There is always such hoohah around London Fashion Week, that it's almost put me off.
I love blogging, but I hate having to play a game, and with London Fashion Week, it all feels very competitive and clique-y. You don't have 50k Instagram followers? You can't sit with us.
But what about getting back to the actual fashion, the talented designers and the actual effort of the design of garments?
That's why Graduate Fashion week is so important. This could be the next wave of hot designers every blogger is scrapping over to see at London Fashion Week. After all Christopher Bailey of Burberry was the very first winner of Graduate Fashion Week Awards.
Yesterday, me and Helen headed to the Old Truman Brewery and took our seats ready to watch the show.
Every garment is made by a student on a fashion design course from around the country as part of their final portfolio. I can barely stitch back up my holey jeans let alone contemplate creating such complex masterpieces.
The graduates designs ranged from the beautiful flowery skirts, to tough structural jackets, right through to the more unusual use of materials as you will see.
So sit back and have a good scroll and soak in the talent.
