With a new and busy work schedule and a last minute festival trip to Wales popping up; this season fashion week took a bit of a back seat. Don't get me wrong, I love fashion week- but this year I was adamant on only applying to the shows I really wanted to see, and designers I truly love (probably a little over-ambitious but a girl can dream). With that, on the Tuesday I was lucky enough to nab a ticket to Ashish; a designer whose collections, both collaborative and independent always get me excited. From when I first discovered his work through his capsule Topshop collection a couple of years back (I have worn my 'Parlez Vous Anglais' top to death), his designs and ultimately his level of fun always have me at hello. With his SS13 offering consisting of a mass of glittery sequin based goodness, slouchy mis-matched sports wear, geeky fun, some seriously cool slogans (wouldn't be complete without them) and scrunchies and Reebok classics (sorry Carrie Bradshaw)- it was a pretty kick ass collection (send the white dress/Tres Fatigue top my way)!

For the show I opted for something pretty simple. After spending about 30 years (ok a few hours) planning outfits last season, I was set on wearing something I ultimately felt happy, comfortable and pretty subtle in. With both my green Topshop trousers and burgundy blazer coming from last years Autumn wardrobe (hooray for no spending) I teamed it with a newer Topshop shirt in order to feel a little more 'trendy' (I did just say that). Additionally, before the show I managed to hit a couple of new design exhibitions and people watched on the trendy cobbles of Somerset House (a rubber-neckers paradise), which pretty much completed my mini taster of SS13! See you next season...

  31. Have to say often I find FW collections go over my head and they're all quite eccentric (the point I know but its how to translate them) anyway I think Ashish was a good choice as the elements are clean, simple and luxurious. Also your outfit is perfectly Autumnal xo
