It’s the only thing that gets me through the fact that summer seems to be ending; this week is London Fashion Week. Cue 5 days of absolute chaos around the Somerset House area, with women looking oddly overdressed at about 10am walking down The Strand.
This is my fourth time ‘doing’ fashion week, and I’ve finally worked out a bit of a routine. For me, the highlight shows are always on Tuesdays and Saturdays and now most excitingly Whistles have a runway show to debut their SS14 collection in the middle of the Saturday. It’s no secret how excited I am about this, and the lovely team are giving two people the chance to win the ultimate fash-weekend here in London town:
The prize includes two tickets to their Saturday show, £300 to spend in their flagship Dover Street store in Mayfair, a Bumble and Bumble blow dry to get you ready for the day at Radio Hair Salon, plus a goody bag of their products. Oh, and they’ll put you up for the night in the Town Hall Hotel. Not bad eh? (all the details are HERE).
To enter you’ll need to get thinking (and quickly, it ends tomorrow); Whistles want you to Instagram your ultimate ‘fashion week essential.’ If you were there (or, if you’re already going) what one thing would you absolutely need to get by? It could be a pair of flats hidden away in your bag, a killer lipstick or a statement necklace… Take a snap and post on Instagram tagging in @thisiswhistles and using the hashtag #whistlesSS14… I’ll be there so let me know if you win!

I’m spending tonight preparing myself for the weekend as I’m going to Paris from Wednesday to Friday to celebrate work’s new investment led by Conde Nast (extremely exciting). Whistles heavily features, as always – but then it would, their AW13 stuff is so easy to wear and well shaped, its impossible not to look the fash-part in them!
