Inside London Fashion Week: Mother of Pearl

Here I am in front of the amazing venue space for the Mother of Pearl show. The show was held at the Cafe Royal Hotel which was GORGEOUS! It was amazing. The ceiling and walls were covered in gold and lots of old world details. 

While in London I am lucky enough to experience my first ever Fashion Week! As a fashion student Fashion Week season is better then Christmas (well almost better). Across 4 weeks and 4 cities we are able to see the new and exciting trends for the upcoming season. 

I am extremely thankful to have had the opportunity to volunteer at London Fashion Week this year. I was able to volunteer for two shows: Mother of Pearl and Emilia Wickstead. 

In this post I want to tell you about my experience at the Mother of Pearl show and tell you a little about their Spring/ Summer 2016 collection.....

Sorry for the poor picture quality! I was only able to have my phone on me so the pictures aren't the greatest and the lighting was really odd at the angle I was at! But, I was able to get a lot of shots and a video of the full collection! It was amazing to see the show before anyone else too. 

While I was volunteering I was able to see the dress rehearsal of the show. Unfortunately due to the small venue I wasn't able to see the actual show. But,  I could see the models walk without anyone in the way of my pictures so I was pretty happy. 

To say I'm obsessed with Mother of Pearl is an understatement. I was exposed to the brand when I interned with Purely Fashion a few summers ago. Their collection is full of lots of girly details mixed into classic sportswear. From ruffle dresses and tops to all sequin dresses the collection had a little bit of everything. 


Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the collection. I just love all of the feminine and victorian touches to the clothes. My all time favorite piece was this blush leather jacket. On the bottom of the sleeves they had little ties and it was just a really cute touch to a sleek leather jacket.

These sneakers were a major part of the collection. I would wear these everyday if I could! The feminine touch with the ankle strap and bow make the sneakers more girly and cute. Mother of Pearl also had knee high boots that had a small ruffle on the top which I also thought were very cute! 

A peak at the changing area backstage. Each model had a card like this with each look they were wearing and the details. 

Check out a video I took of the final walk through of the show!
