London Fashion Week seems like a life-time ago in the fast paced world of fashion, but shift your minds back to a few weeks ago. We saw A/W17 showcase some beautiful looks down the catwalk with a lot of focus on red, cheetah print, leather but suprisingly, purples and pinks.
At Charity Fashion Live they covered the event instantaneously, recreating the runway looks from pieces discovered in a Charity Shop. Channeling designers inspiration from different shows, their looks were inspired by Molly Goodard and Ryan Lo, as seen above, but also Henry Holland and Jasper Conran.
Streaming their fashion show seemed more exciting than the runways, they had a style but what they did with it was their choice!
I decided to adapt Charity Fashion Lives approach to Fashion Week, taking inspiration from their re-created looks and adding my only Lucy Jane twist!
I raided the local charity shops and picked up all these pieces that were under £5 each, such a bargain!
Being inspired mainly by colour and texture, the snake-skin shirt replicated Ryan Lo's bold prints. His designs use a variety of prints along with contrasting colour. Molly Goodard adapted simple structures, with a basic shaped top along with wide leg pants. This 'anti-structure' silhouette is one I adore with loosing fitting trousers being a must in my wardrobe!
The colour palette of pink and purple was the main stem of my idea. I put together a range of pieces replicating both silhouette and colour. My favourite piece has to be my £5 fluffy pink jacket, it's so snuggly, bright and better than any high street find!
I think this look is bright, bold and fun!
As purples and pinks are colours I usually sway away from, taking inspiration from Charity Fashion Live and experimenting with clothes by buying in Charity Shops allows me to try the weirdest most wonderful looks!
I urge you all to
