How a lawyer infiltrates London Fashion Week

Roll out of bed, ladies – it’s Friday! Here’s some fresh fashion juice to carry you through to the weekend…

Last year I flew to London for Fashion Week and successfully infiltrated the fashion industry’s flagship event. A lawyer at London Fashion Week? What business does a lawyer have at fashion week, I hear you ask? Well, there wasn’t a whole lot of lawyering going on but I did get the scoop on the hottest trends for your summer vacay, I discovered a bunch of cool office-apropos looks, and was privy to a few cheeky backstage goings-on. Here are the highlights. Drink up…

Uber cool FROW and Show – Ashley Williams cast almost entirely “regular” women as models….but no lawyers I’m afraid. Her ss17 collection was a grungy/frilly hybrid, an eclectic teenage dream with tailored silk, statement earrings and rhinestones. This blazer + a grey pencil skirt = YES.
