If you are lucky enough to be attending London Fashion Week, or any of the fabulous Fashion Weeks, you'll know that organisation is absolutely key to a successful day. You may head out in your favourite heels looking head-to-toe perfection but if you haven't planned ahead, you're fashionable outfit will quickly become your worst enemy. Check out our Fashion Week essentials, and believe us, these bits and bobs have saved us more than once!
When choosing your statement bag, you need to have two things in mind. You'll want a bag that's not only super stylish (beware of the street style cameras!) but that's also comfortable to carry from morning to late at night so nothing with too many heavy embellishments. We're loving this 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli bag which is so on trend.
Fashion Week is the excuse to give your accessories and technology a brand new makeover so slip your iPhone into this classic Mulberry pouch and store away your taxi money and business cards in this beautiful soft lemon Marni wallet that will be the envy of all.
Now you may have iPhone, iPad and camera at the ready but there is nothing worse than finding the last of your gadgets has just run out of battery before the very last show of the day (believe us, it happens!). Don't be caught out on the day, keep a handy notebook with you at all times because when all else fails, paper and pen could be your knights in shining armour. What better notebook than this beautiful Smythson Fashion Weekcarnet embossed with the big four fashion cities?
To-ing and fro-ing from show to show can be quite wearing but with these cute Marc by Marc Jacobs headphones, simply press play and enjoy your favourite tunes to keep you calm and clear your mind from the hustle and bustle of the crowds.
Of course your manicure and make-up were perfect when you stepped out this morning but a lot can happen in a day, especially a hectic day during Fashion Week, so keeping your favourite polish and a hydrating lipbalm at hand is definitely recommended!
Last but not least, we've witnessed enough fashionistas tiptoeing away shoe-less in agony from skyscraper heels to know that a comfortable pair of flats is essential Fashion Week material but Charlotte Olympia proves they can still be stunning like these adorable Ooh La La ballerinas.
