As London prepares to take centre stage and all eyes turn to the cities diverse and talented catwalks, we talk to our Magpie Muse style blogger Lindsey Holland of Ropes of Holland about her dream FROW and top tips about how to survive the craziest month of fashion.
How would you describe your signature style ?
I like to keep things quite simple. I would say my style is minimal and Scandinavian inspired.
What inspires you went putting outfits together ?
I always think of the occasion, and what would work well in the environment, and of course, feeling comfortable and like ‘me’! I dress fairly casually day-to-day and I have to remind myself that I can still do ‘dressed up’ in my style.
Who are you looking forward to seeing at LFW?
One of my favourite shows is always Topshop Unique to be honest, so I’m sure they won’t disappoint.
If you were showing at LFW, who would you put on your FROW?
This is a tough one, without being super obvious about it all! Blake Lively, Alexa Chung, Ashley Benson, Garance Dore.
Whose Instagram accounts will you be closely watching during fashion week and why?
I’ll be keeping up to date with my friend and blogger Lizzy of @shotfromthestreet, the wonderful photographer Lord Ashbury and New York Times Fashion is another goody.
What is your top tip for surviving London Fashion Week?
Plenty of down time. It can be absolutely relentless so after many a blister and stressful afternoons running across London, I now only got o shows that I love and make sure I have plenty of pit stops to stay hydrated and eat properly.
