis fashion show. Showcasing the John Lewis 2011 autumn/winter trends, the store opened it doors to three catwalk shows at 11am, 1pm and 4pm.

Surprisingly, I heard about this event through my mother (check her connections), as she'd read about in Stylist Magazine. Being back at university, I don't really have a chance to pick up a copy, whereas at home, my family work in Manchester so pick up a copy as soon as it comes out. I attended the 1pm catwalk and loved it. These were the best photos I could get, I was stood behind two older women (hence the perms popping up in each photo) but I couldn't exactly complain as it was a free event :)

The make-up and hair complimented the outfits perfectly. My favourite collection? Definitely the tweed, with its high waisted pencil skirts, nipped in waists, muted tones and ladylike finishes (think leather gloves and fancy up-dos). If I had to pick two favourite looks, it would be the black and white coat from the Mod collection (brunette model) teamed with raspberry tights to give it a colour block pop and the pussybow blouse and beige pencil skirt from the tweed collection. There were definite themes of English heritage and lady of the manor vibes coming through the event and being a big fan of formal dressing, I was and am ecstatic! The weather may be getting chilly but the fashion is sure hotting up!
