Whoever’s a regular on New York, Milan and London Fashion Week (or at least one of the three), they know that these super glamorous, super important, super everything events aren’t only about the designers and models – they are about the front rowers, too. The way you present yourself at a Fashion Week is the way you’ll be remembered till the next one, and you really want to make your presentation count – after all, being surrounded with fashion crème de la crème is a big deal, isn’t it?
On the count of helping you look your best and making a phenomenal impression on everyone present with your outfit, we’re laying out a few front row combination ideas that may spark your imagination and help you put together something wonderful:
Stand out instead of blending in
Fashion designers, as well as fashion experts, are well-known risk-takers; they believe in the power of innovation and risk, so treat them to what they like. We’ll just assume you won’t wander in the realm of kitsch and go straight to the point.
Let your creative juices flow and combine the unimaginable: choose unusual colors and pair them up with exciting patterns; go oversized where minimal is expected; experiment with your hair and makeup; go futuristic when everyone’s expecting vintage, etc. Show everyone present that your style is unique and worthy of VOGUE’s “The 24 Best Street Style Beauty Looks From London Fashion Week”.
Be open to volume
Mulberry’s couture-like volume is definitely the vibe you want to go for, or at least imitate, when debuting first row. This time around, the volume’s in bottoms, tops, shoulders, hats – everywhere! Even though you may not be attending this year’s royal wedding (or anything that would require as much volume in your dress), the sartorial options presented by Mulberry are very welcome for such a special occasion like sitting inches away from the runway.
Wear THE DESIGNER to the designer’s show
Nothing shows more respect to a designer than wearing them on the day of their show; whether you are dressed head to toe in their label or you are just using accents for effect, you are good either way. Choose a piece everyone knows and combine it with something plain that won’t steal the spotlight from the label. Use minimal accessorizing in your makeup and hair to let the label on you shine. A little designer sucking-up tends to go a long way.
Love your outfit
If we know anything about fashion and celebrated fashion pieces is that, the way something’s worn is half of that piece’s mojo. On that note, no matter what you are wearing, wear it with pride and fashion dignity. Feel your outfit, enjoy it, make love to it, and let it present you in your true light. For instance, pairing the currently hyped colorful kaftan trend with a structured jacket and amazing heels will definitely turn heads.
Say YES to playful and statement pieces
The London Fashion Week Christopher Bailey’s “see now, buy now” rainbow looks are everything and more: if you are looking to find a standout piece, one that’ll openly speak about your preferences and opinions.
There, we hope you enjoyed the tips and that they’ll help you get inspired and enjoy every moment of putting together your gorgeous outfit.
