After creating a buzz for so long, the London Fashion Week finally swung open its doors from Friday the 16th of September till Monday the 20th of the same month, with Glitteratis flocking in to have the week of their lives, and no doubt; expectations although very high, were absolutely met. With designers not relenting to unleash their creative wits, the fashion-forward event was full of exhilarating catwalks featuring an almost unending list of art directed ultra-luxe pieces that made some really bold and beautiful fashion statements, giving us a fresh footwear perspective for Spring ’17.
And just as I and some fashion-crazy friends of mine anticipated, there were cascades of exotic shoes hitting the runways with the unveiling of each new collection. Up came the gorgeous, the retro, the weird, the sensational, the ridiculously chic, the awkward, the fabulous and the ugly-pretty lmao! It would take some major guts to pull-off quite a number of these shoes. Trust me, when you see some of them soon, you’ll understand what I mean. Well after looking through the various collections with keen interest and of course getting myself cracked up by some of the ridiculous ones, I grouped all of them into two: The Pretties and The Quirkies. Right below are slideshows of those I consider the Prettiests and the Quirkiests of them all. Enjoy the view and let me know what you think!
And now, THE PRETTIESTS
The London Fashion Week is over, but its effect is still loudly resounding all over the globe and doesn’t seem to me like it would be fading off anytime soon. By the way, news just got in about something extra going down this weekend for the hyper-fashionistas: It’s the London Fashion Week-end! So get prepared for more catwalks and talks by top-notch fashion designers from today (22nd September) till Sunday the 25th when the event would come to a close. Venue is
