LFW: Bora Aksu S/S15

First of all, I am aware it is a Saturday and I don't post on Saturdays, but this just had to be done! Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend London Fashion Week to see Bora Aksu's S/S15 show. I actually won a competition with Vodafone via their Twitter page, which was completely insane. I bought my mum along with me because, well, I'm a nice daughter.

The show itself was only 20 minutes (if that), so the whole thing was over in a flash, but I did manage to grab a few pictures. It is insanely hard to get good pictures from the 4th row, trust me, the models just move so fast and you get heads in your shot and all sorts. Bora's new collection was called "A Dancer With Wings", what a beautiful name.

 There were a lot of blue tones and creams, with crochet patterns and floaty materials being used which I adored! The whole collection definitely had a romantic feel to it. A few pieces towards the beginning were peachy in tone and reminded me very much of a ballerinas outfit, linking to the title of his collection. I didn't think that many of his pieces were too 'out there' which was great because it was quite easy to imagine the sort of clothes that will be out in S/S15. 

As for the makeup it was so beautiful and definitely not over the top. I believe he took inspiration from dolls, or at least thats the impression I got. The skin on each model was incredibly flawless, with a small coating of mascara and very peachy cheeks. I really hope that this look will be an upcoming trend, it just looked so effortless.

I suppose I cannot go without addressing the models hair. Well, personally, I wouldn't ever have my hair like that, but for the purpose of the catwalk it was beautiful, and helped display the collection well without hiding it at all. I did spot a few familiar faces hanging around Somerset House, including Laura Whitmore and Millie Mackintosh (whose clothing range I am desperate to get my hands on!).

I really hope I can attend LFW again in the future, its just so inspiring!
