London Fashion Week Men's - The Aftermath

Finally. Those cobwebs have been shaken off. I feel somewhat myself after London. Reality has kicked my ass so far though. That was always going to happen though. Its not every day you get to brush shoulders with fashions most elite, literally. From talking to David Gandy to attending the asos closing party. From Standing beside Tinie Tempah to attending a KTZ party. From sitting front row to standing two steps away from Tom Daley. And lets not forget all the amazing people that made me fall in love with LFWM. Oh, and that crazy lady that tried to run into the KTZ show before being removed by security. Amazing. London was an absolute blast and I couldn't have asked for more on my first experience. However, its not all about parties and celebrities. London Fashion Week Men's: SS18 presented some of the finest work I have ever seen from British designers.

This year is was London Fashion Week Men's fifth birthday and sadly things started a little slow. But that was to be expected after all the attacks that have been happening. It wasn't long though before the designers had kicked things into full flow and brought that bit of excitement back. Topman brought us a 'don't care' attitude that could be seen through its modern romantic theme. This was literally a visual masterpiece. Faults were always going to be to a minimum with these guys. Alex Mullins on the other had gave us a different sense of what to expect this SS18 through quite a peculiar lens. He was all about slouched sleeves and twisted flies. A-Cold-Wall gave us a very intelligent collection that hinted on office work while Liam Hodges wanted to showcase a little more from street to office pieces. They were all mouth watering of course. Ben Sherman took a turn for the better this time around and Charles Jeffrey gave us a rather riotous showcase. Think theatrical. Things got a little serious when it came to Matthew Miller's show with showcase surrounding politicized youth being showcased. However, Craig Green did bring about a lot of thought throughout his collect. It was probably Bobby Abley who stole the show though. I mean who doesn't want Dipsy the teletubby closing their show? 

What is not to love about all of that. This was my first season to go and my first time to travel alone and boy would I do it again. It was all the fun. See you again next time, London, yeah?
