River Island Street Style - London Calling

London Fashion Week takes place in just over seven weeks, and no doubt street style will be at it’s finest. Photographing the looks that have been planned to the last detail would be so amazing to capture! After snapping at Sydney Fashion Week two years in a row, it makes me realise how much I love this kind of photography. It was amazing catching up and shooting Lorna, from Lorna Luxe Blog  when I made the trip back to the UK at Christmas. We have been dying to reconnect since to collaborate on an amazing street style project. September is way more favoured than the February shows, purely because it’s not so bloody freezing! Hence more time to hang about Somerset House to snap stylish ensembles.

This month, River Island and are looking for the best Australian street style look to send one lucky winner to LFW. What a dream to win this prize! It would be amazing to meet up with some of the influencers I’m connected with on Instagram, and report for Pedestrian from the River Island party. It would be mind blowing to plan a girly week of fashion, lunches and chit chat with some of my favourite fashionistas. And we can’t forget the not so wonderful blisters from uncomfortable shoes to take us to the shows!

The look I am featuring today is layered and a mix of textures. The best thing about London is being able to dress for real cold weather, so styling a look in the winter is not something I am unfamiliar with! I love A/W fashion, and I can’t tell you how many scarfs I still have back in the UK! Thankfully, I was lucky enough to get my hands of this cashmere number from a Jenny Von Holtermann’s, New York to keep me stylish, especially with this bitter weather we are experiencing in Sydney right now. My leather midi skirt was a steal at only $10 from Kiribilli markets. I always seem to pick up the best finds there and adore the buttons down the front of the skirt. I have found some great alternatives online, so check out some of the shopping links below to get your leather midi fix! I opted for a dress worn as a top to tuck into the skirt and these beautiful pointy shoes from Zu. They photograph so well and instantly make the look that touch more lady like.

Ever since I was a teenager, trips to London were a past time, and there are some amazing hangouts I would love to revisit if I’m lucky enough to win the prize:

  1. Burger and Lobster: One of my favourite quick eateries. The menu consists of 3 things: Burger, Lobster and Lobster brioche. It may sound a little boring, but the food is top knotch!
  2. Liberty London: Boutique style department store with the best monochrome exterior. Yes, the designers in store are plush and high end but it’s the decor, old squeaking floorboards and ambience that always win me over! Also the florist at the entrance make it all that more enchanting. 
  3. Afternoon Tea at Fortnum and Mason: Established in 1707, it oozes class and tradition. When there's mint green notes throughout, and a grand piano upon entering you know this is going to be Instagram worthy! 
  4. Sushi Samba: Japanese cuisine with a twist of Peruvian and Brazilian! Yum! Not only is the food amazing, the view isn’t too shabby either. Located on the 38th and 39th floor of Bishopsgate. 
Fingers crossed for the competition, and can’t wait to see all the other entries! Hope all you Aussies are staying warm this week!
