So London fashion week is in full swing.. and my fash week flu is coming along nicely too I’ll have you know (although I’m pretty sure you’re meant to get ill after the shows not during *le sigh*). Anway, I thought I’d snap some pictures of what I’ve been keeping in my bag this fashion week as my ‘survival’ products… although I’m not sure I have survived it yet if I’m ill already.. boo.
It’s always handy to carry a notebook to jot down any show inspiration, street style and contacts of people you meet etc (it happens more than you’d think as everyone is just so friendly!) A diary is essential so you know where you’re going and when – schedules can get a little packed so be sure to keep on top of it and always jot down postcodes as well as saving them to your phones maps as more often than not your battery will die and the shoe must go on (also, on that note I completely forgot to photograph my charger – and it’s also a little boring but it is the most important thing to carry you must never forget!)
Lip balm, hand cream and powder are all great for keeping to hand so you can top up throughout the day, all that rushing about can take it’s toll and come 5 o clock you’re looking a little worse for wear so be sure to carry makeup for touch ups. I always carry a mini perfume too for a quick spritz in between shows and another must have is the Bumble and bumble Pret-a-Powder which doubles up as a dry shampoo and volumising spray which is never a bad shout (especially with English weather!)
Lastly, make sure you pack some headphone so when you need some down time or to concentrate writing up notes etc you can sit down and shut out the hustle and bustle of fashion week and do your thing. So, in a nutshell that’s what I carry with me to see me through this crazy week. I’d love to know what you carry with you and if there’s anything else I’ve forgotten for next season so do let me know! Also – if you’ve never been before and plan to go then I hope this helps! 🙂
