Rise and shine! I am writing this post at 4:30 am London time thanks to insomnia and because this is the only free moment I’ve had since Tuesday morning. Anyway, our fourth day at London Fashion Week i.e. Monday was the highlight of the whole week and a definition of emotional rollercoaster. Let me start from the very beginning.
Although me and Kätriin are quite different and each one of us has her own sense of style, we do have a similar taste when it comes down to statement pieces and accessories. We realized this when we first met at Moët Chandon photoshoot – both of us were wearing the very same Louis Vuitton Alma BB bags and Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses in blue. And we all know that when it comes to fashion weeks, the biggest nightmare of each and every fashionista is to see someone wearing the very same outfit as you are.
But not for us. As we were picking our LFW outfits from GUESS stores in Tallinn, we both fell in love with the very same kimono sets. Neither of us was willing to give up the outfit to another. At some point the only solution was to leave both of the kimonos in the store and pick something else. Until the moment we realized: why not pull of the “twinning” move and wear the very same outfits to London Fashion Week. Both of us… A bit crazy, but why not give it a try?
The result? I would have never imagined we will get so many compliments and attention out of all the crowd, bloggers and celebrities attending fashion shows. The biggest honour was to be complimented by Paul Costelloe himself at the presentation of his collection at The Waldorf Hilton Hotel. The legendary British designer and one of princess Diana favourites. Mindblown.
We ended our day with the stunning Julien Macdonald catwalk show, which left me completely speechless. I didn’t expect to see Winnie Harlow, Hailey Baldwin and Alessandra Ambrosio rocking the catwalk in gorgeous, luxurious, every-girls-dream kind of gowns and dresses. What a night to remember.
It’s 5.00 am now. I’m off. XX
