London Fashion Week starts on February 20 and there are many devoted fashionistas who cannot attend the shows but are eager to keep up to date with all the action.
So if you want the highlights of the event from the comfort of your own home, here’re three great bloggers who will provide you with all the best bits of the week.
Nicely Turned Out is a fashion blog founded by Hannah Bodsworth, displaying the unique fashion of everyday people on the streets of London. The blog posts are influenced by fashion hotspots such as Shoreditch, Camden and Notting Hill. Hannah says that “endorsing freedom of expression and celebrating non-uniformity” are the most important things for her when blogging. She’s looking forward to seeing new fashionistas parading close to Somerset House during London Fashion Week, but also can’t wait to spot the regular faces and see what their takes are on the latest trends.
Hannah’s blog posts on LFW will be focused on what the people attending the shows are wearing, as according to Hannah that’s the medium that takes the catwalk to the punters. For her, new trends and creative ways to wear them are best spotted on the guests in and around fashion shows.
Hannah shares some of her tips with Artefact about blogging for Fashion Week: “Arrive early, find a seat and soak up the atmosphere. Chat to bloggers, designers and other photographers, interact rather than just spectate,” she said, adding that she is expecting to see retro prints, lots of denim, and designers embracing sustainable materials and production on the catwalk this year.

Cat’s excited to see graphic bold patterns, but will also give an insight into what menswear designers have to offer during LFW. Her blog will definitely include a post on Christopher Raeburn’s collection, as she interned there last Summer and admires his practice to re-use materials. She anticipates LFW will be “bold, contemporary and very daring.”

The blog covers fashion, lifestyle, beauty and travel mainly through the medium of photography. She said: “It’s a wonderful indulgence, an extension of my personality, a diary of my wardrobe and the pieces I’m currently fixating on, as well as an opportunity to tell people about new discoveries and smaller independent brands.”
Julia will be working with the Topshop editorial team and will have access to the Topshop Unique show. “They’ve blown my mind in the past and I look forward to them doing that again. Without fail I always make it to the FelderFelder show, I love those crazy rock chicks,” she added. Julia is planning on covering LFW by doing a daily round-up at the end of each day.
Artefact suggests she is definitely one to follow if you want access to top shows from the comfort of your home.
