My Fashion Week Looks

How you dress during fashion week is equally or more important than some the fashion shows themselves. And believe me as much as you like dressing and shopping, finding the perfect outfit for fashion week is a big challenge. Packing is a different challenge which I partially solved by keeping my fashion weeks short and allowing two days in Barcelona before going to the next fashion week.

I always wondered however how the well known fashion bloggers manage with five or six pieces of luggage flying around the world- probably the rest of their team does not carry luggage so the quantity of suitcases per person averages out.

Apart from the suitcase challenges, weather conditions make fashion week a struggle as we have seen this February and learned that investing in a vast outerwear collection and winter accessories is the way to go. Planning winter outfits in Barcelona didn’t help as it is at least 15 degrees warmer than all the other fashion week cities.

New York

Showcasing the pre-planned outfits in New York was a major challenge; there was no way out of my big fox fur coat, like Carrie Bradshaw I wore everything with the fur including layering coats underneath. Going for winter clothes shopping before fashion week is also impossible because by the time New York fashion week starts all of the spring/summer collections are out.

Friday February 12

I was wearing one of the strongest looks on Friday. Luckily I had recently landed in New York and didn’t mind the cold in the beginning to pull off the look but still had to pair it with the, what is now, signature fur jacket for New York.

 

I was wearing

red Prada platform heels

London

London as the most colourful and showy of the fashion week meant I had to go out of my comfort zone for the looks. We worked on specific references for the looks and came up with a 70s look, a Siberian military look and a glam girl look for the 3 days of London Fashion weekend.

I entered London fashion week in 70s style. I felt more like ‘me’ wearing looks with more color and my 70s look was very colourful and included two of my favourite winter season pieces.

Caramel corduroy Zara trousers
Jimmy Choo suede ankle boots
Three color Shrimps faux fur coat

Milan

Milan, like New York was a weather mishap- I was freezing, but didn’t have my fur jacket to cover protect me this time. Still at above 0 temperature I could endure the short walks and the photo sessions. The looks for Milan were inspired by Italian 60s movies mixed with some 80s and 90s retro.

Friday February 26th

For the first day of Milan fashion week I was inspired by the signature colors of the Italian flag- green white and red. The look was concluded by a vintage green and red Gucci belt.

I was wearing

Ivory white oversized Miu Miu trousers
Forest green American vintage Chinese neck button up
Ivory white thick cotton Miu Miu sleeveless knit
Olive green Prada platform sandals
Forest green Urban Outfitters bomber jacket
