Jasper Garvida at London Fashion Week

You know how as soon as you say something out loud another thing comes along to make you change your mind? And how on Friday I was adamant I would be sitting London Fashion Week out? Well no sooner had I said that then the lovely people over at Jasper Garvida sent me an invitation to his fashion show, and well... I could hardly say no to that could I?

The whole collection was like candyfloss - it was so youthful and light and pretty! I really liked his last collection which you may remember I posted about here, but this was love at first sight! I hope I've managed to capture the feel of the collection in my photos, when I left the show my memory was of all the tulle and babydoll dresses, but looking over my photos now there was so much more than that - cute ruffled suits and metallics and awesome prints.

It was such an amazing experience, and I am eternally grateful to Kristabel from I Want You To Know for taking me under her wing despite having just met me and helping me sneak into the exhibition centre without a press pass, as well as being the one to elbow our way into the press pit at the end of the runway for the second best view in the house (The best being Sherin from High Fashion's view from front row naturally - you can spot her on the left hand side of a couple of my photos!)

The lilac dress in the top snap looks very Victor & Rolf with the tightly-gathered ruffling in that very structured, protruding way, doncha think? Slinky flowy skirts moves away from it though..

See you Saturday! xx

Ah it was great to meet you and I'm glad you took some great pictures. I will forever be known as the blogger-smuggler now, hope people don't get the wrong idea!
