You can’t go to London Fashion Week and come back uninspired. Forget about the runway shows and presentations, the street is where it’s happening; from eccentric, unique looks to down right trendy and hot to trot pieces, LFW street style is by far the best place to find out what’s hot and what’s not. Oh and may I add that London fashionistas always bring their a game, come rain or shine – rain being the most likely weather choice we get at fashion week – I’m starting to think it might be a tradition. Check out some of the gorgeous people we met, who greeted us with smiles despite the horrible winds and rains that would make any person feel grumpy and in need of a warm cozy place, rather than queueing outside for the next fashion showcase.
We met the lovely Tracy Rose who was kind enough to let us take her photo after a show. Her hat is absolutely amazing and attention grabbing. It reminds us a bit of the ‘Cat in the Hat’s’ hat but of course a much more fashionable version – and the shell bag to match is just too cute!
Zoe, loves pastels and all things colour, as you can tell from her hair. “I mostly dress around my hair. it’s quite bright so…”. we love how attention grabbing it is and that she manages to pull it effortlessly by keeping her style minimalist and neutral. With style icons including MIA and Chloe Norgaard we can definitely see how she manages to pull off such an attention grabbing look.
Claire Astra (left) inspired by all things High Street, art and MTV, she’s a total pop culture lady if you ask us. She gets most of her style inspiration from the likes of Olivia Palermo and Coachella (the festival looks) while Emma Hill (right) a total street style lover tends to get inspiration from Pintrest.
Eric Farr couldn’t have gone more traditional with the biggest trend of the year; tartan. He confesses that he likes basic with a little edge. He loves designers Vivenne Westwood, John Galliano and Jean Paul Gaultier.
Here’s the lovely Beth Buxton who’s so on trend poodle-like fur coat totally caught our attention. She describes her style as colourful and eclectic, finding style inspiration from the ever style adventurous Helena Bonham Carte.

Cheecky snap we got – the wind absolutely makes this shot. We love how the wind makes this shot super girly, the simplicity and almost domestic feel of the look is just too cute.
Look at the print clash! Tartan, animal print and meggings, this guy has some confidence, but we have to admit it kinda works.
