I can't believe it's nearly that time of the year again.. London Fashion Week and it's only around the corner! Where has this year gone already. Each time London Fashion Week starts to appear everywhere such as Vogue, Elle, billboards and sponsorships, the preparation for the chaos and pressure, I get stupidly excited as well as every other mixed emotion. I'm sure it's a lot of make-up artist's / designer / photographer's dream to work back stage at London Fashion Week.. and it's certainly always been mine.

With Spring-Summer drawing to a close a lot of this years trends are falling through to Autumn-Winter 2013/2014.  A Rose Bouquet, the palest pinks to warm rosy glows. Head-to-toe in rose tones I definitely think this will be a statement colour for this year. Summer in shade, this season the palette is back to black and it's not going anytime soon! With it's complex pieces seen at Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney, Versace's sheer lace panels and Roberto Cavalli's thigh-high split gowns. Precisely White is still my favorite trend and you certainly can't go wrong with a wardrobe white-out. It looks so simple yet so classy and feminine. This is the start of a blank canvas which can be seen at Valentino, Prada and Celine to name a few. Walk the Line stamped on zig-zags, stripes and chevrons which may seem a little daunting, if you add the right accessories - monochrome bangles, gold or candy stripes you can pull this off perfectly.

With Autumn/Winter not that far away, we start off with a few trends which have been and will still be a big hit on the catwalk. The Rise of the Oversize, has previously been fur, leather and trench coats and following into this year the beautiful pale pinks are on trend with nothing but oversized. Spotlight on the Skirt has been a big on-trend over the spring/summer this year and with it's knee-length, bold statement pieces you can't go wrong. To monochrome, floral, or just plain and simple skirts. Woman's Realm is definitely the silhouette this year, with it's elegant flare out skirts, breast-hugging bodices, clenched in waists and grown-up curves, it has womanly charms written all over it.

I've still kept it simple through this weather with monochrome which includes a light oversized jacket from ASOS, a crisp white vintage blouse added with a white & gold spike necklace by Topshop, leather trousers, heeled sandals and lastly the snakeskin backpack also by Topshop.
