London Fashion Week! - Day 1

You feel the excitement in the air as soon as you enter Somerset House, where some of the shows are taking place and where everything is based, from the designers' exhibition to the press lounge.

Everyone is on to something, some get into an adrenaline mode jumping from one show to the other, twitting and blogging away, others seem to just show up to have their picture taken, but the whole atmosphere is buzzing.

This season there's a big screen outside featuring the shows as they happen and different backstage images, with models getting their hair and make-up done.

So if you don't have a ticket for a particular show you're interested in you can always watch it outdoors.

Bloggers were also given a special place in order to be able to publish their posts without any delays.

London Fashion Week is a hub of stylish people wandering around different shows and venues, it's ideal to catch a glimpse of what they're wearing.

And of course you also have different designers exhibiting their clothes, jewellery, bags, hats and shoes.

There's so much I would like to show you but for today I will just add the most adorable clutches to go out by Lena Erziak.

Ok, not possible to avoid mentioning the beautiful orange feather cache-coeur by Katie Eary.

And London fashion Week wouldn't be complete without the shows. There were so many things happening that it is physically not possible to cover everything but I'll tell you about Maria Grachvogel's show at the sumptuous Savoy Hotel.

Sculptural lines in different prints or full colour blocks elongated the figure wrapped around in sheer fabrics following the body's movement. For a sophisticated woman! Love the shoes!

I'll be back with more tomorrow!
