WAH. On Saturday, I had the pleasure and privilege of attending Jeffrey Michael’s debut show for London Fashion Week as a guest of koopoi.com, who rather excitingly had some of their gorgeous heels featured throughout the show.
Taking place in the grand ballroom of Goldsmith’s Hall in St Paul’s, the setting alone was amazing, with crystal chandeliers and high ceilings vibrating to the super cool sound of Kanye West and charged with the kind of buzzy, electric atmosphere you’d expect from LFW.

The line sheet read a little something like this:

“This collection, titled ‘From the Water’, features an inspired 19 look collection referencing the initial inspiration of a woman emerging from the waves and sea foam on the midnight beach. The pieces there reflect materiality abstracted and collected from the sandy beaches of England, and showcase a signature Jeffrey Michael triangle print through some of the key pieces.
The woman of this collection is a savvy fashionista, who is glamorous and very flirty. The women who have inspired the collection include Daphne Guinness, Marilyn Monroe and Katherine Middleton. Their grace, poise and consciousness of fashion and its layered changeable nature are reflected in the match between serious couture garments and fun, flirty separate pieced skirts, leggings and wearable denim couture pieces.”

My standalone favourite items of the day were the ocean blue origami triangles which were laser cut on to corset tops, the box pleated skirts in firey shades of red and the big and bold fuchsia pink wedges by koopoi which the models walked in so elegantly. JM also showcased his debut sunglasses range along with his collection which were primarily in the classic bug eye style and very Jacky O.

I didn’t expect for the show to be over in such a flash (Fashion Week virgin over here) but I was completely overwhelmed by the day and left feeling like I needed to blag/break my way in to another show before the week was over! What a surreal experience and a bit of a dream come true though! A big massive huge cheesy grin and thanks to koopoi for my invite, I think I’ll be eternally grateful! Phew, too much excitement for a Monday, need to sit down.

Here are some pics I took on the day and also a link to thestylecolumn.com where you can view professional photos from the collection, enjoy!

What's a girl to wear to her first London Fashion Week show?!

I decided on studded Koopoi pumps, peach shorts by Topshop, an owl print Zara blouse and my trustee leather jacket by Asos. My sunglasses are H&M and I'm carrying the Mulberry Alexa.

Accesories and yet more love for these Koopi killer heels!
