So here is my post on the Burberry Prorsum A/W 12 show that took place at Kensington gardens on sunday at 4pm.
I was absolutely thrilled to go, it felt so surreal to be there surrounded by so many beautiful/important/ famous people!! I tried to get lots of pictures to share with you all! (Some pictures are harder to see as I was standing so couldn’t get that close, but I managed to force my way to the front of the standing row with a little elbow work, ha!)
Whilst at the show I spotted Mario Testino, Rosie Huntington-Whitley, Will.I.Am, Alexa Chung, Amir Khan, Bip Ling, Anna Wintour (I was standing directly behind her 6 rows back, eek!) and so many other celebrities that it was quite overwhelming!
The venue was so sophisticated and beautiful- although I was expect nothing less of Burberry as they have to keep up the standards.

Ten minutes to go!
Frow guests included Mario Testino, Will.I.Am, Alexa Chung, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Amir Khan & Rae Morris amongst others (pictured)
First look on the catwalk
The finale was incredible! Once the last model had walked down the catwalk silence fell upon everyone, then roars of thunder came beaming out from the speakers as rain started to pour down onto the glass, looks of amazement spread across everyone. Suddenly, the music starts up again as the models appear one by one with their umbrellas in tow! Perfection!
My highlights of the collection:
♥ Fox/ bow waist belts
♥ Studded leather gloves
♥ ‘The Orchid in suede’ stripy bag
♥ Velvet purple quilted trench
♥ Owl embellishment on top/ jumper
♥ and of course the Umbrellas in the finale
A/W colour palette:
♥ Berry ♥ Caramel ♥ Woodland green ♥ Mustard ♥ Cream ♥ Khaki ♥ Brown
If you haven’t already seen the show then you can watch the live stream of the show Here.
(Which I highly recommend as it was just so beautiful!)
I will be doing an outfit post later on in the week on what I wore to the show and were I got my inspiration from so keep your eyes peeled! 🙂
