I don't know about you, but New York Fashion Week has certainly reignited my excitement for LFW. I must admit that this year I have been a bit of a Fashion Week scrooge, but the hype surrounding NYFW has made an impression and I am now ready and raring to descend on Somerset House this coming Friday.
London Fashion Week is always a rather eccentric affair, both on and off the catwalk, with the industry's biggest peacocks flaunting their tail-feathers for the flashbulbs. However, this season I predict something of a sartorial u-turn, with a return to the classic, minimal aesthetic favoured by the real editorial elite.
For this reason, I think my LFW wardrobe will be suitably reserved. My new masculine Zara coat shall be making an appearance, as shall simple A-line skirts and classic mohair knits. It's all about details for me, which is why my make-up bag has also had something of an overhaul this season.
Pared back make-up is just the ticket for fashion week. While it may be a different story for the notorious fashion week parties, by day it is all about the flawless finish and new neutral lip.
My go-to brand this season- and Zoë Jordan's too, as so it happens- is Bourjois. Affordable and effective, the latest offerings from the Parisian beauty brand are rather impressive.
So what is in your fashion week beauty bag? Above are my favourites at the moment, but let me know your picks on Twitter @SWfashion_ !
Also who will I be seeing at LFW this season? Bubbly all round!
