London Fashion Week - House of Mea SS18 show



The second show I attended at London Fashion Week this year was the House of Mea show. Showcasing talent from across the Middle East and Asia, the show focused on textures, textiles and tradition.



The outfits were beautifully designed with stunning textures and colours. I was so impressed with the diverse colour range, which again showed the rich heritage in fashion.

The collection was full of pieces using pure silks, georgettes, leather, Indian embroideries and three dimensional texturizing. Fabric manipulation techniques such as heat pressing, perma pleating, distressing and draping are used to create structured to flowy and exaggerated silouettes.



The show took place in the stunning Freemason's Hall in London and I had a great view of all the pieces as I was sat in the middle of the catwalk. I attended this show shortly after the Steventai show, so my outfit details are the same: Jesire trench coat, lace New Look dress and Chanel handbag.

London Fashion Week - Steventai SS18 show

London Fashion Week - Steventai SS18


London Fashion Week is now officially over and this year I was lucky enough to have been invited to three shows! The first show I attended was the Steventai SS18 collection held at 180 The Strand, which was so beautiful. The vibrant and bright colours of the pieces were stunning and the intricate details gave me a real insight into what will be trending next year.

Steventai's new collection was inspired by a sandy summer beach, and this could be seen in the show as the models were standing on sand or sitting in a pool full of foam. The pieces had all of the colours of summer in primary hues. I was most impressed by the lace details and also the stripes. My favourite pieces were ones with the frill sleeves, as these look so flattering and will be perfect to wear in the summer.

I also really liked the fact that the show was much more interactive and you could walk up to the models to see their outfits up close. The models also interacted with the audience by pretending to take photos on their polaroid cameras, which again was a nice touch.

Thank you so much to the team at Steventai for inviting me to the show! I'm looking forward to seeing what next season's collection is like!
