The change of venue did change quite a bit about how we experienced London Fashion Week. Somerset House provided a wonderful stage for all the fashion crowd to peacock and be snapped for posts just like this one. In Soho it was a bit of a bun-fight on Brewer Street, but a short walk away we spotted these two fashionistas grabbing a little refreshment between shows.

“Blink” Events: #LFW Day 1, SS’16

Friday, September 18th, 2015

To mark London Fashion Week‘s move to the Brewer Street Car Park in Soho, the British Fashion Council commissioned this brilliant video featuring a poem written and performed by World Poetry Slam Champion, Harry Baker along with some great imagery that perfectly sum up the many faces of this gritty, spangly, exciting, non-stop beating heart of London.

Here’s to another season showing the world why London leads the way in fashion innovation. Season on season the British Fashion Industry delivers world-class, game-changing, utterly creative yet excellently commercial collections. We at Blink London are so proud to be part of it! Keep an eye out for all of our coverage here on the blog, on our instagram, facebook page, twitter and pinterest.

“Blink” Events: Conde Nast College of Fashion and Design

Monday, April 15th, 2013

This may look like a rather unassuming doorway in Soho, but in fact it’s one of the most exciting doorways that I’ve been through in my fashion career. Yes, this is the entrance the brand new Conde Nast College.

If you’ve been following my tweets or the “Blink” Facebook page, then you may well be aware that I have been invited to be a Visiting Lecturer at this new establishment. I must admit that this is currently filling me with a rather alarming amount of butterflies, but they are the most stylish butterflies that I have ever encountered.

That feeling of nervous excitement was enhanced somewhat when I was invited to see the space last Wednesday, along with many of the other Visiting Lecturers. This is a stunningly clean, white space that has been incredibly thoughtfully designed to ensure that the student’s gain the most from their time both inside the lecture and seminar rooms, and in the communal spaces (including a rather glamorous roof terrace). The college is packed with cutting edge technology and both the students and staff will all be armed with ipads to work with in what aims to be a virtually paperless environment.

At the end of the tour the founding staff, (Susie Forbes, Principal. Angela Jones, Course Director. Gary Pritchard, Vice Principal) spent some time sharing with us their innovative vision for the college, and then they invited us to all introduce ourselves to the group. Well, I was one of the last to speak and by that stage was utterly awe struck by the expertise, experience and talent gathered in the room. In fact I think I’d like to change my status from lecturer to student as soon as possible because all of the lectures and seminars are going to be incredible.

I’m giving my first lecture on the 24th April. Fingers crossed it’s the first of many.

Streetstyle: Carnaby Street

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Although its become a tourist trap and the location of some pretty mainstream retailers, there is still something essentially cool about Carnaby Street. Its often a great place to style spot very unique and interesting looks. Maybe this is because it’s close to lots of Soho creative offices and the fact that it’s right by Liberty? Who knows- but the fact is, we like to loiter with our camera at the ready and we generally manage to shoot some interesting streetstyle.

Asta spotted this young lady when out last week. We just love how on first look there is something quite vintage and refined, then on closer inspection her style owes a lot more to a punky and hard edged aesthetic. The vintage jacket has been customized by some hardcore looking studs and spikes. The shorts are leather and the shoes are pretty fierce too. Great hair and a very cool attitude just puts the cherry on this particular cake. Enjoy!

Blink streetstyle: Soho, so chic

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Our wonderful “Blinkette”, Asta, was out and about after the Louboutin Press Day (post coming tomorrow!) when she spotted this chic pair in Soho. We just love their looks. The great accessorizing, attention to detail and quirky individuality just sums up what is great about you stylish London ladies.

Accessories: On the Sunny Side

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Its been a glorious couple of weeks and so Londoners have been donning a stunning selection of sunnies to complete their Summery outfits. The newest look seems to to be a Chanel influenced rounded style, but the classic Ray Ban Aviator or Wayfarer is still a good option. Here are some streetstyle shots that we have collected over the past sunny weeks around town featuring some great shady action. We’ve also dropped in a couple of stylish spec wearers too, just because they looked too cool to be left out! Enjoy…

Menswear Street Style: Soft vs Smart

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

We’ve collected some great menswear shots over the past week or so, and thought we should share them with you and make this a boy’s focused week, before we go full on into London Fashion Week coverage next week.

So, here we have some great fashion moments spotted around London. The boys seem to sit in two style camps- either the super smart, crisp and refined or those who are more about texture and layering. We think both look equally brilliant. What about you?
