So last week was it … London Fashion Week was on and I was in London town!!! Alas I was doing my day job in an office talking about IT, suppliers and projects and not discussing the best catwalk show, whether Tom Ford has started redeeming himself (in my opinion ha) or which hair and makeup was the best combo! Last week was however the week when the fab people at Label M contacted me to let me know I was a winner in their competition and bagged myself a pair of tickets to London Fashion Weekend (LFWend), a Fashion Fix style and Label M goodie bag each!!!
Having previously been looking at LFWend tickets but unable to get anyone to come with, I was obviously ecstatic, and, having just this year, undergone a bit of a hair transformation at Toni & Guy, making them and Label M one of my go to brands, I was really looking forward to the experience.
My friend Holly and I turned up at Somerset House and called my contact – the lovely Alex. She welcomed us and gave us some Prosecco (a completely cute individual bottle!) and we went to visit the Label M blow out bar!!!
As my hair is now in a fab (if I do say so myself!) pixie crop, I couldn’t get a fashion fix style but the girls willing styled my hair for me while we sat and chatted supping Prosecco. For those of you not sure a Fashion Fix style lasts 30 minutes costs £25 (£20 at LFWend) and is a catwalk ready style!
My friend chose the “pretty in punk” which is amazing and definitely would be the one I’d choose.
Alex came back with our AMAZING goodie bags and also we got two products each – over the moon with that as Label M Sea Salt spray is my “can’t live without” staple at the moment and the Texturising Volume Spray allows me to be uber lazy, not wash my hair and race out the door looking like I’ve spent hours on my hair!!! My Goodie bag even contained the brand new Pliable Definer which was launched through London Fashion Week.
We then proceeded, obviously,to the shops!!!
I absolutely loved the variety and range, and the chance to see some high fashion designer labels I wouldn’t usually see. There were unknown labels as well and any type of style you fancy!!!
Some of our favourites were:
Lucy Coi London – amazing shoes
The Ragged Priest – fantastic pairs of jeans
Never Fully Dressed – Holly’s firm favourite I’m expecting to see feather jackets and jumpsuits on her soon (in every colour)!!!
Versace – need we say more!!! – there was quite a collection including an amazing white skirt for the bargain price of £50! (check it out on Holly in the pics!)
I saw an absolutely stunning Just Cavalli clutch bag that I managed to resist (although do have some minor regret over that decision!) It was way cheaper than the fabulous Sass and Bide jumpsuit that I resisted due to its £550 price tag lol
After walking around the beautiful building and exhausting everything, including the seriously discounted St Tropez shop, we stopped off for a bite to eat at Toms kitchen Deli, I am now on a mission to make myself green bean, basil and almond salad which was completely delicious (prior to my equally delicious Victoria sponge lol)
We did one more quick stop off, a second visit to the jewellery in case I changed my mind, and then went to say goodbye to Alex. Her and the Label M team hosted us very well and really made our day being so generous.
I loved the experience. I would, next time, prepare in advance and take a fair bit of money so I could treat myself – the discounts on some of the brands were really substantial! I can imagine if you were in the customer base who wears Versace, Cavalli and Lulu Guinness as daily staples you would actually just use LFWend as your season stock up!!!
A fab day, Holly and I are so grateful for and we would both definitely, definitely come again!!!

Big Thanks Label M and to gorgeous Holly for accompanying me and allowing me to post her pics on my blog!
