London Fashion Week Aw 2015 – Day 1

London Fashion Week Aw 2015 – Day 1 / Street Style 

And so it’s here again…the one week that everyone and anyone in fashion puts on their wildest outfits and heads down to Somerset House. I don’t need to tell you that when it comes to fashion week, street style is almost as important as what’s happening on the catwalk. And once again the street style was amazing ,this season is taking an architectural turn, with minimal, structured silhouettes hitting the streets in a muted colour palette, dusty pinks and bold primary colours.  I’ve met so many fascinating people with such individual styles that it’s almost impossible to pick a favourite.  I had a magnificent time (regardless of the dreary weather!); I saw friends and met lots of interesting people.

So.. here’s my pick of the best outfits from day 1 of London Fashion Week.

5 REASONS TO GO TO LONDON FASHION WEEK

LONDON FASHION WEEK 2015

Many people always have questions about fashion week, like why is it useful to go as an online editor, what do bloggers do at fashion week etc. I thought it would be interesting to explain a little bit more why, in my opinion you should all go to fashion week:

1. Inspiration: With all the designers showing their new collections you can probably guess this is the best time to get inspired. I also get very inspired from the street style of people surrounding me as everyone dresses up a little more when it’s fashion week.

2. Connections: I’ve met so, so many people at all the international fashion weeks which I talk to on a very regular base. I’ve made friends but also got to know very interesting companies where I now collaborate with and am in close contact with.

Lace & Leather

1lace & leather

Lace is my second skin, I love lace and I would wear it seriously, with everything. I adore mixing romantic with grunge. This time I took the risk and mixed the ultra chic with ultra cool, with small elements of sensuality and elegance and I feel pretty feminine in this outfit.

Catalin Botezatu, prezentare de moda in Londra

February 15, 2015

Astazi am participat la  ART & FASHION – Industry of Beauty, care a avut loc in Londra (East Wintergarden, in Canary Warf). Un omagiu adus designerilor romani, unde Catalin Botezatu a pus in scena noua sa colectie intitulata “Domina “. O colectie superba cu rochii de seara (care mi-a atras atentia instant deoarece accentueaza feminitatea) realizate din materiale pretioase, dantela franţuzeasca, dar şi detalii spectaculoase din blana si pene.

O experienta unica pentru mine care m-a fascinat maxim, gratie creatiilor sale si a modelelor machiate si coafate într-un stil extravagant.

BLOG CLASS : HOW GROW YOUR BLOG WITHOUT INVESTING MONEY

February 6, 2015

thefashionmorningblogclass

The biggest fear I think every entrepreneur has when starting out with a new project is being afraid to invest a lot of money. The same goes for blogging as a lot of people think it takes a lot of money and investment to do it right. Just to be clear, starting your own blog is very time consuming (but SUPER fun so who cares about time?) but doesn’t necessarily needs a big money investment. If you have the means to invest in it, great, if not here are a couple of tips to reach the same thing without spending too much:

1. Buy a second hand camera and lens: Content is king as they like to say so this is the one thing where you have to spend some money. When I started my blog I purchased a second hand lens and camera which I payed a total of 100 euro for, which is not too bad. I would suggest purchasing a lens with a aperture like 1.4 or 1.8 to get the results most bloggers are looking for. It’s also good to see if you can borrow maybe a family member’s camera the first weeks so you get a feel of what type of camera and lens you’re interested in.

2. Use the web: It costs a lot of money to hire companies to make logo’s and do your webdesign. I say use the web, there are SO many websites that will tell you everything you need to know and trust me it isn’t that hard to do some of these things yourself. Especially installing and using WordPress themes (check out Themeforest) isn’t as hard as it looks.

3. Link swaps: Again, when it comes to getting in all that traffic it isn’t necessary to spend money on ads.  Another thing that’s always good to do is to connect with other bloggers who are just starting out and to do some links swaps so you can help each grow traffic. Don’t be shy, everyone likes to stick together at some point!

4. Borrow clothing: When you’re a fashion blogger you will most likely need clothing to shoot your pictures. To make things a little more exciting you probably want to invest in more clothing so you can have more variation in content. As this will also cost a lot of money try to look around you and see if you can borrow clothes from friends or family. Maybe your mum has something very cool vintage in her closet that you can use for your pictures!
