With LFW fast approaching I thought I’d put together my top tips on what to take if you’re planning to attend this season! Fashion week is always one of those things that creeps up on you out of no-where and before you know it, you’re in a mad rush of outfit planning, charging all your tech good and heading to London at a silly hour to watch catch next seasons trends. Don’t get me wrong – I love fashion week, it’s just one of those things that year after year I always feel under prepared for or like I’ve forgotten something so hopefully this list will keep you and me both in check!
1.) Take a portable phone charger – trust me you’ll need it! (Make sure it’s fully charged and your phone is too!
2.) Pack a notebook to jot down the latest trends and store business cards, I’ll be packing my initial engraved Thomas Lyte Notebook which I love!
3.) Take some lip balm & hand cream to keep your lips and hands hydrated throughout!
4.) I always carry a bottle of perfume to freshen up throughout the day, this season I’m going to pack my Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Forever as it’s a really lovely, fresh scent and not to overpowering so a perfect daytime option!
5.) Keep a bottle of water in your bag and some kind of snack as you never know when you’ll next be eating or drinking in between shows and rushing around!
6.) Sunglasses are a must for those early morning rather than the typical British summertime weather! I’ll be taking my trusty Rayban Clubmasters!
7.) I always pack a mini hairbrush, dry shampoo, hairband and grips for any hair emergencies (like the heavens opening as let’s be honest it’s bound to happen at some point over the weekend!
8.) Keep a mini deorant to hand as you’ll be dashing here there and everywhere and it’s great to freshen up between shows! I always keep a Sure 75ml Deodorant in my bag as the size is perfect!
