Consider this our sartorial best foot forward…
When it comes to deciding what to wear at the international fashion weeks, the pressure is real. For most people, a wardrobe is split into two parts: workwear and everything else. These elements occasionally cross over (you might wear a blazer with jeans to the office and to the pub, for example), but on the whole they live separate lives.
If you work in fashion, however, there’s a third section in your wardrobe: the ‘can only wear to fashion week’ clothes. These pieces are a little too ‘fashion’ for the office, and a little too bold for Friday night drinks with pals. But when you’re standing next to the world’s biggest celebrities, fashion editors, designers and street style stars, all in their metaphorical Sunday best, you fit right in.
At fashion week, you’re not dressing for everyday life – you’re dressing to be seen by the style industry’s biggest players. (Deep breath.) So what did the Stylist fashion team wear to the s/s 2019 shows in London?
