Attending London Fashion Week as a Non-Fashionista

One little Vice beauty blog: blogger at London Fashion Week 15 Felder Felder

Last Friday, I was given the incredible opportunity to attend Felder Felder’s London Fashion Week show by a brand called Nailberry – whose nail polishes where being used in the show. Personally, I found it simultaneously wonderful and nerve wracking!

I’ve never considered myself “fashionable”. As a teenager, I grew up passing through one awkward stage to another – the photographs make me cringe. At university my tastes definitely developed and matured, but to this day I am still not what you might call trendy.

I’m not usually unconfident about my style, and certainly on a day-to-day basis I like how I dress. However, when you’re suddenly invited to an event that is entirely fashion-oriented, that is connected with the very creation of the trends from which I feel disconnected, well, that is when I start feel less than confident!

But you know what – it was all okay in the end, more than okay even. When I met up with my friend Charlie and headed towards the venue I just decided to enjoy myself. It isn’t always so simple, but sometimes excitement can just entirely override nerves. Rather than feeling intimated, I came to enjoy the sight of all the weird and wonderful outfits that people were wearing. It was a fascinating insight into a world that I generally tip-toe around.

The show itself was a fantastic insight into the “fashion world”. First off, it was great to see the venue and the layout – and then came the incredible clothes, the beautiful models and the realization that fashion week is an incredibly complex and creative enterprise. The energy was contagious, and I left the show positively buzzing.

I’m not a fashion blogger, or even a fashion-oriented person, but I can and do appreciate the energy I felt last Friday. It was a real privilege to attend the show and the whole experience really inspired me – and I’d like to think that this is the real point behind any and all creative endeavours.

This episode has taught to seize opportunities even when at first glance they appear a little bit scary. I could never have predicted how much I would enjoy myself at London Fashion Week, and to think I might have denied myself that because I was worrying about what I would wear! Lesson learnt - life’s just too short for nonsense like that.

  2. I wouldn't know what to wear to Fashion Week either - I'm glad you grabbed the oppotunity and shared the experience :) x

  3. This is one of those events every girl should get the chance to do. And just think, everyone would be stressing what to wear!
