One Day. Stylist Live London 2015

Every Londoner worth their salt knows that Tuesday is Stylist Magazine day. A little lifestyle, fashion and food freebie handed out for your reading pleasure, designed to make your tube journey go just that little bit quicker.

Last week was a big week for Stylist with their “Live” exhibit on from Thursday to Sunday in Angel Islington. After waking to typically cold, grey London skies on Sunday morning it seemed like the perfect opportunity to go check it out.

With everything from fashion to beauty to food on show I felt right at home as soon as I arrived. First stop was the gastronomy area [of course!]. From the cheerful fellow with his rare cheeses to the chap who knew all about flavoured gin, everything was on show and ready to taste. I may have ducked past the chocolate stall several times for a nibble of the samples! Totally guilty.

Next up, homewares where I absolutely fell in love with the designs from Freya. Pastel hues, cute quotes and cushions designed to brighten your day, what more could you want?...

In the fashion section a rail of luxe faux fur certainly caught my eye. So soft to the touch it felt extremely cosy.

And for a little colour, I was infatuated with these nifty earrings. Would you believe they’re actually made from perspex?

A wander upstairs showed the true scale of Stylist Live. Look at all the fashion and beauty lovers milling around. It was a hive of chic people.

To finish the day I headed over to the Stylist Catwalk for a rundown on the AW15 Trends. From Victorian-inspired period styles to supercharged tweed, Stylist’s Fashion Director Alexandra Fullerton provided a debrief on everything she’d seen at Fashion Week around the world and how to get the look on the high street.

And that was it, a wonderful day packed full of my favourite things; fashion, style, food and beauty. It just needed a little travel somewhere in there and it would have been perfect! Maybe next year they can host it in Paris! Ooh la la…
