Style It. Nina Naustdal #LFW SS15

Early September in London; there is a buzz in the air because there's only one thing on every fashionista's mind - London Fashion Week. For seven days the focus is on clothes, designers, parties, catwalks, celebrities and the tabloids. It really is an infectious feeling.

My experience at LFW 2014 began last week with a launch party hosted by Tirade Magazine in Mayfair. From there it's been a week of soaking up the fashions before attending the Nina Naustdal Spring Summer show on Tuesday.

Hosted at the swanky and chic Le Peep Boutique on Park Lane, Nina's event showcased the best of her designs - both ready to wear and couture. Following her philosophy "normal is boring," Nina's designs featured an array of embellishments, statement shapes, luxurious fabrics and bold tones. The collection has an Old Hollywood air about it but with a modern twist.

The runway was opened by musician Linzi Stoppard who strutted her stuff down the runway whilst playing a fantastic Swarovski encrusted violin; needless to say she got our attention. Before long the fashions came out each one offering a new style; there was sleek fitted black, statement bright skater skirts, luxurious lace and plenty of colour. The show closer was a handmade bridal gown by Nina's London Atelier; the perfect note to end on.
