Fashion: London Fashion Week

18 Sep

LFW Summary


As London Fashion Week draws to a close, I’ve took it upon myself to pick out the highlights; the decent stuff; the things we wouldn’t actually mind being seen in. Thousands among thousands of skinny-ass, Crouchy-tall, annoyingly-beautiful human beings walked down catwalks whilst the likes of Anna Wintour, Philip Green, Kate Moss, Caroline Sieber, Harry Styles gossiped away about what’s going to be big in the style stakes come S/S 2014.

I didn’t get invited to the front row. Absurd to think Nick fecking Grimshaw* did and I didn’t but hey, I’m cool with that, just don’t get me started on Kelly Osbourne. However, every day I watched the videos, gawked at the pics, read the articles and analysed the circles growing darker under the eyes of dear old Cara Delevingne. Poor thing.

For me, fashion is exclusively about looking good. I get that it’s also partly to do with being creative and having fun, making a statement and all that sh*t but ultimately, when it comes down to it, it’s still just about; looking good. LFW is the time when designers forget that little snippet of fact and try to come up with elaborate ways to get noticed, and in their attempt to do so, they create some absolutely horrific monstrosities of clothing that cannot, just CAN – NOT be called fashion:

Utterly. Bonkers.

These people do not look good. Fact.

And before you complain that I am being ignorant about fashion, that these outfits and looks are incredible works of art, cutting edge statements etc etc – let me just say this in my defence: you’re absolutely right. Nobody would wear these clothes on a first date, at a job interview or to the first day of uni. Why? Because not only will they not give the best first impression and ultimately scare the absolute sh*t out of the perceiver, but they’re impractical, ridiculous and a waste of time and money. Oh and did I mention they’re ugly as f*ck!? Fashion for me is about looking good. These do not look good. This is not fashion. So, now you know where I stand, you will understand why my ‘best bits’ aren’t going to be anything that’s in anyway Lady Gaga-esque; the best bits are the things that are brilliantly designed, expertly executed and nicely presented.
